Maria Duval - Clearing Your Mind

Maria Duval - Clearing Your MindMaria Duval asks, what is the mind? She says the mind is everything connected to your intellectual faculties and psychological functions. To experience the power of knowledge, we have to "clear our minds".

What does this knowledge refer to? It is the knowledge of yourself, which means discovering your real personality, your true "self", the self that lies beneath the veneer of educational, cultural and social conditioning.

Maria Duval assures that this "authentic personality" is well worth discovering. Greek master Socrates said:

"Know yourself through yourself!"

In other words, "clearing your mind" means clearing your head of all its "mental chatter", its "internal dialog", to see what is really inside.

The true "Self" is part of the individual which is governed by instinct, the part that tends to remain hidden, appearing rarely or never at all. It is a part of the individual that belongs to their life history, their own particulars and entirely personal experience of the life cycle - birth, childhood, puberty, maturity and death.
