The Questioning Mind

The mind is always questioning and seeking clarity and to a certain extent this is useful and does bring clarity, but when the questions start being deeper and more complex then the mind simply cannot cope. When this happens, the mind starts spinning and finding ways to drag in a lot of emotions and feelings, which only confuse the heart and cause reaction rather than clarity.

The heart is where the centre of the universe resides, but is it really if our connection to the heart is from reaction rather than clarity? And how to realise this truth that many times we hear from great spiritual teachers or poets?

Rumi says:

“Your task is not to seek for love,

 but merely to seek and find

all the barriers within yourself

that you have built against it.”


I believe that what Rumi is saying is very significant and can be applied in a very practical way to deal with the mind and its games.
