Has your mind become foggy?
There is a Buddhist quote “Polish your mirror daily, morning and night.”
Of course, the quote is not referring to your actual mirror in your home, rather it is referring to your mind as a mirror.
Back in the day one needed to actually polish their mirror in their home for a clear reflection and this metaphor goes deep comparing the mind to a mirror.
The lesson is that your life is a reflection of your inner self. Each person views their life based from their experiences and mindset. We could easily take the one story and write it from a positive perspective or from a negative perspective and it might even appear like two completely different stories.
If you change your mindset, you will transform your life.
This reflective view also teaches that your environment is a reflection of your life condition. So it isn’t only how you view different scenarios but it is also how people respond to you.
Anyone with experience knows that you cannot change people.
You can only change what you can control,
and that is yourself.
You can polish your mirror daily with meditation, journalist or self-reflection. You reflection clearer with each consistent polish.
