Seven Clear Functions Of The Mind - Day 154

Let's get into the tasks:

  1. Choice - to do and think right
  2. Refusal - of temptation
  3. Yearning - to be better
  4. Repulsion - of negativity, of bad influences, of what isn't true
  5. Preparation - for what lies ahead or whatever may happen
  6. Purpose - our guiding principle and highest priority
  7. Assent - to be free of deception about what's inside and outside our control (and be ready to accept the latter)

This is what the mind is here to do. We must make sure that it does - and see everything else as pollution or a corruption.
