The bird of the mind flies on two wings: the past and the future. Cut off the wings! Be here, now: hear, chant and remember – love, serve and surrender.
When mind says 'No' it means Krishna is saying "Yes".
Mind is like a dacoit, it takes you for a ride and robs you of your wealth.
You can try to be the master of your senses but only Krishna can master your mind. In this world, devotees alone are controlling their minds because they engage them always in the service of Krishna.
The mind rules non-devotees. Devotees rule the mind.
If we contemplate on bad, selfish and egoistic thoughts, the mind will force us to speak and act accordingly in due course of time.
