Definition of Mind

Until now we always talk about the "mind" but if you already know for sure that the definition of the mind?
To speak about the definition of mind, very difficult to define with
words. The mind is the mind itself, the mind is not the body, it can be said that the mind plays a very important role in human happiness itself. With our minds can act either negatively or positively with the appropriate reward to the act.

How to control our thoughts? This question often I find and I heard from my friends. We can control our minds through the five senses we are already there since birth is: Eyes, nose, ears, skin and tongue.

So we usually can control our minds through our interactions with the five senses. For example, when we do not like with one dish or food, then we can develop an awareness that "oh .. this is the tongue, one of the food as an object of the tongue. So when we don't like taste of the food, we know that this is a natural thing that happens, this may result from a sense of food that does not fit with our tongue ". with this awareness, we can decide, whether this should be abandoned or be left, it depends on the way your thinking.

Application of the above principles can be done on other senses are of course with each object. Here is the object of our five senses:
  1. Senses eye, the object of all that we see all things living or inanimate object that we like it or not.
  2. The nose senses, the object of smell or fragrance.
  3. The ear senses, the object of a great voice, a small, rough or smooth.
  4. Skin senses, the object is rough or smooth surfaces.
  5. The tongue senses, the object that is feel good or bad.

Every individual in this life aware that any decisions made in life have their risks. There are good and bad risks, but if the mind to think that these risks are common or natural person's life then it will feel lighter and there is no pressure (stress). If it is developed, reflected upon and implemented correctly, then in one's life would not have found a trauma because he knew that the trauma is the result of past events the memory of chasing and haunting thoughts and when we realize that the only memory that is formed through the natural aware of the memory can be eliminated little by little. Things like this do take time to be implemented continuously, not been able to briefly unconscious but necessary process completely. Keep in mind that the development of training is more intensive and ultimately achieved an element of discretion in life.

As written on Atthakatha Dhammapada verse 36 as follows:

"The mind is very difficult to see, very soft and subtle, the mind moves as he pleased. A wise man is always keeping his mind, someone who kept his mind will be happy."

Let us think positively, because with our positive thoughts can be positive that produces happiness in life. Let us always think positive about everything to gain success.

Very interesting blog and veeery interesting post.I've always asked myself what the mind is,what it is made of,if the brain is its physical support and what happens to our mind when we pass away.Is the mind the same as the soul, the spirit??I personally think that the mind is pure energy of some kind and that it is eternal and that it nourishes, as the post says ,from what we experience through our five senses but what happens when our body does no longer exist???It's a great mystery...
Again,congratulations for such a great blog and greetings from Argentina!!
