Changing Your Conditioning

If anything is ever going to change in your life, the conditioning in place will have to change. This will only happen when there’s awareness the conditioning isn’t providing the most beneficial results…

When something is conditioned it will do certain things because it has to, whether it wants to or not; it has to do what it has been conditioned to do. Our mind becomes conditioned in this way and unless this is changed or at least noticed to some degree, it will remain conditioned. It’s imperative to understand this so first the conditioning in place can be identified and second so the conditioning that may not be serving you in the most beneficial way can be changed. The conditioning that ran my life for many years was a self serving one and after a long period of time (forty nine years to be exact), I realized the conditioning was not really benefitting me or anyone else for that matter. This realization was the beginning stages for the possibility of the conditioning to change. This will take some effort because of how ingrained the conditioning is, but the effort is more so about awareness than an actual exertion to get rid of it.

Once you become aware there may be other conditioning to live by, the process of changing it begins. This is difficult because part of the original conditioning is to hold onto the familiar even if it’s not providing much benefit. This is how the dog chasing its tail syndrome remains in place; to the point of its own destruction. The Conditioned Mind has many tools and influences it uses, some inner some outer, it’s just part of the conditioning. This is why when a person acts in a particular way they are accountable, but aren’t really responsible for what they do. If anything is ever going to change in your life, the conditioning in place will have to change which will only happen when there’s awareness the conditioning isn’t providing you with the most beneficial results…
