Mind Entrapment

Being dependent on anything but life’s basic necessities creates a bondage that one becomes entrapped to. This entrapment is of the mind and blocks love’s guiding energy so although you are alive, you never truly live…

A substance or object can seem like it entraps you, but it’s your own mind that puts you in the place of needing to reach for something. Without the mind telling you something is needed, entrapment to anything would be non existent. The subtleness of this entrapment is mind boggling.

This is the way being entrapped works and if there isn’t awareness of this, it’s off to the races of being controlled by a mind that’s entrapped to wanting things the way that it wants them.

This entrapment takes on many different forms: drugs, alcohol, gambling, talking about others, eating habits, pouting or sulking, social status, being miserly (cheap), trying to control situations and people, judging, lust, greed, envy, self righteousness, false pride, and the list goes on, but what all these have in common is they’re an external solutions used by the Conditioned Mind to fix a false internal problem of lack. Until something is done to allow the mind to settle, this false lack will probably be there until the last day of your life in this form. If this happens life will never truly be experienced in the way that it could be.

Life can’t be experienced when you’re entrapped to your own mind and because of this you never truly live. Only love’s guiding energy allows you to truly live and it’s only a false sense of lack that keeps you entrapped to your own mind and blocks this from occurring…
