“...You may control a mad elephant;
You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger;
Ride the lion and play with the cobra;
By alchemy you may learn your livelihood;
You may wander through the universe incognito;
...Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful;
You may walk in water and live in fire;
But control of the mind is better and more difficult...”

Paramahansa Yogananda..

Better for the mind, not for you

More difficult? absolutely.
Better? Better maybe for the mind itself, it lives on your futile trials to control and resist it.

This is the reason why one has to be extra careful with the advices of others, especially others such as Yogananda.
