When people are hungry, they eat. When they are cold they put on raiment. with survival instinct, the body itself is making an effort to survive. Our mind is the same. These are the things needed for the mind to survive. First, to find the hole in our empty ego that is hidden within us. Second, to turn an ear to the signal the mind sends. Finally, to confront the entity that is the source of the minds disease. If you don’t fully face the the entity, the hole in the mind will gradually grow bigger. In the end the mind will disappear and only a dark hole will remain.
