I think it is for those who practice meditation. I do not think about mind what will do not do not - just according to situation I proceed with mind and sense.

We definitely need to be out of our minds more - it gets us into so much trouble. But our senses may not be the answer either. Perhaps come to our senses is not necessarily about smell, hearing, sight etc. More it's about common sense, a more learned response instead of reaction. In meditation it is getting out of the mind that gives you peace. And our senses are also a problem because they keep us in the external world instead of the internal one. We have to lose our minds to become extraordinary.
