Every day when the Beautiful sun rises from the East and moves all the way to West, we all pass through a series of activities that mould our lives, some of these activities are so imparting that we do as they require of us without even knowing due to familiarity. This can be considered a mixed blessing because as free men and creations descendants, we have a job to do and a mission to accomplish.
We are to choose, even though we often don’t know we can. The freedom means liberty to choose. Always choose good over evil for good is good and evil is evil. There are some truth that cannot be better explained. These truths speak for themselves.
Being free is means we all have choice and no matter what you feel or think, there is no neutral choice, for he who does not chose, will do so at the end for in this life everyman must belong.
This article will help prepare us all how to control ourselves to choose; what, where and when freely with strong mind with little remorse while choosing to do well for God’s sake. This article is divided into three parts. This is part one and it seeks to reveal how to know if one’s mind is influence consciously or unconsciously.
The reader at this level will know how things enters his mind and thereby be conscious of its presence in his or her life. The reader will thereby be responsible for what enters his or her mind because at the end of this first part he will be able to choose from the multitude that life has to offer.
Part One: What Enters the Mind!
The mind is the sacred place of all men. it is the only place the truth about oneself being are kept. Even though many reject this and still prevail, the end up being imposters simply because it is against what they have inside them. If you want to tell me a story, make sure it is so convincing that I will accept it and implant it in my heart. If you can’t do so, then it was needless trying in the first place.
The mind is that force that will enable you to say YES and NO, to decide whether TO or NOT TO. Once the mind can construct it, then obviously it is attainable. If you believe, it is through your mind and if you don’t belief, it is through your mind. So handle your mind with care and chose what enters into it and definitely you would have lived a life worth living.
Be open and learn new things in your respective fields for no growth can come from an individual who is not willing to learn. We shall further talk about this under three main captions. they are as follows;
I. The Ways Through Which the Mind Intercepts Information
To understand what enters the mind, it is always good to know by what means humans beings perceives information. Biologically, humans perceive information through their five senses. They are; smell, touch, feel, sight and hear.
When these senses are fully developed a man becomes a god. He or she proves extra ordinary skills that society terms them genius, psychic, wise and what have you to add to this long list. Why people are different in behaviour, the answer are two in number. The first is Hereditary and second working hard. This is why we hear people say “Some men are born great while some achieve greatness” (be sure to understand this).
Some men are born great while some achieve greatness
A combination of these sense yield different kind of personality. Now, if you want to fashion what enters your mind, you must consider their entry points. We get lasting solutions by tackling the root cause. The root source of mind information is the senses.
After putting all into consideration we must choose now. This is the real freedom here: freedom to and not to, freedom to be or not to be.
Choose what you see, hear, touch, feel and smell. Choose which item thrills any of your senses. While thinking, it is important to remember that the nature of man as created by God is complete. It needs no thrillers no boosters no motivation, and in case any of these need to be touched, it should be touched with care.
This means that you must leave for your creator. You can do so by asking HIM questions every single day. And He will be answering them every day. Don’t just stop asking and as he answers, your mind will become free and free and you will find inner peace.
II. How Intercepted Information does Affects the Receiver
The moment one feels he has got everything under control and beliefs it is exactly as he had wanted to be, think again. How do you know the idea was implanted in your head by someone or that, it is not entirely your idea.
Since it is difficult to watch over oneself and ones activities I will recommend this experiment on children. . Children become what they see and here, what their parents promote and encourage and nothing else. The TV program they watch, the TV series they watch and the radio channel they listen to, gives the mind something to ponder about. Meditation in its simplest form is thinking about something for a long time. When you meditate over something the thing will definitely come your way be it good or bad.

Meditating about something is like praying . Keep praying until solution comes your way, for it will definitely come. When information is received by any of your senses, you have the choice to accept it or not to accept it. This decision of accepting or not is not a YES or NO matter, no sitting in the middle or on the fence.
It is about purging perceived information out of the mind and never think about or keeping it in mind and always ponder about. The latter is called Accepting while the former is called Not Accepting. Once you find yourself thinking whether to accept something or deny it, you basically are still checking your core values and may eventually accept it. Why it is believed so? The answer is simple, your values is no clear concerning what have in front of you. For if it was clear, making a decision whether to accept or not, is a matter of seconds. A simple Yes or No and the matter is closed.
It is without doubt that very little you have never taught of ever comes your way or even if it comes you may not perceive it. So, when you control what your sense perceive by being some kind of selective, the closer you become to that thing. This is also called focus and concentration. Most often, we do more with what enters our mind without knowing.
A good example is watching TV or reading a book you cherish so much repeatedly over a long period of time. You begin to talk, walk and dress, eat and even engage in businesses that you see or come across while you do all these.
III. How one can Control what Enters the Mind
Controlling the kind of information that enters the mind is the key to concentration thus focus. If one cannot say NO to something, one has by so doing said YES to it. For there is nothing like sitting on the fence between Yes and No. Another word for this state of mind is called Confusion.
To control, make values and goals that govern everything you do. For example, if in business, let it be a clear principle that you must negotiate before you engage in any transaction.
Firstly, control what you see. For the eyes is the window to the soul. As easy as it may seem, it is the most difficult one to do. By this principle, we are required to avoid books, TV programs, activities that go against our values at 100 percent. Programs that make our spirit uncomfortable. It is painful as it may mean you have to reduce time you spend with some people and spend more time with others people.
When something is against what you belief, it is needles looking at it. It is advisable to just stay away from it. You should say No and know why you say No, so that when you say Yes, you know and won’t forget the reason for the decision.
Secondly, go for what you want only and nothing else. If you want to buy a car, buy it but also remember you have to work for the money and genuinely. Anything out of this is not lawful and can be considered incorrect. If you want it, work genuinely for it.
When you have a good mastery of what enter your mind or soul as we can easily put it for believers, we can look at how to take care of the body
