Our mind is not out to mug us

From the nondual perspective, our subjective capacities for knowledge or experience, and the objective elements that are known or experienced are a single unified reality. This mind (or Buddha) that sees, hears, smells, tastes, feels, and thinks, is the myriad dharmas that are seen, heard, smelled, tasted, felt, and thought. This mind/the myriad dharmas is not, as the common view supposes, something to be wary of; our mind is not out to mug us.
