What is the Psychology of Control?
In every meditative technique, you’re ever told, you’re told to control your thoughts. You are told to control your breathing. You are told to control your body. This is the main problem in the world. People have no idea what meditation is, why they meditate, and what meditation brings forth. They simply jump into it out of greed. All these various meditative practices, Tibeten meditation, Zen meditation, Buddhist meditation, Breathwork this, Energy healing that… and it’s ALL RUBBISH. All of it. Before getting further into it, let us discuss why we are told to control and more importantly, what is control?
Control by definition implies suppression, or exclusion, or rejection and most importantly a division. A division between the controller and the thing that is to be controlled, therefore conflict between the controller and the controlled, therefore disorder. If you understand what this is about, you will understand the Universe in whole. And what this is about, is you. Always you!
The most important thing to note here, that which escapes the notice of most people, is that the controller is the controlled. And when you realize this truth, all conflict vanishes because control vanishes. Every form of control, therefore every form of search comes to an end. When control ends, there is the ending of division between the controller and the controlled, which no longer exist as separate entities, but as one, joined together as it was the moment the Universe bore you. When the controller and the controlled are joined as one, the observer becomes the observed and the observed becomes the observer.
