Junk food to the mind
Junk food - seductively tasty! And at the same time, horribly unhealthy! Most of us would agree that regular consumption of this is injurious to health. But, we do not apply the same logic to the mind. Regularly subjecting the mind to junk input is pernicious and makes the mind junk. When all we talk / think is egoic or entertaining, mind accumulates junk and becomes heavy with tamas. Constant input of meaningful and trans-egoic thoughts and ideas, makes it fit and nimble! Are we willing to at least see that we are subjecting our mind to junk constantly and therein bring about a change?
