Those who are weak minded can be brainwashed easily. Those who think they are smart have tremendous egos, and this helps them to not get brainwashed easily. They already think they know it all. I wish I could be brainwashed easily so my spiritual Masters could have had more influence on me to improve. Having a hard as coconut head like mine takes a lot of effort to crack. Once broken, then the tender part of my mind will be available. No one has been able to crack the hard shell as yet. We are given minds for us to control and grow. Some, for their selfish reasons, can take advantage of us. If you let saints influence you, where only you can benefit, then it is fine to let go. Your brain is your tool that can make this life fulfilling and fun. Enjoy the freedom of your mind. Satish Daryanani
