Mental Competency in Propensity to Self-Subversion Self-subversion is the mechanism that helps us to know our mind’s capabilities. How many of us have really stopped to know what goes in our minds? Is it not important for us to know what is happening within a mystical part of us that controls our senses and behavior? Understanding our mind will lead to us to many unanswered questions like why we do a particular thing or why we avoid something or why we react in the way we do and so on. The answers to these questions will help us to transform into better human beings. We are influenced by external as well as internal events. The internal events can be our past experiences while the external events are those that are happening in the world around us. They have an impact on our thoughts and behavior. It also subconsciously affects our emotional balance. We become agitated and disturbed for the so-called insignificant things. We say and do things that we repent and regret later. This is because we have not addressed the root cause of our emotional disturbance. Emotional balance and tranquility is of utmost importance to every human being today. With so many irrational acts happening around us, it also becomes imperative that we give it the importance that is due. Many crimes happen due to emotional instability of people. They are unable to decide what is good and what is bad for them. They let external forces take over their minds. This emotional instability is due to the lack of knowledge about their mental health. If they can predict that their reaction to an event is going to be unpleasant, then they can avoid that event altogether. We have to take steps to understand our mind. We have to address the emotional questions and fears that plague us. We must agree that the issues we face today are based on cause and effect, sources and consequences. By analyzing and understanding the root cause of these fears and questions, we can have a better grip over ourselves. In order to overcome a problem, we have to dig deep down to know the cause and the effect it has on us. We can know this by concentrating on our inner-self. Meditation is one of the techniques for achieving this. It helps to focus all our attention on a single object or thought. This will provide us with an opportunity to do a lot of self-introspection. We can gauge our emotional levels and attachments. Once we know our problems, we can steps to tackle them. We have to make determined efforts to overcome them. In due course of time and with persistence, we can mould ourselves into better individuals. Our past experiences will throw a lot of light in our emotional growth. Spending a little time everyday to think and scrutinize our actions and reactions in the past will help us to achieve a higher degree of emotional balance and tranquility. As our emotional balance increases, we will be in a better position to handle all the negative and unpleasant events that happen around us. We can decide what events should get to us and what should be filtered. That way we can shut out all the negative forces that influence us from our life. This will lead to self-reliance and self-confidence. We can stop negative external forces like violence, crime, abuse, racism, war, poverty and others from influencing us in any way. When we are self-reliant and confident, we can motivate others to join us. When each person consciously strives towards emotional stability and self-reliance, the world will be a happier place to live.
