I have read it in some article on IL only that when we have to choose between mind and body. We should always listen to body. Because Mind is shrewd enough to conceal its hidden agenda. Like If after meeting someone you get negative vibes, your mind will be smart enough to catch those unsaid words, those expressions and it will create verbal statment that here are 10000 reasons why you should hate that person. Does mind really hinder our spontaneity ? Chances are yes, very often when we want to rush and hug our husband.. It will give a tick.. wait! he never does it, so why should you do it, Keep your ego on.. and keep fuming inside. :queen Perfect example of dragging Mind in useless things. Very Often , when you do something as per your natural self and goodness doesnot reciprocate . Its mind who comes and worsens things. It start telling why you should behave as others behave with you. If you keep listening it , in due course of time you will find yourself exact replica of people you hate. So is mind all useless and set to put us low all the time. No its not.. Its one of major distinguishing feature of humand kind over other Species. We just dont use it right. We use it when we have to remember other's hurts to us, we use it when we have to hold ourselves back. While we should be using it more in places, where its really required. Like while there is discussion in house, who should do what and how we should spend our money or how we should let our kids enjoy restrained freedom, how I should tackle my difficult peers, How I should watch my mouth next time.. In such scenarios, we let our hearts do the job.. I guess we have just confused these great faculties with each other. Any thing Sponatenous, bring your heart in. You will be much relieved. Anything long term, far fetched, flex your mind. It will never disappoint you.
