Common Problem: Don’t control mind with force when its wandering with thoughts. I try to pull the mind and order it not to think about something. Yet I find that, the more we try to force the mind not to go in a particular direction, the more it tends to go there. Solution: The way to control the mind is to talk to it with love. Just as one would explain to a small child, I need to explain to it with love rather than force. This will make my mind my best friend and I will be able to concentrate even in any undesirable situations.
