ONE MIND

Well as some would say--there is your mind,my mind, his mind, her mind, others mind, subconscious mind, conscious mind, rational mind, irrational mind etc etc.Wow, no wonder it can make one dizzy just trying to decide how many minds there are and how to use each one. But wait a second, What if there is only ONE mind? That's right just ONE MIND. As I see it this is the only truth of it all. One Mind that is used by each of us in the way we discern to use it. Boy, IM sure I could open up a can of worms by declaring there is only ONE MIND and that is exactly what I am saying! I truly believe ONE MIND is all we have. Now how you decide to use that Mind is entirely up to you and I would never try and tell you that my way is the "right" way or for that matter that my way means anything to you. I usually take quite a bit of flack when I say things like One Mind, One GOD in man as man is man. Or that all of us are Gods. Or anything else that goes against some religious beliefs.And I sure am not trying to convince you that your "way" is wrong or anything along those lines. All I am saying is that I personally believe there is only One Mind and that we are all a part of this Mind and the way we use this Mind is what brings each experience to us.Soren Kierkegaard once stated:"There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true." I wholeheartedly agree with that statement.And from the Science of Mind comes this quote: There is no such thing as your mind, my mind, and God's mind. There is only Mind, in which we all "live and move and have our being." This also I agree with.My hope would be that each of you beautiful people can use your mind in a way that will not only enrich your life, but also gently touch other's lives in a way that brings joy and peace to both of you.And while you are at it why not do something nice for someone just because you can! I now leave you in peace, love, and joy!

Kierkegaard has long resonated with me as herein. : Must giggle at the thought of ONE mind. I could only think of a plot for Star Trek or some such...likely been done too.

Hey Cap! My favourite Kierkegaard quote is "People understand me so little that they do not even understand when I complain of being misunderstood." I also love the one you quoted. It's true!
I think we all have one mind, even if sometimes we feel as if we're going out of it!
Hope you're well and happy!

I haven't heard of those quotes-
I must be some other 'mind.' Giggles..a special-like-mind.

Joking aside, I find ALWAYS so insightful when I come here, Cap, so much so I feel this great need to thank you, not just for your posts, but for being who you are, one, unique, loving, mind:)

Many hugs your way and holiday cheer-xo

Great post Captron.
If we are the universe made manifest, then why wouldn't we all be of a singular consciousness?!
Glad to see people recognising a greater perspective.

Peace to you my friend.
