The Dark Side of the Mind

“It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.” – Buddha

Wicked. Cruel. Shameful. Perverse. Dark.

Yes, there are times in our life when these adjectives can be used to describe our most private thoughts. We often gain pleasure from someone else’s sorrow, have less-than-innocent thoughts about someone, get attracted to such things which are not deemed conventionally ideal, etc. This surprisingly dark bend of our mind can result in shame, remorse, guilt, regret, etc. following such thoughts. The propensity to think in such a manner is often hidden in the deepest recesses of our mind and, therefore, provide a fascinating insight into the overall scope of our thinking capabilities.

This article explains how our mind processes these dark and wicked thoughts and takes us one step closer to solving the mystery that is our mind.
