On My Mind: So Many Things

A House

The mind is beautiful; frightening, heart wrenching and pure. It is a house and memories make it a home. Imagination stretches its wings and flies, but always returns home to the mind. The very core, the soul and fibre of our being is in it.

A great many fascinations and visualizations dare to trouble the peace of the mind. On my mind are vivid, happy memories, pictures of my dog, to-do lists and Facebook passwords. Hopes, passions and dreams are born in it.

Much like wood, it slowly absorbs scars. And one day the scars become indiscernible from the mind.  What scars are these?

The Things On My Mind

They may be worry scars. Worries of unpaid bills and lost love. They may be scars of grief; these scars run the deepest. Grief and regret; guilt and doubt – these are on my mind. So many things are on my mind all at once – the evils of our busy, advanced, fast-paced existence.

mindDid the previous generations also have so many things on their minds? How much have our worries, thoughts and imaginations evolved from them? I wish I knew what the phrase ‘peace of mind’ means. I wish I knew what babies have on their minds.

Do any answers come to yours? Is it the same as the brain? When I sit alone by the window, with my Brazilian coffee and Belgian chocolates, I wonder: are the voices in my head my mind, my brain or my memories? Am I talking to myself, or is it talking to me? And then I tire of wondering; it is exhausting.  And so I settle myself with a book, and escape it – to sail the troubled waters of another’s.

  1. Well, where do we start, on my mind is an amazing explosion of happiness. Lots of people manifesting their visions and dreams, all connected to me as we all are by the way. Quantum physics or is it a rabbit hole? How deep do I wanna go…Lets just say In my mind there is happiness, joy, dancing a lil victory dance…in my mind…I can be and do anything I want 🙂 Thank you Amin for this post!

      On her behalf, until she sees it – you are most welcome! I am so happy for you that things are going so well! Namaste. 🙂

    2. cheers for the “amazing explosion of happiness”. You got every thing that i ever dream of. Keep treading down the happiness lane 🙂

  2. [ Smiles ] You’ve probably learned that the mind is powerful.

    Therefore, if you dwell too much on unpaid bills, you will manifest unpaid bills!

    1. Ms Claudette

      I don’t know what Amina’s take is on that but it is most certainly my understanding, Renard. 🙂

    2. :). there is a lot more on my mind like “Brazilian coffee and Belgian chocolates” other than unpaid bills. I would rather boast of “Brazilian coffee and Belgian chocolates” in my mental manifestations.

        🙂 So true Asma!

  3. Hello and thanks for some great and though provoking comments on the content. I am a new contributor on Claudette’s Blog and i love the space and respect she gives to individual opinions. The image caption project is something so exciting for me as a writer. I simply love writing here. Looking forward to more on my upcoming thoughts on a couple of more images from Claudette due next week. Working on it right now 🙂

      Clarity is key Bronwyn…lists might help, unless you have to make a list of the lists? 🙂

  5. The mind is like a monkey, it keeps jumping from branch to branch, tree to tree, never sits still.

      We have to tame that monkey as best as we can, no Vyjay? 🙂

    It’s true, it doesn’t matter what age, we all have a lot of thoughts in our mind mostly about what will happen next. This picture reminds me of someone reminiscing about the past. I don’t know why.

    1. Ms Claudette

      That’s how it strikes you and that’s all that matters, Elizabeth! Thanks as always for visiting and sharing your perspective. 🙂

    2. Elizabeth, so true is your impression. I see past in everything. Past is exactly where i was once, present is where i am now and future is where i strive to be in the best possible way (one step at a time).

  7. I think they did have worries, but they also knew how to relax and love life. This picture to me shows learning to let go and relax. We need more of this.
