Amma "The two powers of the mind"

Amma
Found this on Facebook ,love this wonderful lady , such an example of living life full of love for all.
The words below to me are a great reminder ........ 
love and light Carol
THE TWO POWERS OF THE MIND

“The mind has two powers: the veiling power and the power of projection. First, the mind veils the true nature of a phenomenon, and then it misinterprets it. That is why Amma says that the mind is a liar. It covers the truth and makes us mistake the truth for something else."

“A man was walking alone along a village path. It was getting dark, and he was struggling to find his way in the dim light. Suddenly, something bit him in the foot. He felt the area with his hand and discovered a small wound. He could also feel that it was bleeding. He suddenly froze when he saw a snake lying coiled in a bush next
to him. He must have been bitten by the snake. The panic stricken man screamed at the top of his lungs, ‘Help! I have been bitten by a poisonous snake! I’m going to die! Please, someone come and take me to a doctor!’ The man was hysterical. He called and he called. He was now beginning to feel terribly tired and his head was spinning as if he were about to faint. He sat on the ground and continued to call for help. Within a few minutes, a man appeared out of the dark. He was carrying a torch. ‘What is the matter? What happened?’ he asked. ‘I was bitten by a poisonous snake. I am
dying. Can you take me to a doctor?’ ‘Don’t worry. Of course I will help you. But where exactly did it happen?’ asked the stranger. ‘Right here, on this very spot,’ replied the man. ‘Look at that bush. There’s a snake there!’ The stranger turned his torch towards the bush, and what did he see? A thorn bush with a piece of rope entangled in it. The stranger said, ‘Take a good look! It’s a thorn bush. A thorn must have pricked your foot. The unfortunate thing was that you simultaneously saw the rope in the dim light and mistook it for a snake. Thus you were convinced that you had been
bitten by a snake. But now that you know the truth, you can calm down.’ Once the man realized the truth, all symptoms of tiredness and dizziness disappeared, and he began to relax."

“This is how the mind plays its tricks on us. In the above example, the mind first veiled the reality of the rope and then projected the snake onto it. The snake is your past. This is what the mind does constantly. The Atman, the one Reality, is veiled and, in its stead, the world of plurality is projected. The Atman (the Self) is veiled and our thoughts are projected onto it. This deceit of the mind goes on without end. The illusion can be removed only when a true Master brings you the light of true knowledge. Then you will realize the Truth and be at peace. That is when the real awakening takes
place. Until then, the Truth will remain unclear.”

Thanks Carol, i feel Amma as a Mother embracing her children..., someone  years ago told me that my embraces are like hers, i don't know if it's true, hoping to be able to embrace her,  for one time it would be great to give back a  loving embrace to her as Mother, and she could be daughter...

I Love her and Mooji too, i feel both in my heart!

Love and Pure Light

A living saint i call Amma. You are so blessed to see her Khristina, wishing you a wonderful time in her presence.

Your welcome  Shukla. xx

Thank you...that is wonderful synchronicity. She is coming to London Alexandra Palace next week and I was contemplating going to see her. Feel the timing of your link is perfect.
I have met 2 inspiring people who have their lives beautifully transformed by her loving presence and hug. Bless you xxxK

Dear Carol,

Thanks for this post....Amma is doing a Great job for Humanity...

The mind can indeed play many tricks on us; I guess the moral of this story is to listen to the heart - there is no illusion deep within the core of our being, only the truth.
