The Trouble With Your Mind


For, basically, the trouble with my mind is the conviction I've got one; and returning it to store (to the Universe at large or, in Zen terms, to 'Great Space' or the 'One Mind') is enough to set it in order. Clearing up my psychological problems is clearing away my psychology - this imaginary tangle of thoughts and feelings all torn from what they are thoughts and feelings about, and collected together here and shut up in a tiny bone box - the biggest colony of bats in the smallest of belfries. While I'm seeing What I really am as 1st Person I'm clear-headed and clear-minded and clear of body and mind at all levels, with their attendant problems. And while I'm not seeing this I have plenty of problems, all of which are reducible to the problem of this morbid growth called brain/head/mind, this malignancy flourishing right here at the mid-point of my universe. To say that this wen-like cancer gets in my way and blocks my light is an understatement. It maddens me, and not less so for being quite imaginary. This isn't so much having mental trouble as gratuitously making trouble for myself, at the one Spot which needs to be trouble-free - and manifestly is trouble free, whenever I attend to it. Enlightenment, which is shining the light steadily upon this obstructionless Spot, isn't something I can manage without. (The Science of the 1st Person, Douglas Harding.)
