Because this mind, which is just a bubble, as I told you, and is so limited, that it cannot comprehend the beauty, the glory, the expanse of reality. This mind is just a collection of all the garbage, we should say, which we have to, somehow or other, deny and tell ourselves that, “I have to go beyond my mind. So-called mind of mine has done no good for me. And this mind of mine, which has been all the time controlling me, is just like the watch we have made and it is controlling us, or like the computer that controls us.”
So we have to be careful that we are the ones who have created this mind, and this mind has no business to control us.
Many people try to control the mind. There’s a way of doing it that, “I’ll control my mind now.” Now, try to understand, how will you control the mind? Only through mind? Either by ego or by your conditioning? You have no means of controlling your mind, because it is the mind which you have created, and that is just existing there, which you cannot control, though you might think, ‘I can control.’
You have to go beyond this mind. And to go beyond this mind the most helpful thing is Kundalini awakening. Because She passes through your limbic area, pierces through your – fontanel bone area and just takes you away, out into the realm of reality – and the Yoga takes place between your brain, I should say, your heart, with this All-pervading Power. She’s the one which connects, She’s the one who does it. Many people are doing Sahaja Yoga, I know that, but it’s difficult for them, sometimes to get to meditation, to establish this thoughtless awareness, which is an extremely important state which you all should achieve…
Once you start going beyond the mind, you automatically become introspective, and you start seeing, ‘What’s wrong with me, this mind of mine, now?’ So, better stand before the mirror, or can even close your eyes and say, “Now, Mr. Mind, what are you doing? What are you up to?” You face yourself, you stand out from yourself, and see for yourself and ask the mind, “What are you up to?” That’s the way, once you are out of it you can control it.
