Well, then, where does one put his mind?
I answered, "If you don't put it anywhere, it will go to all parts of your body and extend throughout its entirety. In this way, when it enters your hand, it will realize the hand's function. When it enters your foot, it will realize the foot's function.
If one thinks, he will be taken by his thoughts.
Because this is so, leave aside thoughts and discrimination, throw the mind away from the entire body do not stop it here and there, and when it does visit these various places, it will realize function and act without error."
The effort not to stop the body in just one place-this is discipline. Not stopping the mind is object and essence. Put nowhere, it will be everywhere.
