Mind Prison

Being dependent on anything except life’s essentials creates a bondage that puts one in prison…this prison is of the mind and blocks love’s guided energy…so you may be alive…but you never truly live…

A substance or object can seem like it holds you prisoner, 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, dependency on anything would be non existent. The subtleness of this prison is mind boggling. Take an alarm clock as an example, as soon as the alarm rings if the snooze button is hit, instantly you are a prisoner because the mind wants the moment different. This is the way being a prisoner works and if there isn’t awareness of this, it’s off to the races of being controlled by a Conditioned Mind that’s dependent on wanting things the way that it wants them.

Prison takes on many 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 the external solutions used by the Conditioned Mind to fix an internal void. Until something is done to allow the mind to settle, this void will probably be there until the last day of your life. If this is what happens life will never truly be experienced in the way that it could be. Some bondage may not seem as devastating as others, but whatever is used it doesn’t allow love to be your guided energy. Love can’t be experienced from the prison of your own mind and because of this life will never be truly lived. Only love’s guided energy allows you to truly live and it’s your own mind that holds you in prison and blocks this from occurring…
