First of all, I am now fully cured, so no worries on that score. But life was hell when I was mired in the condition. It took me a lot of research and treatment by specialists for me to emerge from it. I was not cured overnight… it took quite a while, and I don’t even want to tell you how long that was. But the great thing is that the cure has been 100% effective for me and will be for you, too.
I used to be so anxious that I would have fits of retching. My stomach was in a tight knot most of the time and exploding every time it got too tight. Because my mind and body were in such a shambles I also avoided interacting with people. And because I cut myself off like this, I stewed more in my own broth. Something was very, very wrong with me and I didn’t know what.
I kept thinking, “When I lay down to die, I don’t want to be thinking I missed out on life because I was distracted with anxiety the whole time.” I realized that in a way, my entire life was at stake. I vowed to save my life and swore to myself I would leave no stone unturned doing it.
I consulted several experts in sequence and one of them diagnosed me as having CM. You might have it and not even know it, and it could be stressing you out.
So what the heck is CM?
CM is Cosmic Myopia. Myopia is the clinical term for short sight, which means you see things near you clearly but don’t see things far off so well.
Cosmic Myopia is a condition where your mental vision is limited to your own sphere of existence and not beyond. You spend your life oblivious of the mind-bogglingly large universe in of which you are a microscopic part. You never stop to think that you are just another piece of the Universe, made out of the same material as the Universe’s 100 billion galaxies with upto a trillion stars in each of them.
And don’t you DARE say that there is no mind in the rest of the Universe, so therefore you’re NOT made out of the same stuff as the rest of the Universe. It is obvious to me that amongst the billions of trillions of stars it is statistically impossible for only lil’ ole earth to have beings that have minds. Mind is just another one of the myriad objects that exist in the Universe, like rocks, water, helium, plants, animals, electromagnetic fields, light and who knows what else will become evident as science progresses.
The cure for CM is to realize that you are just another object in the Universe, made out of the same material as the other objects. As a matter of fact, the basic ‘you’ is the material, and not the mind and body that you identify with so much.
Your mind is the ‘sound’ your brain makes, just like chirping is the sound a bird makes. You are the one who’s aware of your mind, and you’re aware of it just like you’re aware of the chirping of a bird. The mind is not YOU. It’s your brain talking. STOP INDENTIFYING WITH YOUR MIND. Watch it instead, just like you would watch a movie.
That’s what I started doing, and now I am anxiety-free. I keep trying to realize I’m the ‘guy who is aware of the mind’ and man, what a peaceful being HE is! He has no agitation or anxiety at all, since those are activities of the mind, not of him (or ‘it’, since once you experience what I’m talking about, you will understand that the being that is aware of the mind has no gender).
So cure yourself of CM. Sit down and try to find that peaceful being that is aware of your mind.
Here’s a magic tip to get there: Every time you think something, try to find the answer to the question, “To whom did that thought occur?”
That tip works like dynamite. And I’m saying this because I regularly use it myself.
So get going on your journey of self-discovery. It also leads to unshakeable happiness. And check back to this blog now and then for more great tips on how to get rid of your CM once and for all!
Have a great life,
