If you read spiritual texts or listen to spiritual talks, you might have heard the warnings against getting identified with the mind. But what does it really mean to be identified with the mind?
When a thought arises in us, in some cases, we have a choice whether to follow the thought/emotion or not, but in a lot of cases, we don’t. For instance, if the day is cloudy/rainy, it affects the mood of majority of us. All our actions and decisions on that day are affected by the weather. But, a few of us can see through and probably try to take decisions and actions irrespective of the weather outside.
