CREATIONS OF THE LIMITED MIND

Meher Baba

 
Mind, which is subject to dispositional and impressional determinism, seeks and creates an over-powering false world, becomes enmeshed in it, and projects into it a false value that must in the end, due to its very nature, betray itself.

Mind divides a reality which is essentially indivisible. It clings to a form which is essentially perishable. It glorifies itself in actions which are essentially binding and in achievements which are essentially insignificant. It enjoys and suffers against a background of vacuity, thus depriving itself of any real happiness or understanding.

The only way to live in the sanity of undeluded understanding is to become aware of this impressional determinism of the ego-mind and to become free of its vitiating constraint.
