One, there was a king who admired art. He encouraged artists from all over his country and gave them valuable gifts.

One day an artist came and requested the king to give him a blank wall in the palace and let him paint a picture on it. He promised that it will be more beautiful than anything the king had ever seen before. The king was getting a big hall constructed at the rear end of the palace. So he told the artist to work on one of the walls in the new hall.

Right at that moment, another young man asked the king to allow him to work on the opposite wall. He said that he was an artist as well.

The king asked him what he would make, to which the man replied that he shall make exactly what the first artist will make on the opposite wall. He added that he will do so, without looking at the other man’s work. He requested for a thick curtain to be put up between the two walls so that either of them could not see the other. That was indeed an ambitious statement. Everyone in the king’s court were intrigued. The king decided to give the young man a chance. The next day, both the artists got to work. The first artist brought in a regular supply of paint, oil, water, etc. The second one would come with a cloth and a bucket of water every day.

After a month, the first artist’s work was complete and he asked the king to have a look. The king sent for the second artist and asked him if his work was ready. The man replied that his wall was ready.

The king went to see the first artist’s wall. He was highly impressed with the painting and gave a hefty sum as a reward to the artist. He asked for the curtain to be opened up. The same painting was seen on the opposite wall as well

Every line, every minor detail was exactly like it was on the first wall. Everyone wanted to know how he had done that.

The king gave a double reward to the fellow. The king then asked him how he did it.

The young man said, he just polished the wall every day.

The wall as made of white marble. The fellow polished it till it started shining like a mirror. The reflection of the painting on the first wall showed up in it.

That is what it means to polish yourself. When we polish our hearts and souls, we see Gods reflection within.

The world is a reflection of you. Whatever you are, the world will seem to be that. If you are sad, jealous, dejected, angry... that is what the world will seem like.

If you are happy, the world will seem to be a paradise.
