The concept of mind is understood in many different ways by many different traditions. Most agree that minds are constituted by conscious experience and intelligent thought. Common attributes of mind include perception, reason, imagination, memory, emotion, attention, free-will and a capacity for communication. The Original Mind is the intrinsic essence of mind, the true self. The modern era comes with Freud's topographical model of the mind comprising of three regions: the conscious system, the preconscious system, and the unconscious system. Mind is energy which is all over the body. Mind is not present at some point in the brain, but mind is all over the body. The goal of life is self realization which means an absolute silence that it cannot be disturbed by anything .It means the complete disappearance of the ego. And with the ego everything disappears. Instead of "watching the thinker," you can also create a gap in the mind stream simply by directing the focus of your attention into the 'Now'. Just become intensely conscious of the present moment. Mindlessness is the right word to explain pure space without any possibility of falling back.

Abstract


The concept of mind is understood in many different ways by many different traditions. Most agree that minds are constituted by conscious experience and intelligent thought. Common attributes of mind include perception, reason, imagination, memory, emotion, attention, free-will and a capacity for communication. The Original Mind is the intrinsic essence of mind, the true self. The modern era comes with Freud's topographical model of the mind comprising of three regions: the conscious system, the preconscious system, and the unconscious system. Mind is energy which is all over the body. Mind is not present at some point in the brain, but mind is all over the body. The goal of life is self realization which means an absolute silence that it cannot be disturbed by anything .It means the complete disappearance of the ego. And with the ego everything disappears. Instead of "watching the thinker," you can also create a gap in the mind stream simply by directing the focus of your attention into the 'Now'. Just become intensely conscious of the present moment. Mindlessness is the right word to explain pure space without any possibility of falling back.
