Controlling the Mind.

The Reality.

Paradoxically, the Reality is so simple yet so complex. The ‘complexity’ is an illusion because the simplicity of the fact is made complex by the limitations of the mind [Moul].

The complexity arises from the vast number of the examples of the Reality in operation, and the simplicity from the simple reason/cause which is karma; it…

The Voice of Conscience & The Voice of Mind.

The voice of one's conscience is often eclipsed by the voice of emotion, or

the voice of emotion comes into play first and is followed by the surfacing

of the voice of conscience after one has reacted to the voice of emotion.

The voice of conscience is of the Spirit and the voice of emotion is of the

mind, hence the importance of cultivating the ability to…

Mind/Soul. (3)

However, one can focus the mind on something in a state of quiet contemplation or, as a means to achieving a state of meditation, concentrate on one's breathing or, for instance, a…

Hope. (1)

Hope can be a positive state of mind, when it is maintained as a general attitude to life; or a grasping at straws, when it is aimed at a specific want or perceived need.

Through the effect of all the unnatural products and scientific devices which…
