Mind power

When I was a child, my mother use to narrate stories about the power of mind. She made us believe that mind is so powerful that if we concentrate on something, we can achieve it. Years later, someone told me that our mind is so strong that while we sit we can get a door opened without having anyone to touch it. It's a hard sell, but beyond the literal meaning, I knew it carried a deep message.

As I see the world today, I have learned a lot about the power of mind and the underlying meaning of hard sell quotations. Being a writer, I often find my mind revolving around finding the best of words that can narrate something in a unique way. However, there are many more instances where my mind has been my accomplice, and held me through the tough tides, a few of them are:
  • I have always found a relation with the great ideologies, self belief, principles, morals and thoughts. Ironically many a times I have failed to follow them. There comes my mind telling me that I am just being human.
  • It's easier to help someone than to help yourself. There comes my mind telling me that I am amongst those few who have the courage the stand up and help themselves, so don't fiddle, keep trying.
  • I often end up fighting with my EGO and ID, trying to comprehend what is right and what is not. It's when I end up judging myself more than anyone else and my mind tells me that I don't have to be harsh on myself.
  • Despite realisation, I take time in making life's tough decisions, for me as I know that once I have decided there is no looking back. My mind shouts, take your time, better late than never.
  • When I get bogged down by the mean world, my mind tells me not to be sad, the world is meant to be like that.
  • When I get into an impulsive mode, my mind tells me that since I have kept quite for a long time, it's okay to get in that mode. 
  • When I want to be alone, or I am lonely, my mind refuses to leave. I am glad I have a mind of my own.
  • Besides that my mind tells me that I have a beautiful life to live, it will not come all by itself, but I have to put serious efforts and believe in myself. 
  • When I am scared, my mind tells me that I am not suppose to live in fear, I need to stand up and fight back.

In the end, no matter what I choose, my MIND tells me that I have either learn something or have gained something that could be as simple as a plain smile.

Author's Note: Does your mind speak to you like my mind does?

P.S.: There are a lot of posts lying idle on my drafts folder, but they never get to the 'publish' slot. And every time I think of myself, I feel, as I fail to have a constant flow of posts, a part of my identity is lost. But its my mind that comes to rescue me, it tells me that I write not to force the readers with posts and stories, but to let the readers feel free and connect with my words.


  1. and to let the readers to connect with themselves while reading you... lovely post. Yes I do talk to my mind as well and my mind responds. Sometimes there are wars between heart and mind and mind gives me strength when heart makes me weak. So i truly believe its better late than never like you. I take time too! My mind makes me warrior when i need to and it pacifies me when there is a need. it helps gaining insight and it helps developing a bond and understanding with life and its hues. Its all about the mind power that defines our happiness, life, success, decisions! Good thought!

  2. Thank you Shesha :)
    The fight between heard and mind is most difficult to tackle. I find my wise mind many times allows the stubborn heart to have its say, and often it's for the good. Don't you agree?

  3. yepp.. sometimes its good. sometimes we take wrong decisions in emotions, so mind power is really useful to sense the dangers lying ahead! though its important to listen ur heart and mind both when it comes.

  4. I could well relate to the line where you said, " Being a writer, I often find my mind revolving around finding the best of words that can narrate something in a unique way". I personally feel we should be free to describe something in the best way.

    Besides that,I sometimes feel I have 2 minds. Left an evil, right's the good one. I often end up bewildered.
