Daily Nugget #129
the looking glass
more than just a mirror, right?
some would call it so
but to me
a looking glass is more subtle
i have noticed myself saying often
all of our relations
mirror back to us
what lies within.
this is always a tough thing to come to terms with.
when the name for this Nugget came thru loud and clear
i pondered first what it means to me.
i of course googled it.
then i heard what the forces that flow thru me
wanted to share
‘we are not looking in to a mirror but thru a looking glass.’
the looking glass that we look thru is the lens of our beliefs
coloring and flavoring
the experiences that we see before us.
thru our looking glass
we still DO see in others, ourselves.
they still DO show us the parts of us that are wounded
they still DO share with us our deepest fears
but it is not they
who are holding up a mirror
it is us
looking thru our looking glass.
