Mental awakening is not reality.
However mental focus, discipline and coaching are necessary on the path of awakening from mind.

Do not listen to this advice with the mind.
Listen with the wisdom of Heart.

Mind is helpful on the path of awakening just as it is helpful on the trail into illusion.
One cannot avoid mind as long as mind has not been transcended.
However, there is a helpful or corrective aspect of mind.

1. Learn to discern between mind that points toward truth and mind that consistently points into the forest of illusion.

2. Abide by the guidance of corrective mind.

3. Use any means helpful to disengage from the illusion-promoting aspect of mind.

  1. “So long as one does not subdue the mind with mind, one cannot attain Self-knowledge; and as long as one entertains the false notions of ‘I’ and ‘mine’, so long sorrow does not come to an end.”

    ~ The Supreme Yoga; Yoga Vasistha
