  1. I find it to be a nice quote as it compares our minds to nature: peepal tree, lightning, and the elephant. It is true that the peepal tree does not remain steady because it goes through the life cycle of growing from a seed into a tree and also losing and regrowing its leaves. Lightning does not remain steady because the process of forming lightning has requirements. Here in the US we only see lightning when there is a thunderstorm. For it to remain steady it would need to continuously rain here and also meet the other requirements. An elephants ears cannot remain steady because of their size, vibrations within the ear, and the flapping of their ears. The cloth of the flag that is hung outside does not remain steady when it gets blown by the wind, weathered on by the different seasons, and also torn by its olding age. Comparing the objects mentioned in the quote gives a fresh perspective on saying how the mind cannot remain steady. And how can the mind remain steady when there are different states of emotions, pleasures/displeasures, attachments/disattachments, etc. There are too many variables in our everyday lives for our mind to remain steady. But along this spiritual journey to reaching the Divine Lord himself our minds need to remain steady of mediation, love, and devotion for Bhagawan Swaminarayan.
