Mind And Its Projections - Poem by Varanasi Ramabrahmam

Our personality, ego and the phenomenal world are mere projections of mind in the wakeful and dream conscious states of mind. The moment mind ceases to be as in deep sleep or wakeful sleep phases of mind, all these projections vanish from awareness.

Appearance and disappearance of mind are responsible for all our psychological conveniences and inconveniences. In the resting or disappearance phase of mind, which is our natural state of mind, we are not troubled by moods or thoughts, pleasant or unpleasant.

Even though every happening appears real and happening, it is mere projection and activity of egoistic mind in the wakeful and dream phases of mind. The moment mind is released of ego all happenings are received and treated with equanimity. Every happening is given its due and treated accordingly and individual is not affected by pleasantness or unpleasantness associated with the happening as they are relative to our idea of us, an individual bonded.

Bonding is cultivated and not natural or inherent or inherited. All spirituality trains us and tries that we cultivate truthful identity of us. This realization of true identity of us and being that always; saves us from falling prey to physical phenomenon and mental phenomenal world.

Spirituality informs us that the Real Identity of I is Pure Consciousness or Unoccupied Awareness or Content-free Contentment. Thus our presence of mind protects us from the psychological vicissitudes which are mere projections of present mind.
