When conditions exist, things arise

When conditions exist, things arise
— Buddha

When you adopt passing thought as our own, it holds your attention and then you get lost in that thought. When you get lost in your thought, you become that thought.  Once you become that thought, your emotion arises and become fuel for current thought. When your emotions become fuel for thought, you believe your the thought. When you become thought itself, you start seeing more passing thoughts from point of view of current thought. You adopt and become another passing thought. The cycle repeats several times in a second and it happens at light speed. In a second we become many thoughts. We fuel, nurture, become thought after thought. This continues stream of thoughts we labeled as MIND.

Mind does not exist by itself, it arises and experienced when you become bunch of thoughts. When you become mind, you think you are mind. You believe self is the mind and mind is the self.

I am not my mind. Your are not your mind.

We can separate our self from mind through awareness. Awareness arises when we let go of past or future created by our logical mind. When we let go of logic.

Just the way we become thoughts, we need to become awareness by letting go of all thoughts.  This can be done, many human beings done this, whoever done it and gone beyond mind, we called  them as “Buddha”. Gautama is one of those Buddhas.

Our goal may be challenging, but beginning it is half done.
