“Quien domina la mente, lo domina todo”, decía Kalimán.
A popular Mexican comic book character, Kalimán, intones many wise sayings about ways to live more fully, consciously, and kindly.
I love this particular quote because he really draws out the power of our mind and thoughts over our lives.
I see lot of truth in this. After years of meditation, and plenty of time around meditators, I’ve noticed a difference.
I don’t think control is really the right word though. Nor do I think ruling or domination is an accurate translation. Instead, I think it’s more effective to accept the mind, such as it is, and let the thoughts flow without controlling them nor being controlled by them.
Even more important than the mind is the heart. No, not the heart alone. Instead it’s the synchronization of our heart and mind which really lets us live most fully.
Yes, let’s continue where Kalimán started us:
Who rules the mind and heart, rules all!
Who lives in mindfulness and heartfulness, lives in total fullness!
