CONTROLLING or mastering the mind
has nothing to do with one’s:
It WORKS according to its own set of rules.
IF it were possible to control the mind
Life would be A CAKE WALK…
very easy…VERY SIMPLE
We see the world through
our VARIOUS sense organs
and then react according to
our own inherent tendencies.
Controlling the mind does not mean
not using the sense organs.
It means utilising them WISELY…
by giving them beneficial areas to roam in.
IT CAN AND SHOULD BE DONE.
Once a young man went to
a renowned musician and
in all seriousness asked him…
“How long will it take to become
A FAMOUS MUSICIAN?
The maestro replied:
“It can be done overnight.”
Asked the amazed man… “OVERNIGHT!
How is that?
How can that be?”
The musician asserted “Yes, overnight!”
“Only…you have to practise
for twenty years before that!”
Controlling the mind is not contingent
on our outer circumstances.
It depends on INTERNAL STRENGTH
WHICH increases SURELY AND STEADILY
by constant and alert practice.
