The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Mind

As the fletcher whittles
And makes straight his arrows,
So the master directs
His straying thoughts.

Seated in the cave of the heart,
He finds freedom.

How can a troubled mind
Understand the way?

An untroubled mind,
No longer seeking to consider
What is right and what is wrong,
A mind beyond judgments,
Watches and understands.

Your worst enemy cannot harm you
As much as your own thoughts, unguarded.
But once mastered,
No one can help you as much,
Not even your father or your mother.

~ Buddha ~
The Dhammapada
