the mind develops

through 3 stages

1 - the first mind

When the personality crystallizes as the First Mind, it becomes a thing. Accordingly, the First Mind sees a physical world of things.

The First Mind is characterized by the sense of "me" being inside a body.

The First Mind divides the world in two:

me & you

this & that

here & there

There is often the sense that something is missing, that we are only seeing part of the picture, part of ourselves. This can sometimes lead to confusion and isolation.

 

Most of our cultural stories operate from the First Mind, like good guys vs bad guys. Science too operates from the First Mind. A scientist studies an apparently separate, objective world.

The First Mind feels like it's in your head.



It is thought to be created by and located in the brain, a physical thing.

Where do you feel like your mind is located?

2 - the second mind

"I am me and I am the world."

 

The Second Mind is the integrated mind. The duality of me/you, here/there, now/then, this/that, subjective/objective is seen through, like opposing characters in a dream.

 

The doubts of philosophy, limitations of science, and abstractions of mathematics are reconciled in the Second Mind.

Mind = Matter = Mind

The world is seen and felt as imagination.

You are no longer confined in a body.

Your brain and body are recognized as images of the Second Mind.

You are uniquely you, all of you.

Creativity, insight, love, ecstasy, bliss throw open their doors.

Life is an ongoing discovery.

Walt Whitman

Of physiology from top to toe I sing,
Not physiognomy alone nor brain alone is worthy for the Muse, I say
the Form complete is worthier far, The Female equally with the Male I sing.

is the mind in your brain?

or, is the brain in your mind?

The Second Mind is non-local.

 

All locations exist in the Second Mind.

 

It appears as Here, there, Everywhere.

Sankara

When the mind manifests, everything manifests.
