Two mirrors

We always carry with us two mirrors. One of them is the one hold for ourselves, the one we see ourselves with, everyday when we wake up. It holds the same old face at the same old place.

The other mirror is the one we hold up, reflecting off others. If we are not careful this mirror will distort the mirror we used to see ourselves with. And when an angry person’s image is reflected off the mirror, we see it and thinks that, that is the our reflection. and allows ourselves to reflect anger in kind.

What happens is that the mirrors we hold for ourselves and for others might not be well cleaned. we might not see our own reflection clearly. We think that we might have a mole on our nose, when it is actually a dirt on the mirror. and others, seeing themselves off the dirty mirror we hold for them, might not see that they have a beautiful soul, all they see off our mirror is a craggy dirty looking person, not knowing that it is the mirror which is dirty not the person.

So we need to know which mirror we are holding up, and which one are we looking into. if we look into the one we hold for others, we might see an angry face thinking that that is us, being angry, If we are angry and our mirror reflects that, and we showed it to other people, they might react in an angry manner.

So we are our own walking mirror, sometimes we see other’s reflection in us, and sometimes we reflect our own being off others, who themselves are walking mirrors. so in this reflection off reflection off reflection, who is the real you really looking at?
