Our mind has the habit of thinking and what an ugly habit; we are told that because we think – so we exist, so keep thinking. We are told that if you are not occupied with the mind all the time, then you will invite the devil. It is such a heightened misconception that people are going crazy just because of this. An empty mind is not the devil’s home but an empty mind is the home of the Buddha.
Those who are running after their goals, those who are hungry for wealth, success, they are still in the process of learning this truth that they have failed in achieving that which could have really fulfilled them. The endless desires, a long list of wants, always hampers this wisdom to seek the eternal, to know the truth. So those who have the question – what do I really want? I have everything but something is missing – have in a way finished the first prerequisite to move on the higher path of spirituality. This something which you are looking for is not outside of you, it is right in you. The need is to know who you really are, what is your core, what is your true identity. The need is to peel off the layers of thoughts in the mind – as you know yourself as mind only and your true identity has got muddled by mind.
