The mind could be likened to a powerful horse,
and the rider of this powerful horse can be likened to the soul of man,
the ultimate goal of the rider is to tame the horse and ride it to long distances,
and this goal can be likened to the Spirit of God which knows all capabilities.
The mind, the powerful horse when untamed, naturally runs wild and free
till it is tamed by the rider, the soul or the spirit of man.
But before the rider can tame the powerful horse, the horse bucks dangerously trying hard to knock the rider off, but a skilled rider who has a goal to tame the horse gains supremacy over the horse by skillfully remaining on top by going along with the flow of the bucking horse, till the horse realizes that the rider is superior to it and allows itself to become tamed by the rider, then the rider can take this powerful horse on long distances than the horse ever thought possible, feeding and caring for it, the rider’s “ultimate goal” is thus accomplished.
Many times our mind runs riot and we try to quieten it, but the best way to quieten or tame our mind, is for our souls, which has learnt how to be in quiet rectitude or meditation by attuning with the Spirit of God (the ultimate goal), is by remaining on top in the same quiet rectitude, going along with the “bucking” flow of the mind and not falling off, till, after some time, the mind realizes that the soul is it’s boss and quietens down to the tempo of the soul which then takes command of the mind, feeding and caring for it and taking it to far places the Spirit of God reaches, the ultimate goal.
So when your mind, which is a very powerful tool starts bucking wildly, quieten it with the same quiet rectitude your Soul has learnt from attuning with the Spirit of God and then you can care for and take your mind to places beyond its imagination.
THE ULTIMATE GOAL
