There is a vast difference between an open mind and a closed mind. The closed mind will ‘hear’ nothing that does not resonate with whatever its beliefs are. Nothing is more closed than a mind that says: “This is the only way to salvation [by any name]. It is a very tight straight-jacket within a world that is already a tiny prison. An open Heart ‘is’ the ONE SELF.

-The open mind still has only an infinitesimally small awareness of Truth

-The SELF is beyond even the concept of Open-ness

-The mind functions through learned ignorance of facts, details and history

-The SELF is EMPTY and simply KNOWS when required

-The mind is puffed up or insecure

-The SELF is humility IT SELF, vulnerable but standing in absolute authority

-The mind has a myriad of beliefs

-The SELF has no belief – IT ‘knows’

-The mind waffles and is always changing and morphing

-The SELF never changes

-The mind is temporary and limitless

-The SELF is eternal and boundless

-The mind is ‘made-up’ of attachments, expectations and identifications tied to memory (past) and imagination (future], which are illusions

-The SELF is NOTHING and yet All That Is.
