In our times, controlling your mind can be a challenge each day. Information is coming again and again each second and your brain is used 99% just to filter the huge incoming data. A good feature of it is that it is programmable. We set it on some specific keywords and we can let it process only the suitable information. But working just with your brain you might miss the infinite knowledge of your soul and hence the entire Universe.
Your mind produces thoughts, and your soul produces feelings. A thought always has a feeling attached and if you release it out of your body, it touches other minds and souls. Consider this when talking or interacting with people, use your ears to listen to the words and your heart to get the attached feelings, and you will discover a new dimension of life.
