The contents of our vessel determines
how safe and secure we are.

Thought being fragmented, incomplete and insecure attempts to fulfill itself by accumulating physical and mental possessions. It is so busy trying to satisfy its insatiable appetite that it is unaware that it is attracting everything it does not want. For example, the more it accumulates, the more fearful it becomes of losing what it has accumulated. In attempt to free itself of its fear, it accumulates even more. In turn, it becomes more fearful. That causes it to be frustrated, anxious, angry, and eventually violent.

The contents of our mind define our vessel, our reality and everything we experience. Unaware that everything is mirrored, thought perceives that what it sees and experiences is separate from it. It is unable to see that the vessel and its contents are one and the same. We are the anger, fear and discontent that we either attack or attempt to avoid. Our emotions, discontent and behavior are just as much a part of us as our internal organs are.

Like the body, our mind is designed to return everything it processes into the environment. Being the processor, we are the only one who can put anything into our vessel and we are the only one who can eliminate anything in it.

People as well as our environment stimulate what is contained within our vessel. Society, our environment and what we experience in life mirrors our consciousness. Everything changes as our consciousness changes for it is created by our consciousness. Accepting the reality of our situation creates closure. Closure allows us to empty our vessel, raise our consciousness and to be free of fear.
