State Of Mind
"The Ever Changing State Of Mind"
Defining State Of Mind
State of Mind here is defined as how we feel and think at a particular moment in time. State of Mind can be understood as how we are reacting in the present moment.
State Of MindIn Depth
It is important to understand the nature of the State Of Mind – that is it is ever-changing.
In one moment one can experience happiness and in the other moment one can experience sadness. The state of mind within us is always in a state of flux and can be easily influenced by our exterior situation / surroundings.
Importance Of Understanding The State Of Mind
It is important to understand the nature of the Mind.
Because if we do not understanding that the nature of Mind can change from one state to another, one can easily fall into the illusion that whatever emotions that one is experiencing is going to be permanent whether it be a happy state or an unhappy state.
For example, when one lacks such knowing this can make someone who is experiencing depression or lonliness at the time believe that the misery they are experiencing will last for their whole life. Or that when one encounters a problem which makes them worry they may fall into the illusion that the stress and problem will always be there haunting them. And it is actually quite common to fall into such a pessimistic belief in moments when we are overcome by the negative states of the mind.
To release oneself out of the Suffering States of Mind one has to understand that our State of Mind can be changed, and it is actually constantly changing. This Truth has to be understood not at the intellectual level but at the level of Realization accumulated from experiences. It is then one can then truly Realize that we are the Creator of our own State of Mind.
Path Of Creator
State Of Mind In Relation To The Path Of Creator
Our destination is towards Greater Happiness.
But what greater happiness is there if the happiness we obtain is not ever-lasting i.e. shifting from happiness to sadness to the next then from happiness to sadness again and again?
The Path Of Creator address this question by taking us to understand the Cause of the Suffering State of Mind. By understand the cause of the Suffering States of Mind then we can then address it and release it. And the more the suffering states of the mind are released the less our mind will shift towards the negative states of reality.
Desires In Relation To The State Of Mind
We can find out our desires by asking ourselves questions. For instance, "What should I do for a living?" Then from that question one will receive the answers from one's mind.
However the quality of the answers that one receives will be dependant on the depth of one's awareness of The Self, thus when one only has surface awareness one will only receive superficial answers.
Realize that when our surface emotions/thinking is too strong then it can block ourselves from becoming aware of our deeper selves. In this situation our surface emotions/thinking can make us believe that they are our "true desires” and drive us to live in a way that may not reflect our Deeper Selves.
For instance, when one questions out of anger, one will be inspired by the answers to sustain the anger, i.e. with thoughts about how to control or punish the other person.
For instance, when one questions out of doubt, one will be inspired by the answers to sustain the doubt, i.e. with the thoughts of failure.
Thus to get a clearer answer to one's desires, one will have to learn how to declare a desire without it being colored by one's thinking or emotion.
This is why the practice of Stillness is important because it allows our state of mind to be disturbed by thoughts and emotions so that we can observe for deeper answers to the questions that we ask.
The Destination is towards becoming the Masters of Our Mind naturally. And this is done through developing the Knowing of The Self and transforming our Sufferings.

The Creator's MeditationLink here
Simply observe and continue the meditation even when one experiences the urge to stop the practice. Often by persisting to let go of the negativity it is then that suffering feeling will slowly disappear and one will begin to be able to perhaps “enjoy” the practice rather than “suffer” and this will take one to the deeper realization of the Truth that we are the Creator of our own State of Mind.
