It is Your Mind
The Buddha said: “It is your mind that creates this world”.
Our mind determines the way we see things.
Below you may find an amusing example.
Is the woman rotating clockwise or counter-clockwise?
If you keep watching, you will notice that the direction reverses.
She does not turn one way or the other.
Our mind determines that direction.
It is the same with our lives.
Having an understanding of both directions
and choosing the right one at the right time is what we refer to as
‘the middle way’.
