overcoming being miserable or being far from the attacks of revulsion when a moment's equanimity is considered actual happiness on a bumpy ride called life, the gateway to placidity and peace seems to be ..balancing of mind or the objective observing of mind-matter interaction at the level of sensation sans blind reaction, the insight to see things as it is for the mind is in constant touch with the feelings of pains,heat,cold,stress.. at the subtler level of body with pleasant feelings in body, the mind reacting with clinging and unpleasant ones greeted with aversion! saying ' you are your own master' paves the way for realizing the mantra that everything changes in the world, the people, situations, constantly and looking things just as they are, rather than a resorting to a blind reactionary spiral, arrests mind malfunctioning! if diseases,accidents need medical help why the mental short circuits of anger,mood swings,insecurities,depression be deprived of the mental help? the antidote being.. the mind surgery and dispassion! call it utilitarianism or a truce with life, the road ahead is to rewire and mind repair!
