All Is Mind
ALL IS MIND
The intention of this book is to expand on the principles of the All Is Mind model
that is available as a free PowerPoint slide show or PDF version in addition to the
recording of the one and half hour talk available on the web site,
www.davidsamuel.net all that material is free of charge.
Although I have attempted to put in as much information as possible to give an in-
depth explanation of each aspect of the Mind, the written word cannot fully express
the finest points that come up when teacher and students interact.
However due to the limitations of time and location, I hope that this book in
combination with the slide show will give you enough information to make significant
progress in mastering your Mind and life. You will understand a lot more of what is
going on and in time, perhaps, these principles will be absorbed and give you more
than you perceive at the moment.
I suggest that you forget everything you know, anything you have read or learnt,
and do not compare these concepts to previously accumulated information.
In order to work with any medium, the artist must understand its nature. Be it
wood, paint, clay, chemicals, plastic, animal training, or anything else. Understanding
how it will react to temperature, humidity, stress, cutting and any other interaction
is vital to making the end product as perfect as possible.
The human mind is one of the most difficult mediums to work with because the mind
itself has common factors to all minds. We can think we understand it, yet each
mind is so individual that one will react completely differently to another in the same
situation. All minds can be dealt with the same but only to a limited degree.
The analogy is a motorway with hundreds of lanes. Each lane has its own speed limit
and road surface, yet all go in the same direction. Before one can start the journey,
the vehicle’s limitations and abilities must be understood so the most appropriate
lane can be selected.
This book is about understanding that vehicle, the human mind and personality.
What the basic nature of the machine is, how it came to be in its current condition
and how any defects can be corrected for it to function according to its potential
rather than sputter along watching others speed by, or crash into it from behind.
When you read the first chapter, Understanding Words, it may sound interesting,
and you may feel you understand what I am saying, but only at one level. Finish
this book, take time to understand these concepts, and then read the chapter again.
You will find much greater depth to it as you will see the principles applied in the
examples. This will help your mind come to a realisation of how subtle, tricky and
truly complex the mind can be.
