Watch all ideas that emphasize the self, and be willing to let those ideas go as unnecessary.

  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
