Ignoring the mind is a beautiful sadhana. This is what many of the sages did. They ignored the mind out of existence. It loses its influence and its potency when it is ignored.
Ignore the mind until there is no future. When there is no future, future is not a trap. Past is not a trap. And then you can talk about anything, because future and past are not sucking from now. You see? Otherwise, with this suck, there is an oscillation between future and past. And that brings in another noise, and another noise…
When the attention is not straying, when it is not picking up all types of nonsense, then you will find that you are in peace.
