Powerful mind: Throw your reactive mind away

A person, who can be hurt by others, is dangerous to the peaceful of this world. If you can not be hurt by external factors, you would not hurt anybody. Powerful mind is not an attacking mind; not a protective one; It is peaceful one.

How we are reacting to the situations comes from external factors? Whenever we are facing a new situation or new task, we have a habit of giving some judgment such as it is comfortable for us or not, good or bad… etc. That judgment is your reaction about that particular situation. How this judgment affects your mind?
If you think that situation is good, then your mind will be addicted to that external factor which causes that situation (Ex. Smoking, games, alcohol). Your level of addiction depends on how much you like the situation. Like that, if you think that situation is bad, then your mind will be hurt (financial crisis, periods of job searching…etc)

How can we stop the reactions?
Only solution to stop your reactions is realization. You should realize the judgments are made of your past experience. You should be aware while making that judgment. Is it possible to delay the judgment? If it is possible, then you can stop reacting to external factors. Then you will see the tough tasks ahead of you in new dimension.
