Distill to be Still #02

..the journey continues… of lenses to senses…

In my last post I wrote about how our eyes sees things and we act in a particular pattern because of certain ideas/ thoughts in the context of our mind already.

Whether we agree or not. Whether we like it or not. We all have different measurements to judge someone. We have different altitudes on which we set a particular image of a person. It’s like whatever context I feed in my brain will decide that person’s image.

Be it because of past experiences with someone, be it emotions, background,  moods, beliefs, habits, etc. It could be any silliest of the things which creates a certain picture of someone because of FILTER in our minds.

What is a filter? Filtering is selection process through which the best is kept and unwanted is dumped. Sometimes it’s the part that remains in the sieve, is of interest too.

So it works both ways,

Filter to let in best.

Filter the worst to keep in best.

What are we doing?

We are filling our mind with unwanted waste-prejudices, false beliefs, indifference, negativity, anxiety, denial, ignorance, repercussions. Certainly not a nice place to live in.

What I mean is meet people with a clean slate (mind), like a mind of a child. Give them a chance to show their real selves (which people fear to show these days, as they will be judged, so natural).. If you care- then observe, question (without being personal, but about the person). Create the image with your lenses on a clean slate with their colors and not anything with rum of your mind. Be it, for a person/ situation / things in your life, every bit of it would turn from awful to wonderful.

Advantages of having a mind like a ‘clean slate’

#you will not expect (as no pre-made image)

#learn more about it (as mind is open)

#more acceptance (as no mould to fit in)

#zero disappointment (all the above reasons)

We all agree to this…

No one likes to be judged, but still all judge. We have different rules for others and different for ourselves. What goes around, comes around. Whether we like it or not (consciously/ unconsciously).

Like for example I mentioned in the previous post-

I’m searching for that particular dress in the entire house, but it is in laundry/ friend borrowed it/ with tailor.

Same thing applies with people/ events in life. We are so sure about something that our mind out of habit forces us to think in a certain way. But, the fact remains something else. Break the habit and the behaviour will change. Open your mind about people, events, life.

It is…

THE CONTEXT, NOT THE CONTENT OF LIFE (says Sadguru) works wonders on our minds.

..and not with your outward self image.

Our perception of our own self is put in our head by someone, something, some events. Please do away with those concept right now.

Our perception and interpretation organises information in our minds through the information we provide. Make sure you are well informed. About yourself and everything else around.

Please stop putting filters in our minds. On people,events, life. Instead, give people chance to give you filters to add beautiful colours, dimensions to your being.

Lead the bond/ events/ life with those filters, which doesn’t highlight the flaws (flaws- indeed make you what you are). Not the filters which block the power of you touching lives.

Focus on positives wearing distilled lenses with an uncluttered film in your mind.

When we distill impurities from our mind we become still in our mind. When you become still, you are more closer to your being, becoming more powerful in your mind..

Reclamation …

No One Is You And That Is Your Power!


P.S. We must be slow in trusting people, that doesn’t mean you doubt. We must be slow in loving,  which doesn’t mean you hate. We must be slow in allowing people in our lives. Have your guards on. It means just filter people with their filters and let them in gradually.

If you still don’t like them. You are free to bid adieu. BUT, DO NOT JUDGE!!!! Don’t you dare to influence others opinion. For, there is someone who will love them. As it is said- either you judge or love!

The process of distillation is on a personal level. A person becomes WE, when in society. So, first change your filters, then society.

  2. I guess it’s easy said then done. I mean judging someone initially. Our mind is programmed in such a way that we have some pre assumptions when we meet a person. So we do judge people, even if we don’t want to BUT I DO AGREE WITH YOU. 😊

  6. Woah Woah Woah…. I just kept on reading it again and again. That was so much true. Loved it. Especially that thing you quoted:-
    “We must be slow in trusting people, that doesn’t mean you doubt. We must be slow in loving, which doesn’t mean you hate. We must be slow in allowing people in our lives. Have your guards on.”
    That’s really the words I was searching for. Just awesome and straight to the point with so much clarity. Keep it up…👍👍👍❤
