781 – Thoughts

The supreme lord said: While you speak words of wisdom, you are mourning for that which is not worthy of grief. The wise lament neither for the living nor for the dead. – Bhagwad Gita: Chapter 2, Verse 11

The self is unmanifest, unthinkable and unchangeable. Therefore, knowing it to be as such, you should not grieve. – Bhagwad Gita: Shloka 2/25

Picture the mind as a calm lake stretched before you and the thoughts that come and go as bubbles rising and breaking on its surface. Make no effort to control the thoughts, but watch them and follow them in imagination as they float away. – Swami Vivekananda
