THE NATURE OF THE NEW MIND
The first thing I learned was about the religious mind and scientific mind. The scientific mind is more of a mind, which focuses on the directive paths. The scientific will find all the reasons with something have taken place or will take place. The scientific mind will see life situations through a textbook point of view. Like a policeman or a detective they both will focus on what is practical and won't consider that a decision can be made freely. Most authorities of that nature figure through a cause and effect method. So when someone commits a crime the primary focus is why the person did it. The only options that come to mind are all set thoughts according to the past, which is a scientific approach. For example a detective will say that someone committed a crime because they were poor, or a jealous person, or they had a premeditated motive.
The opposite mind set that I read about was the religious, which Kristnamurti referred to as a mind with no direction. A religious mind is a free mind I believe or a mind, which has no boundaries. A religious mind could be thoughts persuaded by religion and all religions have some kind of differences. If someone believes that a person can't or shouldn't take certain actions sometimes religion has everything to do with the shaping of that persons opinion. I believe that a religious mind is not really free because there still might be some sort of religious boundaries. For example it is against the law to smoke marijuana, people in our society do it anyway thinking freely as they do so. Certain religions state that using any form of drugs or alcohol is not right at all. Some people have sexual intercourse before they are married, and most religion mention that this is wrong and it should only be used to make children. So if a mind is religious it might have many boundaries. In actuality is not free unless you have no inner thoughts that tell you what you're doing wrong. In the back of your mind there shouldn't be any boundaries. If you break an American crime by stealing it is not too much of a problem to a free mind. Smoking or taking drugs is not a problem to someone with a free mind because they are truly free. When authorities ask them what they are thinking its possible for a person to say that they weren't thinking, it doesn't matter, or I felt like it is truly a free mind. Religious minds have some boundaries while scientific minds seem more structured and directed.
learned about understanding myself. I have never looked at my self like that. I know what im afraid of but I think it is very complicated to explain to anyone because they can never see the world through my eyes. It isn't until someone asks me about myself that I can define immediately who I am. I understand myself; I think everything I do has a meaning. I was soft spoken when I was younger and I still am, but I...
