My fav quote for the day: Amrita Bindu Upanishad

The mind is said to be two-fold, pure and impure.
The impure has desire and volition; the pure is devoid of desire.

The mind alone is the cause of bondage and liberation for humans.
Attached to objects, it leads to bondage; devoid of objects, it is deemed to lead to emancipation.

Because liberation of the mind devoid of objects is desirable,
The seeker after liberation should always make the mind devoid of objects.

When the mind, freed from contact with objects and restricted in the heart,
becomes non-existent, then that is the supreme state.

It should be checked until it meets with destruction in the heart,
This is wisdom; this is meditation. The rest is diffuse speculation.

Amrita Bindu Upanishad.
