Your Mind the Camera

Think of your mind as a camera. You can focus the camera wherever you choose. You can fixate on one scene. Or you can diversify, moving from scene to scene. This is something you can consciously do. If it doesn’t happen automatically, there’s no cause for alarm. This is where people go wrong. They panic because the mind doesn’t automatically shift for them, and they’re stuck in the compulsive area. They erroneously conclude, ‘I cannot control my thoughts.’ Or: “I must have ADD!” In actuality, you can shift your thoughts elsewhere, as a camera. The issue is control over your consciousness, i.e. over your mind. This is something everyone must master, as best they can, over the course of life.
