Contemplation: Mind Only

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take this as your object of contemplation:

It should be understood that [the conception of] the entire world of objects can be held only on the basis of man's deluded mind of ignorance. All things, therefore, are just like the images in a mirror which are devoid of any objectivity that one can get hold of; the are of the mind only and are unreal.

from The Awakening of Faith, p. 48-49.
