Knowingly, we do not wish for confusion, but unknowingly, we actually create and sustain it.

Mind is devious and defensive, demanding and determined not to obey.

If challenged, mind turns to emotional dramas that exaggerate or denigrate or to radical intellectualizing that asserts unquestionable limits.

The very changeability of mind is a sign that mind is trainable. if we can learn something from mind, we might be able to teach mind and transform it.

We might gain control over mind so that we do not need to follow its every mood.
