Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- A Divine Mind
"A clean and controlled mind becomes a
divine mind. It draws the entire capacity
of the Self of the individual. The Self is
the image of God. You are made in the image
of the divine. That means we have God within
us. In that case, we should have all the
capacities of God, but we don't seem to
because of the improper instrument through
which the divine potentialities are to be
expressed. The power is there, the light is
there, but it's not expressing itself because
of the enclosure. The mind and the body are
such enclosures. Imagine there is a candle
burning. If there is a dark smoky chimney
placed around it, it will not allow the light
to shine forth. Clean the smoke, and you will
see some light. Clean the mind and you'll see the divine.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
