Development of Self Through Development of Mind and Voice

Oct 18, 2007
The discovery of self is one of the most crucial aspects of an individual's life. This is because self refers to an individual's consciousness. And how the person perceives the world around him, moreover, it plays an important role in the development of an individual's life. The development can be in the form of self-perception, self-awareness and self-identity.

Also, the self-development embraces the development of one's competence and potentials. Moreover, the processes of self-development are ordered and widens with the realization of one's potency and limitations. This advancement is incessant aiming at the capitalizing on strengths and play down on weakness and helping an individual realize his potential.

The theory of self-development is also well defined in the words of Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis. He gave the theory relating to the working and development of a human mind and stated that our mind is divided into three parts namely, consciousness, sub consciousness and unconsciousness. Consciousness is what we think, feel or do through our conscious mind.

Every individual has the ability to react, but it depends on the person to person as each individual react differently to the same situations or the same individual may react in a different way in the same circumstances. This ability is a precursor of consciousness. Whereas sub consciousness may be defined as thoughts which operate or exist out of the conscious mind? Sometimes despite our hard and sincere efforts, thoughts keep creeping in our mind of jealousy, anger and covetousness.

All these are a part of our subconscious mind. However, unconsciousness refers to the trouncing of consciousness and an individual in this phase fails to react to the stimuli. During unconsciousness, the working of mind cannot be controlled, as there is free flow of thoughts, which no matter how much the person tries hard, fails to do so.

But one thing, which is in the hands of the personage, is that he or she can try and keep the negative and impure thoughts. Feelings like hatred, lust, envy, sloth and gluttony can be ceased with the practice of meditation, yoga, selfless work and devotion. These practices help in pouring clean and health thoughts relating to God, self-sacrifice and Philanthropy. This in turn helps in the process of self-development, which makes a better human out of a being.

However, the process of self-development is not easy as even if you clear your conscious mind of all the down beating thoughts. This is because it is more related with our sub conscious mind and it takes a considerable amount of hard work and time to make your subconscious mind free from the dirt, which has been dwelling since many years.

Endurance and firmness are the pre-requisite, which one needs, as it is not a day or two processes. During the process of development of mind, one has to feel many negative effects also. However, one does not have a fret as these are temporary and can be resolved with the aid of an instructor, friends and spiritual groups.

If one is trained at knowing the working of his or her mind, not only will the personality and the mindset of the people improve but also the process of self-development will be initiated at a faster rate.

Undoubtedly, the process of mind development is the key to self-development as it ensure the all round development of an individual's personage making him compatible to both the personal and professional life. The person who become aware of the self-development, he or she can easily attain success and positive outlook towards life.
