In these times of sudden change and uncertainty, the mind can play havoc with one’s level of anxiety and fear. As I’ve written before, I know a few things when it comes to mind, meditation, and flow states. Human beings are unusual creatures, in that they have not only cognition, but meta-cognition.
It is not just that I know, it is that I also know that I know. And this self-reinforcing loop can cause a great deal of problems with the normal functioning of day to day life. For instance, worry is a symptom of this problem – of knowing something – otherwise there wouldn’t be any worry.
However, having recognized the problem worth worrying about, why does the mind worry?
“What will happen to me?”anxious minds
Our human minds have evolved from prehistoric times to deal with environmental hazards and the like. This is normal, as back in those days these often meant physical harm and even painful death. It made sense for a shoot-first, ask-questions-later approach to life.
Modern human society, however, has much less of this to deal with. Yet, our mental wellness is incredibly poor. As a people, we are more stressed, anxious, and depressed than ever before. This was already happening before coronavirus, the question is even more pressing now: when we have more safety as a general human race, why are our minds such more more worse off?
COVID-19 has done many things to our lives, chief among them is that it has turned social creatures into homebound ones. The world has never had to turn towards digital means of communication so quickly, so thoroughly, all across the planet.
And with this digital-first and digital-more world comes even more isolation, and with more isolation, the chatter of the mind often becomes unbearable. Who has not wanted distractions and friends and outings to just think about something else, anything else?
Everyone is meditating these days, even though most do not know what it really is.
Without understanding mind, how to understand no mind?
Meditation is not just for the yogi, but without working with the mind, there can be no progress.
