A Powerful and Useless Mind

Why do we do the things we do? Why can we do some things but not others? Who decided things were going to be this way instead that way? Will the answer surprise you? The answer is you. You set your own limits and goals. You decide what can be done and what can't be done. Your mind can be so fragile and unpredictable, but if you know how to use it, it is a powerful tool. You've been conditioned to think a certain way because everyone believes that is the way things are. And, you are taught that if you do things any other way, there will be consequence. This is true. For every thing you do, there will be consequence. But, not all consequences are bad. Why are we taught that cause and effect from our actions is always a bad thing? Facing the consequence of taking a life is not the same as facing the consequence of watering a plant. All ot takes is the belief that we can do more. It is not that we don't want to believe or can not believe. It is that we have been taught to fear consequence and to second guess our decisions, causing doubt. How do we train ourselves to use more of our mind, so we can enjoy a better quality of life?
