Swami Veda Bharati said:
Mind is a mirror in which spirit sees its own face.
When the mind gathers an impression of blue,
it turns, as it were, blue;
and the spirit seeing the reflection, makes itself to be blue.
The mind gathers the impressions of red
and the spirit sees that it is red.
By understanding mind and its functions,
One will understand all one’s problems, aspirations, and seeking.
When the mind has ceased to gather impressions,
It turns away from the world to the spirit within
And there is no more wishing, only a will, a free will.
