The moment you open your garbage bin and start using it for anything but waste storage then you are in trouble.
The mind is like a garbage bin and it is full of all information you collect on a daily basis. From the day you were born it has been filled subconsciously with impression’s, views and thoughts all based on particular points in time. This storing of rubbish has no validity to you at all, other than to try protect your identity… Your ego… You will find that the mind is very clever when it comes to recycling. It uses this past information to add value to the present moment.. And in turn it tries to sway your future outcome. All the mind is doing is protecting itself, it is protecting its identity, the ego is trying to remain intact. When the ego is threatened it will do whatever it can to keep you oscillating between past and future, between recycling and polluting….
Only when you discover the difference between mind, pain-body, self and supreme self will you slowly discover the rubbish the mind has been creating. Only then will you find ways to work on clearing your mind and living in the present.
