Meditation: The discovery of Truth from within.


J. Donald Walters  (Swami Kriyananda)



"Openness can be a great virtue, but only when it is exercised with discrimination.  To be open to wrong ideas, or to people who would harm you, would be foolish.  For it is not with openness that error can be conquered, but with love.

Openness of mind is a virtue when it is centered in the desire for the                                 truth.  Openness of heart is a virtue when it is centered in love for God.                               Both mind and heart, however, need filters to screen out what is not true,                             and is not of God.  This we can do by referring back for approval to the                                 divine presence within whatever comes to us.  We must be ever open to                               truth and to God, but ever closed, or at least indifferent, to error and                                   delusion."




My mind is open to the truth, whatever its source.  True statements                                  remain valid, even if hurled in anger.
