Mind is nothing other than thoughts. These thoughts are often like iron filings, metallic, sharp, piercing, dense and scattered all over our mental space.
They consume immense energy as they are often diverse, conflicting and hard to dissolve creating agitation and disturbances in the mind field.
One therefore seeks to get rid of them by eliminating them one by one through vigilant self observation and Sadhana. It is not necessary to do so.
All one needs is to recognise the magnetic field of self awareness ever present within us at the spine, 3rd eye and Spiritual Heart, and these powerful magnetic currents will effortlessly draw the iron metallic filings towards itself.
Such is the magnificence and radiance of the EVER present bliss-love-joy within us that it can bring forth a unified powerful stream of consciousness which has both the fluidity of creative intelligence and the utter stillness and silence of the soul.
