Sometimes we grow suspicious of social institutions, like education, religion, careers, and media. We accuse these realms of giving us the experience of feeling “brainwashed.”
Your mind is given to you so you can never be brainwashed.
Every day, every hour, every moment, feel empowered to check in with the elements that make up your human organism and all things: ether, air, fire, water, and earth.
Your mind is given to you to balance the amount of ether, air, fire, water, and earth that you are experiencing in any given moment, in any given circumstance.
Relating to the universe through your consciousness means becoming aware of the balance of the five elements that make up YOU.
Ether: Check the quality of the space in which you exist. Is that space giving you room to grow and glow?
Air: Check the quality of your thoughts and your life force energy. Do you have thoughts of high or low frequency? Do you feel you have plenty of energy to give and love and serve?
Fire: Check the quality of your digestion and lifeblood. Do you feel at ease moving food through your system? Are you aware of your blood’s circulation and its oxygen content?
Water: Check the flow of your emotions and impressions. Do you feel emotions flow easily through you giving you a rich human experience, but do not get blocked in your body or mind to create whirlpools of neurosis?
Earth: Check in with your relationship to the Earth. Do you feel rooted and grounded? Have your hands helped in the garden? Have your toes felt the grass or the sand? Have you savored the sensations of nature in your face and cold in your bones?
If all five of the elements are balanced in your own human organism, nothing can penetrate you to the point of brainwashing you. And you will no longer feel the need to use brainwashing as an excused to claim you are a victim.
The mind is your responsibility, and you have all the power in the universe to use your mind to become balanced, empowered, and liberated. Be careful not to waste energy on emotionally-driven complaints of being brainwashed. Instead, feel empowered to relate to your mind through your awareness.
