"There is a sanskrit saying, “Mana eva manushyanam karanam bandha mokshayoho.” “As the mind, so the man; bondage or liberation are in your own mind.” If you feel bound, you are bound. If you feel liberated, you are liberated. Things outside neither bind nor liberate you; only your attitude toward them does. There’s nothing wrong with the world. You can make it a heaven or a hell according to your approach. That is why the entire Yoga is based on chitta vritti nirodhah (restraint of the mind-stuff). If you control your mind, you have controlled everything. Then there is nothing in the world to bind you."

Cosmetic box from the tomb of Sennedjem 
19th Dynasty, New Kingdom, Egypt
The lid of this box, which is attached at the back with horizontal pivots, opens to reveal four compartments for cosmetics. The box could be secured by winding a piece of twine around the two knobs at the front. Its elaborate decoration was intended to imitate more expensive boxes inlaid with ebony, ivory, and perhaps cedar or mahogany. The box is from the tomb of Sennedjem, who was an artist living in the time of Ramesses II.
