Our mind works best in a shower

We often do things we won’t do under normal circumstances. We do this for various reasons. We do this to get recognition that we think, has been alluding us.
Our brain is the most intelligent instrument in our possession. It operates our mind. Our mind  works best when it doesn’t give instructions. It works best in a shower. It doesn’t like to follow orders, particularly if it is coming from other minds. Yet we follow orders of the other minds. It is better if we don’t know what is in store for us in the future. Yet we go to our mind to know our future. Precision makes life dead. Yet we are taught to practice precision. We don’t want to fail. Yet we fail, more often than not. We don’t want to follow advices, yet, as Nassim Nicholas Taleb says, we seek advices, so that we can blame someone else for our failures.
Mind is our greatest asset. Enslavement of the mind is one of our greatest liabilities. It is said, “Slavery begins when one ceases to feel the evil and it deepens when the evil is accepted as a good.”When this happens, real mind is replaced by a shadow mind.  An enslaved mind does great harm to us. It trains us to be fully dependent. It trains us not to produce but to borrow. It generates in us a feeling of inferiority. Some amount of enslavement is inevitable. Too much of it makes us fully enentrapped. An independent follower is as important as a dynamic leader. One can be an asset despite sometimes giving the impression of a liability. Think of it, you can’t be happy when you are always surrounded by the slaves, always eager to obey your orders. 
“Most people believe the mind to be a mirror, more or less accurately reflecting the world outside them, not realising on the contrary that the mind is itself the principal element of creation,” said Rabindranath Tagore.
