Read-a-Gita! You might learn something.
Here are some verses from the Gita to deliberate on, they came to mind today.
About the mind:
"For one whose mind is unbridled, self -realization is difficult work. But he whose mind is controlled and who strives by appropriate means is assured of success. That is My opinion."
- Bhagavad-gita, 6.37
"As a blazing fire turns firewood to ashes, O Arjuna, so does the fire of knowledge burn to ashes all reactions to material activities."
- Bhagavad-gita, 4.37
"The living entity in the material world carries his different conceptions of life from one body to another, as the air carries aromas. Thus he takes one kind of body and again quits it to take another."
- Bhagavad-gita, 15.8
