Question: If undivine thoughts come while I am meditating, should I invoke peace or try to fight them off?Sri Chinmoy: At that time you have to invoke light. If there is only one fly, we can try to cast it aside. But if there are many flies, how are we going to chase all of them? We have to remain silent. When undivine thoughts come, light is necessary, not peace. When the light illumines all the undivine thoughts, immediately you will get peace of mind.
