Teacher: Your mind is your most precious possession.
Student: What does that mean?
Teacher: Think for yourself. Don’t let anyone else insist they know what’s best for you to believe. If seven billion people all think the same way, and you think differently – do not let any one of those seven billion persuade you to agree with what they think. Evolution is depending on you to be revolutionary, and thus evolutionary with your thinking.
Student: I feel like authority figures in my life put restraints on my thinking.
Teacher: Your inner world belongs to you. You are the supreme emperor of your kingdom of thoughts. Be as free as the eagle that soars the mountaintops when it comes to your thought. Let your thoughts fly high and allow no one to shoot them down. For if you do, you find your life-ambitions are tethered to the ground. You mind is your most prized possession; it’s priceless. Hold tight to that fact and you will know what it is to be absolutely, completely and totally free. Sweet liberty!
Student: So, you’re saying that when I lose possession of my mind, I lose possession of my life?
Teacher: Your life is clay. You are the potter. When you lose possession of your mind, you no longer mold your life. Yes, you’ve got it right.
