the three functional minds

About Mind

“If we can master the use and command of the mind, we can enjoy this world and live truthfully, gracefully, and prosperously.”

How do the three gunas, the five tattvas and the three functional minds along with the universal minds function together to create our reality? And how do we learn to discern and interpret that reality?

In Gurmukh + Gurushabd’s Mind and Meditation training you will learn to recognise and distinguish between the three minds, how to direct the mind’s varying attributes, giving you a greater capacity for happiness and a deeper comprehension of your own internal flow of energy.

Negative, Positive & Neutral

Known as the Functional Minds, the three minds are the primary way that the mind processes thoughts and makes decisions. Whether conscious or driven blindly by the subconscious, the three minds work to make decisions. The more you become aware of the process – how the three Functional Minds work – the more you can integrate the observer into that process, the more power and authority you can bring to the ‘you’ within the ‘I’.

Whichever mind you are representing – Negative, Positive, or Neutral – you comment from that position. There are three functional aspects to the mind:

The Negative (or Protective) Mind is given for survival. It is reactive, protective, and searches for potential danger. It is sensitive to pain, and it shields you from the forces that may disrupt or destroy.

The Positive (or Expansive) Mind searches for pleasure, fulfilment, and possibility in how you can utilize things in your experience. It is constructive, risk taking, and active.

The Neutral (or Meditative) Mind is the mind that judges and assesses without attachment in relation to your own purpose and reality. The Neutral Mind observes the actions of both the Negative and Positive Mind, and judges both in relationship to your higher self.

Each thought is filtered through the Negative, the Positive, and the Neutral minds. These aspects of the mind are developed differently in each individual. Some people have a stronger Negative Mind, or a stronger Positive Mind, or a stronger Neutral Mind. Occasionally, all three are strong, existing in balance. This is the enlightened mind. It is flexible and creative, and able to reflect the uniqueness of the soul.

Patarvali’s Eight Limbs the Three Minds

—  The Negative Mind is mastered with yamas and niyamas.

—  The Positive Mind is mastered with asanas and pranayama.

—  The Neutral Mind is mastered with pratyahar, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi.

The meditative mind is the neutral mind that runs your destiny. There are three ways to conduct your destiny: Through the law of karma-action and reaction: you can tune into the magnetic field of the Earth and just float with it as a freeloader: or, your life can be run by that magnetic, attractive, creative, meditative, Neutral Mind, That way you do very well. – YOGI BHAJAN
