Kathopanishad - Episode 56

The Correct Way To Think

The mind is comprised of four major elements and by a combination of these elements, we make decisions and navigate the world. In order to always make good decisions, it is necessary to verify our thinking with either a direct guru or against some universal standards set by the exemplary behaviour of noble people.

The next level is always thinking selflessly and sacrificing one’s desires or preferences for the good of the many.

Beyond this is one more level still, where one does not even think, selflessly or otherwise; one just is. This is the state known as the śāntā ātman; where our mind and will are no longer separate from that of the divine.
