Tame the Mind by Focusing it on God


Men are spinning cocoons for themselves.  They suffer because they  are unable to come out of it into the world of light.  They are like the monkeys caught by the wandering beggar, dancing at the end of the rope and begging paisa from those sitting round the ring.  Sankara said that he would willingly offer the monkey (mind) to Siva so that He may teach it tricks which please Him and use it for getting alms for Himself.  That is to say, Sankara proposed to fill his mind with thoughts of God so that the monkey would be tamed and made to serve God's purpose.  You, too, must make the mind the servant of God, not the slave of the senses.

O LORD, TAKE MY LOVE

O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
