The best use of the mind is not to try to work things out; better just keep the mind in a state of silence, neutrality, emptiness. You don´t have to work things out, just understand your true place and things will work themselves out.
The choice really is that you can experience your existence and even the heavenly realms from a personal perspective or impersonally. If you choose only the paradigm of a person, your view will always be limited, always be changeful.
There will come a time when very deep and very intense emotions, feelings and thoughts can come and you still see them as phenomena, you can see that they are just like clouds passing.
