Mind over Matter

The average mind is trying to fulfill unessential needs. Mahavira says that true discrimination is to see the distinction between what is essential and what is unessential. We lack a vision of what is truly useful.

You should be clear about the goal of your life. Are you standing for transformation or sheer ego gains? If our life stands for transformation, then when our cunning mind plays its tricks, donít participate with it. Distance yourself from such games by not involving yourself in them. Mentally say 'no' to these games and illusions and develop the joy of being honest.

Illusions are created by an impure mind. A pure mind is like a mirror - it reflects whatever is. However, a mind filled with expectations binds us. Decide not to live in an impure mind and your freedom is your nirvana.
