A no mind state is a state of no thought. Before you come to a state of no thought, you must learn how to keep your attention away from your thought. When a thought has lost its attention, it will stop disturbing you as time go by.
A no mind state become purely being. By just being with no thought and judgment, this will help to open up your mind to a clearer and bigger picture.
Your awareness and mindfulness will increase. You will feel more calm, peace and at ease. Because you are able to see the beautiful side of the world finally.
How To Become More Mindful
Some people might question at no mind state, how can it turn out to become more mindful? Because when you are at a no mind state, your mind is no more clouded with thought. Therefore, you can have a clearer mind and become more aware of what is going on inside you and around you.
Thought in you mind will create a blockage between you and the world. This is where separation being form. You can put this thought like a cloud. When the sun in the sky is covered by the cloud, you don’t see the sun, you see the cloud only.
But that doesn’t mean the sun is not there. It’s there, you just don’t see it. When your cloud (thought) is removed, you see the beautiful sun finally, you manage to see the beautiful side of the world around you.
You have a clearer mind to see a bigger picture. Just like you able to see the full sun in the whole sky now. You are able to see the beautiful world around you. It actually all along is there, you just don’t see it, just like you don’t see the sun behind the cloud.
You become aware of the surrounding lives – the trees, the plants, the flowers, the butterflies, the birds, etc. You can feel the lives in them. Some people might ask how to feel? Just focus on your heart and feel them and keep at no mind state. Everyday practice it, you can feel them.
Do you know that our heart can generate out a high vibration energy? Therefore, it can sense the surrounding energy. This explain why some people can sense something feel good or uneasy when they are at certain place.

How To Use Your Mind
Some people might ask is it mean that our mind is useless? Is it a problem maker? NO! The mind is useful when you use it in the right way and right time. It’s a useful tool. You need the mind when you need to work, to do thing, to solve problem, to do self inquiry.
But the problem with most of the people with the mind is they have problem quiet the mind when they don’t need it or they have used it in the wrong way.
The problem is not the knife or mind because they are just tools. The problem is the user. Okay, I know some of you might have problem getting it.
Let go deeper into it and we can put it this way. We are the user of our mind (tool) to decide how we are going to use the knife (another tool).
Can you see the picture of it now? Both the mind and knife are just tools. The main character is YOU, the user. Have you ever question yourself who am I?
When you identify yourself are the body, the mind, that is where you have lost yourself because the body and mind are just tools, they are not YOU. Then where am I? Who am I? This is what self-inquiry is about. You ask question to yourself using your mind, but you don’t try to get the answer by using your mind to think of an answer.
You have to do self-inquiry with a no mind state when you are in seeking for an answer. You won’t get the right answer here by using your mind to think.
Self-inquiry is another deep topic which I shall not continue here. My purpose is just to explain to you when to use the mind to think at the right place. We shall just focus on the topic of mind here.
You Are Not Your Mind
Some people might be asking how to stop the mind because their mind has gone out of their control.
There is a reason why you have lost control of your own mind and you can’t stop your thought now. Because you have identified yourself with too many things with your mind.
As long as you don’t realize that you are not your mind, you will keep putting on more identification to yourself with your non-stop mind.
It’s because of all these identifications you have put on yourself that keep you believe that you are the mind.
It’s impossible to completely stop your thought immediately now. It’s like a fan spinning fast and you cannot expect it to stop immediately with the power off. It will take a while to completely come to a stop after the power is off.
You have to stop giving attention to your chatter mind now by keeping a distance away from it. It will lose it power and stop disturbing you slowly as time go by.
Hereby, I would like to share a video by Sadhguru who has explained on how can the mind be quiet. Please enjoy.
