that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea -
and there is no experiment up to now

to make you aware of all that is "mind"
and disidentify yourself from it.

which makes you more joyous, fulfills you,
gives you contentment, makes your life a work of art, a beauty.
But this is possible only if the master in you is awake.
