The proverb comes from the Hermetic period. Mind is like a stormy ocean, a swirling mass of energies of varying subtlety and vibration composed of desires and hatreds born of ignorance of the knowledge of self. Reason is the redeemer, the Heru or Hetheru, the fire of wisdom and desire for enlightenment that burns up ignorance and egoism and their attendant inane and illusory desires and feelings; this is the wisdom that levels the ocean of ignorance and illusion and renders the mind pure, calm and enlightened.
