Releasing From Mental Prisons (Part 3)

by Patrick Liew on October 2, 2011

The solution for releasing myself from the mind comes also from the mind.

Our Creator has designed our mind to have a tremendous power for capturing information and analyzing them. It has the ability to reason things and create a perpetual flow of ideas and concepts.

While it is one of the most powerful tools, it is unfortunate that it is sometimes one of the least used tools in life.

My mind is designed to be solution-focused. If I pose the right question to it, it will act like a compass to point me to the right direction in life.

There are four key questions that can help to release me from the prison of my mind.

1.       Reasoning Question

Why is this experience not personal, perpetual, universal and terminal?

This experience does not have to affect me negatively and on a personal level.

The negative results do not have to be permanent.

I have a choice not to allow it to affect other areas of my life. I can respond to it.

2.       Option Questions

What are the causes for this challenge and options to resolve them?

When I explore the ways to turn challenges into positive experiences, there are literally infinite amount of possibilities, including burying the challenge under the sands of time.

I can also forget the negative emotions from my life and replace them with positive ones.

3.       Feedback Question

What lessons can I learn from this experience that I can use to improve myself?

Everything happens for a reason and a purpose. If I seek to uncover the significance of these experiences, I can find meaning and wisdom in them.

These experiences can help me to find satisfaction and fulfillment in life.

4.       Benefit Question

How can I benefit from this experience?

When I review the frailties, faults, follies, foolishness and failures in my life, I discovered I can derive many advantages, benefits, and values from them.

These powerful lessons can help me to be a better person and to live a better life.


Please take time to ask yourself these four questions.

When you do that, you will uncover gems from the mines of your mind.

They will not only free you from the prison of your mind, but they will also turn your prison into a paradise of opportunities and possibilities for an awesome future.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
