Too many things are happening in my life at a very fast pace. At the same time I am focusing more and more within myself wondering what attitude, what self effort is really required to ultimately silence the mind.

I have finally concluded that it is impossible to silence the mind. There is no way. There is no way to get rid of anger, frustration or anything that goes on. The only thing that I can do is either identify with whats going on or choose not to identify.That is the only choice I have.

Asangoham means Disassociation. This seems to be the only way to realise that I am beyond all the good and bad. I am beyond the mess created by the mind. I am not the mind.

Its quite amazing to watch that though this shift is so very little and so minute and subtle it makes such a huge difference in the state of being every time we make it.

    I love the simplicity with which what you say strikes the heart. Subtle, and yet so powerful.
