What & Where is the MIND?

What is MIND? Where is it located? And why does it cause so many problems? I don’t know about you, but I love blogging.  Seeing what others write about & what interests them. Yesterday I came across a blog that really got me thinking more about the mind.

Psychologists, Therapists & Psychiatrists all concerned with mental health, refer to the mind as often being disturbed or out of balance etc. Of course that’s their profession – to better understand the mind and treat mental health problems. Yet, if the most skilled surgeon on the planet disected our body (including the brain) I guarantee he/she wouldn’t locate anything resembling mind.  Naturally they’d be able to locate the brain because its tangible, but they’d never locate what’s known as mind.  On the other hand, we in the West take shed loads of prescribed medication to balance the mind  So I guess today’s dilemma is this….

How do you personally define the mind & if it can’t be located anywhere in the body, how can it be responsible for so many mental health problems?

The Art of Negative Thinking

Why do we find it so difficult to see the positives in life – yet we have no problem finding the negatives?

This was a question asked by one of my regular Saturday morning Mindfulness group members. The theme for the session was ‘bringing back the Joy in our lives’ and it became clear, somewhere along life’s journey our joy gets replaced with depression & anxiety.

So why do we find it so easy to think negatively about ourselves & the world – but so hard to find the positives?
