Looking into a blank mirror you can’t see your reflection. Might as well look into a black mirror. Life is a real mirror that you can use as you journey through life to greater wisdom, or one that you refuse to look beyond the ego into the real inner you. The ‘ego’ that keeps feeding your illusion of who you think you are afloat, one day will break the clear mirror of who you really are. Having nothing to hide behind is to be naked to who you really are. You’re wrong about everything you think you’re right about!
The shadow of truth isn’t the truth. Ever look into a clear mirror and see your shadow? When you look into that mirror do you see yourself, or what you have come to believe, but don’t know for sure? The crescent moon hides the full moon as does the ego that either sees the dark side of the moon or a false, reflective perspective of yourself shinning off the dark lake. Trying to grab a reflection is like trying to grab the moon. The ego is a self convincer of the false self. The mind of ego is but a reflector of a shadow that disappears in a moment of haste.
The fully ‘working mind’ is an illusion while the heart is tucked in the closet. Mind keeping your life afloat is an embarrassment to the real you that doesn’t need the strutting ego. Why vote yourself number one when there is nothing to compare it to but the illusions of the mind? The real dirt is not outside, but inside, in our hearts. We can wash all stains with water. The only one we can’t remove is the grudge and the bad intentions sticking to our hearts.
The heart can tell the ego that brings pain to go away, and let me be with life’s best answer for your journey. Be flexible for what you know from the mind, it can well be like bubbles in the sky, meaningless. Sell yourself to others with skillful means. Pretend to be from your heart if you can’t easily reach it, but only if you come from clear, compassionate, empathetic thinking. A crack in the heart is the beginning of letting in divine energy to cast the light around you and wherever you go.
I am the dust in the sunlight, I am the ball of the sun.
I am the mist of morning, the breath of evening.
I am the spark in the stone, the gleam of gold in the metal.
The rose and the nightingale drunk with its fragrance.
I am the chain of being, the circle of the spheres,
The scale of creation, the rise and the fall.
I am what is and is not, I am the soul in all…
