[deleted user] If you occupy your mind with things that you can not change, you will miss your brain that could finger out how to change what you actually can.

[deleted user] No, accept things as they are, see what serves life and then you have full power to go. If it is good ore bad = not truth so if you act because it is 'good ore bad' you are delusional, judgements are imaginary. Life is a process of fulfilling needs. Do not think , observe, feel, sense, your heart will tell you direction and only then you engage your brain, let that bitch working for you. Mind slavery happens when some one reach our imagination and we follow that suggested imaginary real dream. Your heart knows observe able, sense able, reality that we all share. Moments of wisdom can visit you only when your mind is quiet and listening (do not think and full attention to what is as long as possible)
[deleted user] The problem then is: Is it possible for a mind that has been so conditioned—brought up in innumerable sects, religions, and all the superstitions, fears—to break away from itself and thereby bring about a new mind?....The old mind is essentially the mind that is bound by authority. I am not using the word authority in the legalistic sense; but by that word I mean authority as tradition, authority as knowledge, authority as experience, authority as the means of finding security and remaining in that security, outwardly or inwardly, because, after all, that is what the mind is always seeking—a place where it can be secure, undisturbed. Such authority may be the self- imposed authority of an idea or the so called religious idea of God, which has no reality to a religious person. An idea is not a fact, it is a fiction. God is a fiction; you may believe in it, but still it is a fiction. But to find God you must completely destroy the fiction, because the old mind is the mind that is frightened, is ambitious, is fearful of death, of living, and of relationship; and it is always, consciously or unconsciously, seeking a permanency, security.
