How can I hold on to the Self.

The mind is always flowing like an unstoppable river. Most of the time I am not even capable of reaching the Self. How can i hold onto something that i can't even get near?

When it rises, the mind automatically goes out to the world. If you do self-enquiry you can train it to flow towards the Self. In deep sleep the mind automatically goes to the Self, but you are not aware of it. Through the steady practice of self-enquiry the mind can be trained in such a way that it automatically flows towards the Self in the waking and dream states. It is very difficult at first, but with practice it can be done. Repeated self-enquiry makes the mind got back into the Self. Other methods may produce good experiences but the good experiences will not make the mind go back into the Self and stay there.
