The MIND: 🏺 VESSEL OR FIRE 🔥

What is the MIND?

The mind is a set of cognitive faculties including consciousness, imagination, perception, thinking, judgment, language, and memory, which is housed in the brain. (according to Wiki).

It just like a memory processor or the storage space in our mobiles which is limited but the mind has unlimited storage.


What is a 🏺 vessel than?


A hollow container especially one used to hold liquid or any other stuff in limited quantity.

What is 🔥Fire than?


And fire is what is totally uncontrollable & limitless.

So what if our mind becomes a 🔥fire 🔥



which would be limitless in thinking. If it becomes a vessel then that thing is to be concerned because when something is collected in the vessel for more period it is harmful just like percolated water becomes breed to mosquitoes. Similarly stored useless thought in mind are too harmful.

When something is burnt we get energy out of it. Similarly, if our mind is kindled then new energy would come out of us & its truly golden.

The correct analogy for the mind is not a vessel but fire which is to be kindled & then it motivates one towards originality and insert desire of goal. Suppose someone asks his neighbor for fire & finds a substantial blaze there & just stays there continually warming himself, that’s no different from someone who goes to someone else to get to some of his rationality and fails to realize that he ought to ignite his own flame, his own intellect, but is happy to sit entranced by lecture and words triggering only associative thinking and bring as it were only flush to his cheeks & glow to his limbs but he has not dispersed in the warm light of philosophy, the internal dark gloom of his mind.

The human brain is one of the most powerful weapons to fight against the difficulties in life. The person whose mind is kindled would be the greatest personality rather whose it like a vessel. There are many examples such as Valmiki Rushi who wrote the Greatest EPIC RAMAYANA. He was an evil person before then after meeting Naradha he understood the true meaning of life & 🔥fired his mind & wrote up RAMAYANA even before it took place.

Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam our missile man was from a poor family & used to distribute newspapers but he was well focused & achieved the greatest success for our Nation its result of fired mind. He also wrote one book named Ignited Mind which truly 🔥ignites🔥 the mind. The mind has the power to make the illusion a reality. Any dream that can be achieved just the thing need is strong determination.


If we take the convex lens and a piece of paper with the help of sunlight the paper can be burnt. The question is how? If convex in placed between sunlight and paper, the convex lens brings the parallel rays of the sun together and focuses on paper which is burnt. Two parallel lines never meet each other but the convex lens makes it possible. In the same way, we should be the convex lens and focus on our aim & kindle our mind to achieve it.

For burning anything the essential thing is air(oxygen) without which we can’t burn fire. Similarly for igniting our mind we too need the oxygen of hard work, focus, perseverance. There is also the thing that extinguishes fire like water, carbon dioxide. Our ignited mind can also be extinguished by our laziness & bad habits but it lies in our hand that we allow our mind to be kindled or be extinguished. In this manner science too support the fact that mind is meant to be kindled.

So let’s 🔥ignite🔥 our mind and support the development of our society, Nation, and global humanity.
