The mind is frivolously disrespectful. When we try to curb it, it becomes more agitated. Therefore, to stop the growth of the mind, the Sadguru gives us the remedy. "If you try to keep quiet, gradually the imagination and doubts dissolve." When a small infant is sleeping, if you observe its eyes for some time you can easily learn a lesson from him how to stay quiet. When going to sleep, you will see how easily the infant slips into sleep, forgetting himself. While you are looking at the baby, you can also slip into the state of forgetfulness devoid of imaginings, dreams, desires, worries, and doubts.
