Mind of a self-realized soul is a mindless mind – Mata Amritanandamayi

The mind of a self-realized soul is a mindless mind. It is expansiveness.

A self-realized soul uses the mind for interacting with the world. However, there is a big difference between the common human mind, which is full of various thoughts, and the mind of a self-realized soul. Self-realized souls us the mind, we are used by the mind. They are not calculative, but spontaneous. Spontaneity is the nature of the heart. A person who is overly identified with the mind cannot be spontaneous.

There are plenty of occasions when people identify with the heart and its positive feelings. When people are kind, compassionate and considerate of others, they dwell more in their heart than in their mind. But they are not always able to behave like that. So more often people are identified with the mind because it is more powerful.

In order to remain attuned with the positive feelings of the heart, you should strengthen your connection with the silence of your spiritual heart and weaken your connection with the disturbances of your noisy mind.
