      Correct 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.
