Kathopanishad - Episode 39

Turn The Senses Inwards To Experience Divinity

God created the senses to function in an outgoing manner, but it is our task to withdraw our attention from the outgoing sense and focus inwards. Those who run after outward distractions finally meet their death and get lost in the repeated cycle of birth and death. The discerning one, however, learns to turn his gaze inwards. He does this by shielding his senses from the pull of the outside world.

When one closes their eyes to the outside world, the mind instead turns inwards. By training our mind to listen to us and not be worried, fearful or restless, we have won the battle of life. A trained mind can be used to do anything, including realise God.
