We are not what we see when we stand before a mirror.
We are that which is not seen, that which we feel
ourselves to be. And that is the same in all. That
Being that makes us all one we call God, the antaratma
(the Indweller), the One in the many.
The foundation of all spiritual life is conduct and
character, goodness of heart and the purity of one's
inner, hidden motivation for actions, speech and
thought. No spiritual life or Yoga or Vedanta can
stand upon a foundation of bad character, evil
thoughts or wrong practices."
