Seven Reasons Why the Mind is so Difficult to Control...

  1. The mind never stops and it's hard to find someone who can stay awake long enough to watch it all the time.
  2. Thoughts chase thoughts.
  3. Thoughts have no home base at which to stay.
  4. Your mind automatically attracts thoughts.
  5. Your mind enjoys thoughts.
  6. Nothing can control the mind except thoughts, but they are the very things of which the mind solely consists.
  7. And lastly, the mind doesn't want to be controlled! (and I have no idea who it was that ever told man that it should or could be).   -JC 30 June 2000
