    Hope you are all enjoying your time here on the forum!

    Here's an article you may find helpful one way or another -

    Not only should you let go of every answer the mind offers up to you, you must learn to let go of even the desire for an answer.

    Stop grasping at straws, trying to understand. Make peace with “not knowing.” Feel that delicious sense of mystery. Marinate in it. Forget about an answer. Let the question itself take you out of your mind, and lead you into wide open spaces of wonder, humility and awe.

    This is the art of self-inquiry. The purpose of the question is not to arrive at an answer, but to silence the mind.

    The complete article is here at Zenful Spirit -

    Many years ago when I became a vegetarian, I was very worried about eating products that don't tell they have animal products.
    So, I asked a mahatma what I should do.
    He smiled and said "I never look for hidden eggs in biscuits".

    He also said, don't worry about mind or ego; make friend's with it and continue.
