Objects of the mind are like the fish in the Infinite Ocean of Love. Would anyone choose the fish over the Ocean?
It is not that the fish are bad, or unnecessary. Fish can also be stunningly beautiful. They are all a part of the Ocean. Yet, the Ocean can exist without them, but not they without the Ocean.
Each fish points back to the Ocean. Seeing the fish, we also see the Ocean. If we look close enough.
The Ocean is everything.
Use objects of the mind as pointings to the Divine, the Infinite One. Rest in the Ocean, not in the fish.
