Do you realize that people are deceptive thinkers? We are unaware that we live in a hypnotic environment. Our mental processes are hypnotic. The subconscious mind responds conditionedly to the words we employ in our thoughts. The words' actual sentiments are produced regardless of their meaning. The words we use are like the keys of a piano, and the subconscious mind is similar to that instrument. They make a particular sound. We play a melody on this piano 24 hours a day, yet most individuals have no clue how their brains function.
Our ability to reason and think requires the usage of our brains. Without utilizing our minds, we won't be able to comprehend how the mind works, and without this understanding of ourselves, we would continue to exist in a world of illusions. In this article, I'll attempt to explain how we trick ourselves. True, reality may be stranger than fiction. You don't have to agree with me, but if you can, please attempt to refute what I've said in your head and see if what I've said makes sense.
Do you realize that words may hypnotize us into changing our views and ways of thinking? In addition to using words for communication, we also utilize them to convey our emotions and ideas. Words transport us across time and spark our creativity. Without language, we would be unable to escape the current eternal reality. We have used words to communicate and ponder since the dawn of time. The result of self-hypnosis is our ego. Without employing words, it is unable to manifest in the conscious mind. It must remain in the background if there are no words. But in order to live in this harsh environment, the ego must continuously make an appearance in the conscious mind by using the brain and its thought process. As a result, using words and thinking develops into a habit.
We must comprehend how words impact us in order to comprehend how slippery our thought process is. Keep in mind that only the ego produces language. For instance, the term "soul" conjures up images of immortality and something that never perishes. It doesn't matter whether such a thing exists or not. The phrase "spirit" or "spiritual" immediately conjures up a reality distinct from the one we can see in front of us. When we employ the terms "heaven" and "hell," the same thing occurs. They immediately create a universe outside of the present. All of these phrases give our emotions shape. These phrases, which were formed by an ego seeking immortality, are used every day by individuals in their everyday lives. Instantaneously, a realm of dreams and eternal existence is created.
Let's consider the "sun" and the "moon" as an additional example. They are actual items that provide you an instantaneous, belief-free mental image. Think about the terms "angel" and "Santa Claus" after that. Additionally, they provide an immediate image, which most people do not consider to be genuine. However, for many individuals, the use of terms like "God," "Allah," or "Bhagwan" may evoke a potent spiritual reality. Why? It's because there is a belief system attached to these words. The ego never seeks the truth; it is always looking for immortality. Words like "resurrection" and "reincarnation" immediately conjure up images of a realm beyond the present with the consoling promise of continuing to exist after death. How can one not be seduced by such a lovely realm of illusion? It gets more real in our imaginations the more we consider it. Thus, in order to have a feeling of serenity, permanence, and security, we imagine a whole different dream world.
Are we different from earlier civilizations when we compare our current one to them? In every civilization, the ego-created ideas and ideologies provide a safe haven. They demonstrate our efforts to align our thinking and behavior. They make an effort to provide purpose to our demanding, depressing lives. Unfortunately, individuals are prepared to fight and die for their ideas because they are unaware of the mechanics of illusion and have no understanding of how the mind functions.
Yes, the words we employ elicit conditioned reactions in our minds. The similar impression is produced by the phrase "yesterday, today, and tomorrow." These words transport us from the past to the present and the future when we employ them. Nevertheless, time doesn't exist in actuality.
Today's environment demonstrates how the ego employs the mesmerizing power of language to survive and thrive in this harsh reality. Words may bring us joy or sorrow. We speak out during both singing and prayer. Words amplify the emotions we experience when we fall in love. Music without lyrics does not have the same impact as music with lyrics. It appeals to our hearts and emotions and may cause us to cry. We immerse ourselves in a seductive universe of words every day for 24 hours. The hypnotic universe of a time traveler is maintained by the radio, TV, movies, newspapers, books, and other media. It is understandable why the ego does not want to and cannot stop thinking. It has the delusion that if it doesn't think, it could vanish from the mind. Since the ego can only manifest in our conscious mind via words, thinking nonstop develops into a habit, causing the mind to descend into an unending state of turmoil.
Thus, using the information we learn from the outside world, the ego conjures up and builds a universe of dreams in its quest for immortality. Instead of facing and comprehending truth, it would rather stay in a realm of illusion. This explains why academics are reluctant to examine the ego because they are averse to confronting their own perspectives and goals. The medical industry must be kidding when they claim to practice evidence-based medicine.
Do you realize how mesmerizing our environment is now that you've read the above? How can we become aware of the eternal truth that is there in front of us? Just become conscious of the words and how you employ them in your head now that you are aware that your thought process is hypnotic. Recognize your feelings and emotions. Become conscious of how often you express your emotions and ideas in words. Watch what happens when you momentarily stop speaking. When you do this, do your ideas and emotions have any substance? Recognize your aspirations, anxieties, and hopes. The ego seeks to be in charge of everything. Just a nasty habit, that. Be conscious. Sync up your emotions and thinking. Only if you are conscious of your actions will you be able to do this. You get unhypnotized when you become aware. Get your perspectives in order. You will find how timeless and serene the mind is faster the sooner you comprehend how your mind functions and learn more about how your ego functions.
Rene Descartes, a great French philosopher, did not know what hypnosis was when he said, "I think; therefore, I am," in 1637. He was unaware that self-hypnosis is the source of the self or the ego. We are hypnotized beings. You can only get the ego (thinker) into your thoughts if you speak. Without the words, the ego is forced to take a backseat and act as the conscious mind's spectator. The ego's nature prevents it from taking a backseat. As a result, thinking and ego are connected: "I think, therefore I am."
After taking into account everything I just said, if you still believe you are not in a fool's paradise, please reconsider. Don't just pretend to be a scientist; really become one. If you stop chasing your shadow, there is calm and eternity to be discovered in the timeless now. Find it while you are still living. Because once we pass away, we all go back to the timeless realm.
