One way to see yourself with a clear eye is to detach yourself from the present. We can do this by projecting fifty years into the future. Now look back at your life and say, “What have I accomplished? What do I really want to do with this life cycle?”
Your constructive thoughts and emotions and actions will precipitate a spiritual fire within your heart. This light will surround you like a cloak with protection. Now this experience is in your imagination, but at the end of your life cycle this will be a real experience. Your whole life will pass before you, but you will not be able to change anything. Now you have the opportunity before you to mold your experience according to spiritual law, so that when you look back in fifty years you will say, “I am happy I followed the spiritual path.”
Every hour I shall mold my experience with love and service.
