The mind

This is a very famous quotation - undoubtedly because it is so very true:

"The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.."

John Milton (from Paradise Lost)

It would be skillful, I think, to call this to mind the next time we find ourselves believing that our misery or our happiness is dependent on something or someone outside ourselves.
