What is Behind the Mind

by Hale Dwoskin

Lester Levenson“The thing that keeps us from recognizing and expressing our infinity is simply the mind, conscious and subconscious. If we are to express this infinite nature, we can do it only by getting behind this mind. When we reach the realm behind the mind, we operate without thoughts–intuitively–and are in harmony with the whole universe.”
Lester Levenson, Happiness Is Free and It’s Easier Than You Think: Book 2 of 5, Session 3

Most of the time we let the mind take the forefront of our consciousness and ignore that which we truly are. We live life as though are thoughts and feeling are real and are who we are.

Develop the habit of watching the movements of the thoughts and feelings – of the mind. When you are truly watching the mind you are watching it from the realm of Freedom. To know if you are truly watching the mind, notice if you are trying to direct the show of your thoughts and feelings. If you are trying to direct the show or reacting to your reactions then you are not watching. The mind is merely engaging with itself.

Releasing itself can be a form of trying to direct the show to varying degrees. The more you are attached to the outcome of the release the more it keeps you in the realm of the mind. However, every time you let go the mind recedes a little or a lot depending on the depth of the release. The deeper the release the more you feel and experience that which is always behind the mind. So both watching and releasing support you in discovering the beauty and harmony that is behind the illusion we call the world – the projection of the mind.

Experiment with this quote from Lester and these suggestions from me and let us know what you discover.
