      Hello....Here is where Mantra is very helpful. Your mind is force
      feeding you what it wants, and needs to be tamed. This can be done by
      giving it a task to do, and Mantra is one of the most beneficial and
      easy tasks you can assign it. There is a nice article titled Neti
      Neti
      in the original sample issue of our newsletter, The Inner Traveler,
      that deals well with this. The URL for that issue is:

      Please let us know of your success.
      Peace and blessings,
