“The mind is like a crystal,” write the leaders. “When we put a crystal next to a blue velvet cloth, it reflects a blue color. When we put it next to red velvet, it reflects red. Likewise when we place the mind in an environment that is of a lower nature, it can often be pulled down to that level. And when we focus it on spiritual practice, it lifts us beyond the ordinary to experience our true nature. What you focus on, you energize!
