VOLATILE MIND:THE MOST UNIQUE CREATION
I wonder, how difficult could be a situation when the mind remembers everything permanently whatever it sees. I don't know how it would have dealt with a situation like this where whatever we see in a whole day is saved like a Xerox copy in the mind. I know many people will argue that this is probably the best thing, which could happen to us but I think the volatile nature of mind would rather be considered the biggest gift to human beings. You may be wondering how an ability to remember all the things be bad to us? Well, the whole point is I m not only talking about the ability of mind to distinguish people or things from one another but also its special quality to remember our relations, friends and colleagues. Yes, this is truly a unique quality of our minds, which always help us remember all the people we actually know but forget the ones whom we haven't met or talked and we don't bother about them such as a stranger, whom we might have met in the shopping mall.
Probably, now you may be in a dilemma, which would have made you think again that what is so special about this quality of mind. Obviously, that is the sole fundamental on which a mind functions but what is so special about its "Volatile Nature"? Well, few days ago I also used to think in the same way but then I realized onething very different and I think this is the very reason that makes the Volatility of Mind so very much special. Ok, now lets cut the suspense short and think about a situation. The situation is you are madly and deeply in love with a person and the bad luck is- the person you love so much is cheating on you or lets say that person does not love you et al. So, what will be the normal reaction you have? I m sure you will feel hurt and you may be depressed about the whole situation, and if worst, you may go into depression and keep on thinking about that person but there is a solution to it and we all know how the solution works, its simple we try and convince ourselves that the person we love doesn't deserve our love and we try to convince ourselves that the person whom we loved so much doesn't matter to us anymore.
Once you have convinced yourself or lets say your mind and soon it triggers the real magic of its Volatile Nature, and soon after few days you will realize that you dont even remember that person or don't even bothered to think anything about that person. Yes, that healing up, which resulted from the mind's very own volatility is the most precious feature of human mind. I think due to volatility of mind, we all are able to overcome any mental road block and just flush out everything, which may hinder a person emotionally and mentally. The power to NOT remember is certainly a unique gift, the most unique creation of human mind. Indeed, I have no doubt that beyond intelligence we have a special gift in the form of our "Volatile Mind".
