The mind is like white linen

The mind is like white linen just returned from the laundry.

It takes on the colour you dip it in.

First is the purification of the mind.

Afterwards, if you direct the mind to the contemplation of God,

it will be coloured by God-Consciousness.

Again, if you direct the mind to worldly duties,

it will be coloured by worldliness.

~ Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
