Fire is seen if you blow the ash away from live ambers. You can see clear water only after removing the moss from its surface. A person's vision is clouded when he has cataract in his eyes, but when the cataract is operated upon, he gets back his normal vision. Similarly, as long as a person is under the influence of the mind, he identifies himself with the body and experiences pleasure and pain. Once he transcends the mind, the dualities of the world do not exist for him. He visualizes Divinity every where.
