seeing clearly

Enjoy these inspiring words from Sri Nisargadatta Maharaja via Stephen Paul’s blog.

Stephen Paul's Blog

To see reality is as simple as to see one’s face in a mirror.

Only the mirror must be clear and true.

A quiet mind, undistorted by desires and fears,

free from ideas and opinions, clear on all the levels, is needed to reflect the reality.

Be clear and quiet — alert and detached, all else will happen by itself.

~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

  8. Yes! A quiet mind, like the surface of a still pond, provides a more accurate reflection.

  9. Thank you for the very wise words. Mr Midnight, one of my furry protagonists from our blog, adds that it look like the human race has got a lot of cleaning to do if it is to get its mirror clean and shiny. I apologise for his strange humour. Kind regards. 🙂
