The cover of this book illustrates the effect that Full Realization can have: it can break the chains that bind persons. Each link of the chain is a nonsensical idea or bogus concept or false belief that comprises the content of the fiction-filled "mind" of persons, and the chain was set in place by programming and conditioning and domestication and acculturation, "The Four Horsemen of the Mental and Emotional Apocalypse."
Similarly, persons are imprisoned in "the mind," and each bar of that prison is one of the nonsensical ideas or bogus concepts or false beliefs mentioned earlier.
The book offers a discussion of the three factors involved in understanding that which is at the root of all relative existence problems, namely, the formation of a "mind":
1. consciousness, rooted in the Absolute;
2. the brain, rooted in the elements; and
3. the "mind," rooted in wrong programming and faulty conditioning and debilitating domestication and duality-supporting acculturation, all of which fill the resulting mind with a belief in lies and bogus concepts and distorted ideas and superstitions and all sorts of falsehoods.
What did Maharaj and to offer what he shared on this subject and to allow the final pointers to come via that speck of consciousness which eventually came to abide as Pure Awareness:
The "mind" problem according to Maharaj:
"As to my mind, there is no such thing. There is consciousness in which everything happens."
" ... Your confusion is ... in your mind ...."
"Whatever is conceived by the mind must be false, for it is bound to be relative and limited."
"I am double dead. Not only am I dead to my body, but to my mind too."
" Distrust your mind, and go beyond."
"All illness begins in the mind."
" There is no chaos in the world except the chaos which your mind creates."
"There is no such thing as peace of mind. Mind means disturbance; restlessness itself is mind."
NOTE: You may see the book, "There's No Such Thing As 'Peace of Mind' (There Is Only Peace If You're Out of Your Mind)" for the complete discussion of that point.
" ... the mind obscures and distorts."
" ... it is the mind that creates illusion."
"Stop making use of your mind and see what happens."
And he made the point that the mind is a symptom of ignorance.
Maharaj's solutions regarding the "mind" problem:
"Don't rely on your mind for liberation. It is the mind that brought you into bondage. Go beyond it altogether."
"Beyond the mind there is no suffering."
"Learn to separate yourself from the image and the mirror. Keep on remembering: I am neither the mind nor its ideas."
"There is no such thing as mind. There are ideas .... " and "Abandon the wrong ideas, for they are false and obstruct your vision of yourself."
"The death of the mind is the birth of wisdom."
"To know that you are a prisoner of your mind, that you live in an imaginary world of your own creation, is the dawn of wisdom."
"I find I have lost the mind irretrievably."
The author offers this for the readers' consideration: to be free is to be free of that which imprisons you. What imprisons the masses? The "mind"; thus, to be free is to be free of the content of the "mind," all of which is rooted in programming and conditioning and domestication and acculturation.
To be free of the "mind" is to be free of the "madding crowd," for the "mind" is that crowd of people who programmed you, conditioned you, domesticated you, and acculturated you and who continue to speak to you. (The only difference is that now they "speak" from within rather than from without.)
Many of them you may not have seen for years, but they are as close as your brain and as dominating as ever (if you have not followed this "path" that can free you of their influence and free you of the subconscious ideas and concepts and beliefs that will otherwise drive you and control you and take away any ability to make independent choices at all).
Best regards on that "journey," should you undertake it.
