MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 19-15.1.
Chapter 19 -Thought-Culture-15.1.
15. Sattvic Background of Thought-1.
The vast majority of people will always want something concrete to hold on to, something around which, as it were, to place their ideas, something which will be the centre of all thought-forms in their minds.
That is mind's very nature. A background of thought is needed for fixing the mind.
Have a Sattvic background of thought or mental image.
The mind assumes the shape of any object it intently thinks upon.
If it thinks of an orange, it assumes the shape of an orange.
If it thinks of Lord Krishna with flute in hand, it assumes the shape of Lord Krishna.
You must train the mind properly and give it proper, Sattvic food for assimilation.
