14527Weekly Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Dec 3, 2005Correct the Mirror
"Normally our minds are not clean, not quiet.
There are a lot of waves in the pond. When you
want to see your own face in a bowl of water,
how should the water be? Clear and peaceful.
If there are waves in the water, what kind of
face do you see? A terrible one! Do you run to
a doctor? No. Because you know that there is
nothing wrong with your face. There is something
wrong with the mirror. So you correct the mirror,
and you see your face again. That is the aim of
Yoga. You don't have to do anything to the face
itself. It is always clean. Nobody can pollute God.
But you don't see it yourself because the
mirror--the mind--is dirty. Calm the mirror.
Clean the mirror. Purify it and see your true face.
