Mirror of Mind

(English translation of my Gujarati article Man no Ariso) મનનો અરીસો

We look for our physical appearance in the mirror every day, but do we look towards our mental state? We always pamper our body. Have we ever seen our mind?

Our happiness is locked in the mirror of our mind. If you want to search the key, there is one condition, you have to practice solitude. You have to go within and try to recognise your desires and thoughts. We are used to following a people-pleasing mentality rather than focusing on our thought process. 

The need of our heart is expressiveness though we do not fulfil it. Hence, we create a mess with our emotions.

  • What you like – Express it.
  • Whatever you dislike – Express it with politeness.
  • What you love to wear – Wear it.
  • Whatever you dislike wearing – Please do not choose it.
  • What you love to eat – Have that kind of food.
  • What you hate to eat – Ignore that kind of food.

Our actions are the opposite. We speak to please people, not to please ourselves. We choose that outfit which is not suitable for us then we start to blame on weight, material quality and making misery out of it. We choose restaurants for dinner parties to show off. These actions take us far away from getting the mirror. We accidentally wear a sophistication mask.

To get happiness, we should train our mind. We should understand heart’s wishes and train our mind to fulfil those wishes. Let the mind realise about wishes. Create rhythm between your heart and mind to get a mirror of mind for your happiness. Give an effort for something good.

In the journey towards self-reflectiveness, our biggest obstacle is a people-pleasing perspective. Whatever we like, we don’t do it and whatever we do, we don’t like it. This is the root of our sophistication attitude. We wear a sophisticated mask every time, the mask takes place of the mirror.

We should take a stand for our happiness on our own. We should take responsibilities to fulfil our wishes, dreams or favourite activities rather than being dependent on our parents, spouse, friends or relatives. At certain age or period, we should be emotionally independent, we can’t afford to be always emotionally dependent on others. Sometimes, dependency leads to despondency.

We always check our outer beauty in the mirror same as we should check our inner beauty in the mirror of our mind. Don’t wear a sophistication mask. Solitude helps to get the mirror of the mind, the mind’s mirror is the source of your happiness.

  • The habit of self-reflection leads you towards a mirror of the mind.
  • The habit of people-pleasing leads you towards a sophistication mask.

Spend some time for yourself. Start the journey for self-reflectiveness, analysis your behaviour, attitude, perceptions and choices in life. Ask a question to yourself – Am I living that kind of life in the present which I want to live? It will help in other areas of your life as well like profession, managing relationships and family time. If you are happy then you can make others happy. Mental health should be your priority. The more mentally healthy you are, the more healthy your relationships with your near and dear ones. Your mental health depends on getting a mirror of the mind and avoiding a sophistication mask.

  • Don’t wear a sophistication mask.
  • Find out the mirror of the mind.
