The mind seems untamable for those who try to still it or control it, and that is true. The mind and it’s processes is beyond the will of the individual. But one day the adept might discover that the mind is entirely controllable. That is when he realizes his oneness with a divine agency.
The more you try to control the mind, the more friction you create. That is the sure way to fail enlightenment. Rather you must let go, and become adaptable. Then friction is destroyed and you can do what you were meant to do.
First you want control. Then you realize that control is impossible. The final stage is when you realize that your life is in the hands of Jehova. You must relinguish control and become fluid and adaptable.
