Those stains on the copper utensil

So the other day I am cleaning this copper utensil that I have. With consistent exposure to the environment, moisture, water, dust etc. it had developed some stains on it.

While I was taking the stains off and trying my best to bring the shine back, it struck me that our mind is also similar to the copper vessel. In the sense that, on constant exposure to the things outside it gets stained in its own way, picking up stuff which might take it’s shine away.

And just like the copper vessel needs consistent cleaning to bring it’s shine back, our mind also needs consistent polishing in order to maintain its shine and radiance.
