The Mind Dies with Total Acceptance
Beloved Bhakti, Love. Total acceptance of existence is impossible for the mind.
Because the mind exists as denial.
It exists with the NO.
And with a total YES it dies So it continues to find reasons to say NO - even if there are no reasons.
Walking with a disciple one day, Mulla Nasrudin saw for the first time in his life a beautiful Lakeland scene.
"What a delight!" he exclaimed. "But if only, if only..."
"If only what, Master?" asked the disciple.
"If only they had not put water into it!"
