Our mind offers us an inner palace and fortress capable of remaining independent and free from the worldly events around us. Our mental palace can be a refuge in times of need—unapproachable unless you invite guests—worries—thoughts into its walls.
It can also be a university. Our mind can also be a place of learning if we choose to no longer let our idle thoughts simply glide across our minds only to be lost in that untamed wilderness.
Instead, take those thoughts and explore them in this hidden university. You can begin by deconstructing the world—the pain—the hardships—around you. When we understand the sources, causes and effects of such pain we can then begin to build a future with fewer obstacles in the way.
