Do not rely on the mind.
It leads to all kinds of trouble.
Instead, follow the path of Self.
How to tell the difference?
Self expands, mind contracts.
Self guides, mind punishes.
Self accepts, mind rejects.
Self gives, mind takes.
Self loves, mind attaches.
Self listens, mind blabbers.
Self attends to the present, mind attends to past and future.
When you privilege Self, it becomes prominent and mind recedes.
So, be more Self and less mind.
