The Mind and Its Elements

Mind (Manas) is composed of some core elements, which are Universal. Since Mind of all Individuals share this core design, we can call it the Mind’s Collective Consciousness. In Digital Language, Mind specifications are at factory settings, initially!

What are these Core (Universal) Settings?

INSTINCT defined as a native force that causes a person to behave or express from their base intelligence.

TRAIT is defined as the specific or unique distinguishing Quality.

IMPULSE is abrupt expression of behavior or action without plan or forethinking arising from ingrained habits or assumptions.

TEMPER means a disposition (intrinsically organized state of Mind).

MOOD is the prevailing calibrated state of emotion or feelings.

AFFECTION is the impact that the emotion or feelings creates on others. 

DESIRE is a strong wish or feeling that transforms emotions to physical behavior.

MOTIVATION is the behavioral byproduct of Desire or Instinct. It has three parts – effort, direction, and persistence.

TALENT is innate aptitude for a specific skill.

CONDITION is the perception of mind after exposure and evaluation by reason.

Do ‘I’ (Swayam) know my Mind? How well do I know my Mind? Is my Awareness, Mindful or Mindless? What happens to my Mind after experience of Society and World? How does Memory modify the core settings of Mind? Why does my Awareness split? Am I able to protect my Mind from Social Engineering? Is my Mind a product of Inner Engineering? Do I have Faith in my own Mind Talks?

Amused, I Seek!

  1. Till date, I have been thinking that many of the terms referred to in the article means the same. A point to ponder upon “Does too much of I(Swayam) thoughts lead to Ego(Ahankara)?”.

    • There is a difference between Swayam (Self) and Aham (Ego). This will be covered in an upcoming post. Alignment with Swayam, elevates us above our Individual Ego.
