We need to make up our mind not to listen to our mind. “Mind listening to the mind” means ego reflecting on itself. “Getting our self out of the way” means removing ego from the mind. When ego is removed, then there is no reflection of ego. Instead, the mind reflects the “Light of the Soul” which is the energy of Consciousness.
When the mind is energized with the light of Consciousness we become “light heartedâ€™—we don’t take ourselves so seriously and don’t feel overburdened with anxiety, annoyance, and frustration.
True peace of mind can only be realized by getting out of our ego. As long as we remain in our ego we remain in bondage.
