The mind is the gatekeeper to the spirit...
The mind is definitely the gatekeeper to the realms of the spirit and in order to control it, one must control themselves first. We all have certain weaknesses that we are ashamed of. From certain physical features and unconditional past secrets that we keep hidden, to the future anxieties that we face from them. These weaknesses, and the many others, are what our enemies use as weapons against us. It is only when we are comfortable with ourselves that we can become comfortable with the outside world.
“I firmly believe that all human beings have access to extraordinary energies and powers. Judging from accounts of mystical experience, heightened creativity, or exceptional performance by athletes and artists, we harbor a greater life than we know. There we go beyond those limited and limiting patterns of body, emotions, volition, and understanding that have been keeping us in dry-dock. Instead we become available to our capacity for a larger life in body, mind, and spirit. In this state we know great torrents of delight.”-Jean Houston
