We see strength in the bodies of athletes. We think we see the strength of the mind in spelling bee competitions. Real strength can only come when we sit in silence and build our focus. Then we have to be careful about what we think, as these thoughts can manifest. To control this power, we are told to think of devotion and service so that, if these thoughts manifest, they can help everyone. One day, you can realize that this mind is the portal to the Lord Himself. You put out no effort to get this mind, yet it can give you everything. The grace of the mind can make you egoistic or humble, depending on who gets the credit. All the success of human creation is due to the creativity of the mind. Yet, so many of us do not use this tool for its capabilities. — Satish Daryanani
