“Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed. “
~ Indra Devi
I like this quote because it combines a previous One Little Word of mine — tranquil — with this year’s OLW, mirror. Is anything more peaceful than sitting beside a calm lake the color of mercury, waiting for the sun to rise above the horizon . . . with a fishing pole your hand? Some of my favorite memories of my dad are moments of stillness at Lake Bonita on family camping trips.
