Three Mirrors for Inner Beauty (Part 3)
In the last two days’ messages, we have explained the first mirror for inner beauty - the mirror of spiritual knowledge.
The second mirror is the mirror of meditation – In the silence of meditation which is a connection or the experience of a relationship with the 𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐫 𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐮𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐞 𝐒𝐨𝐮𝐥, each day you come close to and go deeper into both of them. When you create positive and powerful thoughts about the self and you also visualize your true spiritual self, you feel and experience your true virtuous being, what you are - radiant and free of all influences.
➤That experience helps you to see yourself as you really and originally are and in contrast to how you are now. Perhaps you feel peaceless, disturbed, and in pain today, but by 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐩𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐢𝐧 𝐦𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 you quickly realize that in reality positivity and strength are your true nature. In that way, it serves as a mirror for 𝚜𝚎𝚕𝚏-𝚛𝚎𝚊𝚕𝚒𝚣𝚊𝚝𝚒𝚘𝚗 and checking and changing. When you visualize the Supreme Soul during meditation and experience His virtues, it helps you to see and quickly realize yourself in contrast to Him and make the required changes in yourself because the child should reflect the qualities of the Father.
➤So a good practice then is to look into this mirror and check yourself once in the morning before the day’s activities and once before sleeping for at least 15 minutes each time. Also, since this is a very important mirror, it is also extremely important to carry this mirror with you throughout the day and check yourself in it for one minute after every hour.
➤All of us are aware that an unclean external self is not pleasing to the self and does not create a favorable impression on those who come in contact with us, in the same way that applies to the inner self also. So one minute spent looking into this mirror every hour, and doing some self-introspection and checking and changing will keep us looking good for the next fifty-nine minutes and if we do dirty ourselves internally during those 59 minutes, then corrections can be made quickly in the next one minute break.

"True Knowledge Brings Humility"
Expression: True knowledge inspires and encourages one to bring about a practical change in one's life. The one with knowledge naturally imbibes it, which is also revealed in his practical life. This is because he is humbly willing to learn from all situations. As much as there is knowledge, so much there is divinity and elevatedness revealed in all words and actions. Also, such a person keeps learning from all life's situations.
Experience: To have the ability to learn from all that life brings is to have a love for knowledge. Since I have love for knowledge, I am able to experience self-respect. This self-respect gives me the humility to accept situations and people as they are and keep learning. So whatever the situation or whoever the person I come across, I only find myself enriching myself and moving forward.
