(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Martin, Slovakia, 2011)
Everyday we ask people:
“How are you? Are you all right?”
We constantly have to ask, because the mind is just like the weather – it changes all the time. In this way people are actually under the control of the mind. The mind is connected to the senses:
“Oh, what do we see? I must have it? Whatever I see, I must have.”
The eyes are connected to my mind:
“Now I see it, and now it is in my head. I think about and dream about it. I cannot live without it anymore.
Yes, but we must learn to rise above the mind! Because this mind gets us entangled in so many things, and all these things – we desire them, but how much happiness do they bring us? So many false dreams!
