What you are, so is your world. Everything in the universe is resolved into your own experience. It matters little what is without, for it is all a reflection of your state of consciousness. It matters everything what you are within for everything without will be mirrored and coloured accordingly.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Imagine a glass of green coloured water. The clear sunlight shines through it and it reflects the colour green. In the same way, a glass of red coloured water reflects red light. A glass of blue coloured water reflects blue light.
Now let’s take the green coloured water and start to refine it and purify it so the green coloured water gradually begins to fade. A point is reached when the water is no longer green in colour. Now the sun shines through the clear water and the reflection is pure light, untinged by the impurities of green.
In the same way, our individual nervous system is a reflector for pure consciousness, Being. The quality and the purity of the reflection will always be dependent on the quality and purity of the reflector. So no surprises that a stressed, dull and tired mind/body produces a muddied reflection.
In meditation when we transcend thinking we clean up our reflector. Every day, in every meditation, we rest profoundly; many times deeper than sleep. That deep rest is what dissolves the obstructions so the inner light of life can begin to shine forth, unimpeded by all the mucky stuff. More and more we are able to radiate the light of pure creative energy and intelligence that is at our core.
As a result our world will look clearer. Our world will appear brighter. Our world will feel lighter. Our world will be perceived by us as more expansive. Our world will shine with the glow of wholeness. Our world will pulsate with the vibration of love.
What you are, so is your world.
