Inside the Mind

Understanding and Dealing with the Mind as the Place
where we Consciously Exist and Act


Lecture Presentation



Understanding and dealing with the mind as the place where we consciously exist and act, where the inner mental life takes place and where the mental self is active. The place where we experience, become aware, and where we must consider the conditions of existence, our own individual mental and physical existence and development and the world around us, our role and responsibility in them, how to manage and deal with them. The place where by nature we are individually in charge and in control, where we must actively be engaged, and where we must take responsibility for everything we do and we engage in, individual behaviour, actions and conduct. Understanding the mind, the inner mental life and the mental self - nature, elements and processes, conditions, needs, demands and challenges, our role and responsibility in them, how to manage and deal with them. Understanding our mental needs and how to meet them, in non-material ways, in the mind, through mental work and effort. Understanding our mental faculties, how to develop and use them. Developing our natural mental powers and abilities, translating them into the necessary mental skills and practices, and engaging in the required mental work and effort. Engaging in a process of continuous, life-long mental self-development and growth.

Understanding and managing what takes place, what we face and have to deal with, what we do and need to do, what we must establish, develop and maintain in the mind and inner mental life.  Consider and make sense of the experience, perceptions, sensations and feelings, thoughts, ideas and recollections that enter the mind and awareness, the conditions that lie behind them, and how to deal with them. Establish and maintain the necessary internal mental conditions, in everything we do and we engage in, before engaging and dealing with others and the world around us. Establish and maintain a sense of self, the human and the mental self, mental order and stability, clarity of mind and understanding, a sense of certainty, security and confidence. Dealing with mental problems and difficulties, mental disorder and instability, doubt and confusion, uncertainty and insecurity, feelings of fear, stress, anxiety, frustration and depression through considering, understanding and dealing with the conditions that lie behind them. Understanding the results and consequences of failing to understand and manage the mind, the inner mental life and the mental self.
