Gentle realizations: The mind is used to investigate the mind

I am starting a series of what I am calling Gentle Realizations with this post. They are things that I come up with when I ask myself what I would like to tell my children and grandchildren concerning the important things in life and the spirit.

Some of these are paradoxes at the heart of human being. And this one is one of the most paramount.

The mind is a fundamental part of the universe. Through the use of our minds we investigate ourselves and the mind of the Creator.

When we seek God, or spiritual enlightenment, or both, we seek it with the mind. And we confront our own mind as well as that of God in that seeking. We also confront our mind in dealing with our psychological issues and in growing up to our full human potential. We can not escape mind and we must use it in order to transcend it.
