There is an inherent law in everything, what is happening around us. We have been studying physics and chemistry, the material Universe follows its own laws. Each and every action and reaction in this physical world are guided by certain law, principles and formulas. There is not a single evidence that nature has deviated from the law. When nature is in order it gives us calmness, peace and happiness and disorderliness creates havoc, calamities, pain and illness.
Similarly, an orderly human system gives happiness and peace and disorderliness makes the world hell. And it all erupts in the mind. A mind in proper order enjoys, keeps the self and the surrounding in order. A disturbed mind creates chaos and confusion, it disrupts the system in a negative direction. We need to regulate our thoughts, we need to give a pause to them to direct them in the proper direction. Meditation, introspection or mindfulness are the useful techniques to train and to tame the mind to think clearly and positively. There will be a rush of thoughts, the mind may be impulsive or impatient. We need to hold it and regulate it in the proper direction.
There are distracting factors such as hedonism and fantasy. Physical pleasure and fantasy may offer temporary relaxation to the mind but it will make the mind hazy and heavy. The polluted mind is the cause of negative actions, it becomes complex, confused and convicted. In the present time the mind needs agility and accuracy. As we follow the traffic rules like – one way driving, various turns, signals at crucial points and stoppages which help to prevent chaos on roads. Thinking too much, allowing our thoughts to go wild without any direction and restriction, leads to chaos. It needs conviction and self-restraints to keep the mind on track. It needs discipline and love to keep the mind on track. Mind is just like a small kid it needs care, love and direction to grow and enrich.
Perception plays an important role, the thought process can make things either simpler or complicated. So the practice of traffic control, keeping a pause and checking on the thoughts for one or two minutes every one hour is important. The process sharpens our thought process to make life more efficient and effective. These one or two minutes of pause saves a lot of time in terms of wastages and inefficiency.
There is a thought behind every action and some of the thoughts are impulsive, if one wants to correct the action and consequence one should correct one’s thought. The mind keeps on switching from one thought to another consciously or unconsciously. As if the thoughts are the driver of the “car”, the “life”. The driver should be properly trained and incentivised. It is the vehicle of thought that leads your life to different destiny. Crux trains your thoughts through “Traffic Control”.
