The real way to control the mind is to set it free. We must set it free from all the bonds that hold it back and force it to adhere and conform to expected ways of thinking. Let it think on its own. We must allow ourselves to let our minds lead us to greater, bigger, and better things and places. Let it fill itself with creativity. Let it create a world different from the one we live in. What we see now is as much an illusion as the sights we would see, were our minds allowed to be free.
A candle burns in the presence of air. Let that air be our freedom and then we shall see endless possibilities.
