Mind has a very important role in the play of life.
It is a wonderful power that emerges
from the same source as the conscious presence we are.
However, as soon as God calls you homewards,
mind will begin to bite you each and
every time you turn to it for reassurance
or lean on him for support.
And it is good that you are bitten.
For this bite tells you, ‘Leave this company now
and turn your face fully to your Lord.
These are my instructions. I’ll keep biting until
you turn from me and stand on the firm ground
of your unshared Being.’
