TRAIN-ING & THE MIND
Think of a train rolling along the railroad tracks. If one of its two rails was to go missing, the train couldn’t perform its proper function, its clear direction, or its designated purpose. In short, there would be a disaster!
In the human realm, the mind also has two parallel “tracks”. Both are essential. Together they distinguishthe unique human realm of sentient experience. We cannot function optimally in life if these two tracks are not distinct one from the other AND if they are not in optimum balance, alignment and harmony.
One of these tracks is our capacity to think, to reason. The other is our innate capacity to be Aware. Most of humanity has only the slightest functional recognition of this latter track. This Awareness track is, therefore, the track that is underutilized and, as a result, diminishes the potential of a fully Realized life experience.
