Both Sides Now


The self exists both inside and outside the physical body, just as 
an image exists both inside and outside the mirror.  
~~Ashtavakra Gita (c.200BCE-c.200CE)


We often spend a good deal of time working on our outside appearance.  After the morning shower, we might apply lotion to soften our skin, take time fixing our hair, and apply makeup and perhaps some jewelry. Then we poke through the closet looking for an outfit that looks perfect for wherever it is we're going.

But how often do we take time to spruce up the "self" inside the physical body, especially the mind?  It doesn't matter how stunning we look on the outside if what's inside is cruel and dark. Beauty on the outside is great, but beauty on the inside...now that's something to strive for.

IT IS ALL IN YOUR HEAD!
