Top 3 Ultimate Ways to Open Beyond the Ego of Small Mind
So I am going to share with you 3 ways to open the self-concern or ego of small mind. Great, Most of the time, we are stuck up in that we can be called it “small mind”.
The small world of self-concern that is ego, of wanting to get what we want and avoid what we don’t want.
This is the cause of our suffering.
Always running to distraction, procrastinating, caught up in worries and fears.
Worried about what people think of us, what we’re missing, what someone did to offend us, and so on.
It’s a small world we get trapped in, this worrying about ourselves all the time.
And it leads to stress, depression, hurt, anger, worry, fear, anxiety and distraction and lots of mental diseases takes birth in our mind.
The one and only antidote is Vast Mind.
Growing bigger than the small mind, we have habitually become stuck in.
Now Question Arises That:
What is Vast Mind?
It’s opening to something bigger than our self-concern that is egoism, opening to the freshness of the moment.
Let’s me imagine to you that there’s someone whose family member has said something insulting to them.
They immediately get caught up in small mind, thinking about how they don’t deserve to be treated this way.
That they’re a good person and this person is always being inconsiderate.
They are worried about themselves, and their world is very small and constricted.
What if instead, this person dropped their self-concern or ego that is comes in small mind.
And opened their awareness to something wider than themselves.
The experienced that moment as pure experience, and suddenly everything is open and vast.
They relax into this openness.
People might notice that this other person, whom they love, is suffering in some way.
They send this person compassion, and feel love for the person and this moment.
That’s the difference between small, constricted mind that’s full of suffering.
And vast mind that’s open, fresh, unbounded, and full of love and happiness as well.
You don’t have to take my word for it.
Here are three practices for growing from small mind to vast mind. Or,

2nd Practice: Radical Not-Knowing Beyond the Ego

We don’t pay too much attention to this moment, because it’s boring to pay attention to the breath, body sensations, the sensations of everything around us.
Because we already know all about that!
But in fact, every moment is completely fresh, completely open, full of new possibilities to explore.
And it will be your perfect positive attitude that can change your life forever.
When we get stuck in small mind, we are in a narrow, constricted view of the world.
And it’s a hardened view — I know what I want and I just want to get it.
I know what I don’t like and I want to avoid it. It’s the hardened view of fundamental logic.
The practice of radical not-knowing is to act as if you’ve never experienced this before.
Everything is completely new to you, with no preconceptions or labels.
From when you start realizing yourself like above, the world becomes a adventure place for you and you just start living not worrying.

There are no names for anything, just the pure experience.
Try walking around like that for a few minutes, and see what it’s like.

What happens is that we become much more open to the vastness of experience.
There is no, “I want this” or “I don’t want that.” It’s just, “This is the experience I’m having right now.”
This is pure boundless awareness, and it is vast.
3rd Practice: Devotion to Others Beyond The Ego Of Small Mind
When I notice that I’ve gotten caught up in my small mind, I try to think of people other than myself.

The love I have for my family is so much bigger than my small wants.
