10. Swami Chinmayananda
All of us live our life meeting constantly a variety of "experiences", and at each incident, we perceive, react with the perceived and act in the outer field.
In this process we come to hoard in ourselves more and more of the dirt of new "impressions".
The subjective "mind" in each of us gets more and more granulated by the overlapping signatures of our own past moments.
These granulations make the subjective mind dull and opaque, and form, as it were, an impregnable wall between ourselves and the spiritual Divinity that shines as pure Consciousness in all of us, deep within the core of our "personality".
