Doubt – Your Worst Enemy or Your Best Friend in
Finding the True Path
In order to meaningfully discuss this, several points need to be addressed and clarified:
The Doubt of the Egoic, Rational Mind
For the average person who has not yet achieved mastery (that state in which one has the option of silencing the dialogue within the mind), the tyranny of the egoic, or surface mind, is a real adversary in finding the true path. The bodies of man are stacked around the physical body like Russian dolls. The fourth body is the mental body. As the tyranny of surface mind fights to control the person’s life at all costs, the mental body, which is maintained by surface mind, blocks out influences
from higher bodies.
The spirit body cannot provide the fluid perception needed to
access higher truth. The spiritual mental body cannot supply effortless
knowing, which is the seat of genius. The spiritual emotional body
cannot provide the energy supply the states of higher consciousness
Energy is inextricably connected with the achieving of higher consciousness. Full awareness requires that we access many different levels of information at the same time, the subtle as well as the obvious. It requires energy to do this. All energy initially gets used by the incessant ramblings and activity of the left-brain and surface mind. Only the surplus goes to the right brain, which interprets the feeling of the heart as non-cognitive information.
The majority of life, like an iceberg, lies beneath the surface. Life’s most exquisite kingdoms, deepest secrets and most profound revelations are beyond the reach of the surface mind. Thus the person with a dialogue in his mind gets trapped in a prison cell of his own making, forged by his own belief systems.
Although he says he searches for truth, he often searches only for that which confirms his already held belief systems, thereby making his prison bars thicker and thicker. In this case, anything that challenges the comfort zone of the familiar cell is assailed with doubt and attacked with logic. Mind will only accept what it can control. It will attack, ridicule or ignore anything that threatens to unseat its petty tyranny.
