You have many rooms in your mind. A room of joy, another of grumpiness, a happy room, a room in which you dream and imagine things, and a room in which you create things and form ideas. You cannot be in two rooms at the same time – you cannot be joyous and grumpy together, and you cannot be in your creative room when you are having an argument with someone. They just don’t mix.
You also have both a carnal mind and an enlightened mind, and here again, you cannot be in both minds at the same time. You cannot be having an argument with another carnal tongue and its mind and be in the room of enlightened joy in your own mind at the same time. They just don’t mix.
So, what does one do? Firstly, you need to understand that carnal tongues and ears are senders and receivers of memes, and that these memes are highly contagious. If one room in one mind transmits these memes via its tongue another room in another mind might receive the infection through its ears, and a quarrel erupts. Thus the second thing to do is to get out of the reception field of the carnal memes. Finally, once you have rediscovered your enlightened mind, get into that room of joy, receive the rapture and be amused that you are the director of your mind.
After all, you are the director of all INFORMATION in your mind. No one else can enter your mind unless you open your door, which is a good and easy thing to do if the other mind is full of joy.
