"The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make heaven of Hell, and a hell of Heaven." - John Milton (1608-1674)
'Mind' is a philosophical term for the part of us that thinks, feels and wills. It refers to mental activity, and, when it can, it draws upon the memory of our experiences.
Some of us are happy with the control we have over our minds. The rest of us experience unhappiness or distress with where our thoughts and feelings lead us.
For most of us, life is unsatisfactory - socially, financially, mentally - and contentment is much needed yet very hard to achieve. Why is this?
You probably know why.
