Walks of Mind: Last Thoughts

Copyright The Guiding Path 2005-2006
I get excited when I think of how and why we behave as we do. I hope that through these walks I have shared a little of my excitement and wonderment at exploring that great and often greatly misunderstood area that we all inhabit called the human mind. My firm belief is that what goes on in our mind determines how we experience our lives, that everything that goes on in our mind happens for a reason, and that there are simple insights that allow us to uncover those reasons.
If we do not understand what is going on then life is something that happens to us, we become the victims of our own unintended making. Life may happen to bring us happiness, or it may bring something else. So long as we do not understand even the most basic parts of it then we have very little choice about which we get.
Once we do know what is going on then we can begin to change, without mysticism or relying so much on half-understood methods drawn out of trial and error. Through basic understanding we now have the key to the door of change and it is up to us what we do with it. We can change quickly, effectively, simply, and permanently. We can change to enhance our personal effectiveness. We can change our appreciation of and enjoyment of life. We can change the ways that we relate to ourselves and to those around us. We can choose what to change and what to leave as it is.
