Our well-being depends on mind, for the power of mind is undeniable.

Illusion mind can lead us into spirals of depression, circles of confusion, or stagnant pools of indifference.

Meditation mind can lead to the joy and equanimity of the samadhis.

Awareness mind can forestall mistakes and lead us toward virtue, joy, compassion, and effortless effort. 

Mind can be our best friend, supporting us in every difficulty, or our fierce enemy, turning even simple acts of perception into occasions for devastating suffering.
