YOU ARE YOUR MIND – III

—M N Raju

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
—Buddha



Although Mind is considered as one , it is not one,  there are two. They are conscious mind and sub-conscious mind. Since both the minds do the similar function, they are called as “Mind”.

Now let us discuss further about conscious mind as our main point. We may require many more articles to talk about ‘Conscious Mind’ and about “Sub-conscious mind”. But both the minds work together  and though they are separate they work together. Is it not a wonder? That is God’s creation and God is the greatest scientist.

No two human beings have the similar mind, don’t think alike don’t talk alike, don’t do alike and everything is different and unique. Even the minds of men and women are not on the same scale – way of thinking is also different. For example:-

Man’s Mind

  • Man thinks intellectually.
  • Man thinks and comes to conclusion.
  • He arranges every thought at front door.
  • He comes home prepared and after rehearsing .
  • Man’s mind goes zig zag.
  • He tells something without base.
  • Man’s body language is not proper.
  • Woman’s Mind

  • Woman thinks intentively .
  • Woman jumps to conclusion .
  • Woman enters from the back door .
  • Woman makes him forget all that rehearsed.
  • Woman’s mind goes direct.
  • She sees all aspects of man and comes to conclusion that he is wrong.
  • Woman’s body language is perfect.

  • It is a clear experience to everyone that no two people think in the same way. Each one will have a different experience at the same point.s

    Some more differences are there between male and female. These differences are the result of their mental conditioning. The brains have evolved with different strengths, talents and abilities.

     

    Male

     

    Female

    Man developed brain as a hunter, navigator, challenger skilled worker and as a less talker.

    Woman developed brain as a house keeper, as mother, and to have all family members around her and as a more talker.

    Men prefer to sleep on the side of the door in the bed room. Women prefer the other side.

    If a new person comes home, man sees the face of the stranger and remembers.

    Woman remembers the clothes and ornaments rather than face.
    Men have XY chromosomes. Women have XX chromosomes

    It will be a male baby if Y chromosome from father and X chromosome from mother join.
    (That means the deciding factor of boy or girl will depend on the chromosome darted from father).

    It will be a female baby if X from father and X from mother join .

    Male kids talk and walk late . Female kids talk and walk earlier than boys.

    Men are direct in their talk.

    Women are indirect in their talk.

    Boys want power and status .

    Girls want relationships and co-operation.

    Boys like things like cars, guns etc.

    Girls like things like soft toys, kitchen models etc.

    Boys do not mix up with new boys in the school very easily.

    Girls mix and welcome new girls in the school.

    Boys compete.

    Girls co-operate .

    An emotional man can lash out like a reptile.

    An emotional woman prefers to talk much about it.

    If a man is unhappy at his work place, he will not maintain his relations with others.

    If a woman is unhappy at work place she cannot concentrate on her work.

    Man needs praising from others for his success.

    Woman needs expression of love by men for her success.

    Men do not cry when insulted. Men rarely cry.

    Women cry when insulted. Women cry very often.

    Men are aggressive.

    Women are adjustable.

    Boys do not like to imitate girls in dressing etc.

    Girls like to imitate boys in dressing etc.

    If any one advises a man, he does not like, and he says that he has capacity.

    If a woman is in problems, don’t offer solutions, but listen to her problem and offer solidarity .

    If a man comes home after day’s work, he expects his wife to greet him with smile.

    Woman expects a word of love or a praise for the coffee given.

    Man can do only one work at a time. If he does multiple tasks, he spoils some of them. Woman can do multiple works at a time. She can feed the infant at the dining table, concentrate on the plate of husband, try to mix coffee, and can have an eye on the stove at the same time.

    Men and women have many more differences of mental status. Each like the other. Each needs the other. They are not superior to each other. 

    As Bhagavad Gita says:-

    You are not superior
    You are not inferior
    You are not even equal
    You are you are
    You are your mind.
