Mandala #335 – Bodnant III

If your mind is related to something outside itself, that mind is small mind, a limited mind. If your mind is not related to anything else, then there is no dualistic undertstanding in the activity of your mind. You understand activity as just waves of your mind. Big mind experiences everything within itself. Do you understand the difference between the two minds: the mind which includes, and the mind which is related to something? Actually they are the same thing, but the understanding is different, and your attitude towards life will be different according to which understanding you have.
