The True Self

Do You Know how to Count Correctly ?

You have got a body* and a mind. Now deal with them !


Count correctly ! These are three authorities :

body, mind and YOU.


Who are YOU ?


You are the underlying Absolute Principle – the True Self.

Three Monks

In India a little story about 3 young monks is told. They had to cross a river on their way to the next town. Arrived on the other side of the river the eldest of them counted if everybody still is with them. But he only counted two monks. So another had to count; but he also saw and counted only two. Even the youngest couldn't change the situation; he also saw and counted only two. So grief overwhelmed them because they believed having lost a classmate in the floods of the river.

A Guru came along seeing the young monks in great grief. He asked for the matter. They told him that they had been three and now after crossing the river only two can be counted.

Now the Guru counted the young monks. He counted: „One, two, three. You have forgotten your self !", he told them.

This is what we do. We remember on our True Self.

Stones or Milk

When your mind is too much occupied, you cannot be aware of your Divine Self.


Throw the stones out of the milk can. If you can’t help filling it, at least fill it with tasty milk.


We empty the mind from all thoughts.  If we can not do so, at least we fill it with thoughts about God. Better than having rubbish in the head.

That’s what we do. We empty our mind.

Mind focusing

A Firm Mind

The mind is like a wild horse that wants to be tamed and trained. Top sportsperson know how important a steady focused mind is.

And what is the mind training?

To be mentally still. And to be aware. Aware of you divine essence.

It counts in daily life as well, e.g. while brushing the teeth!  smile

Mind training means to empty the can
Mind training means: to empty the can

(Sins years there are no cows anymore, only the milk can remained.)
