If all the world is but a mirror,
what value do I place upon the reflection?
I am sure we have all heard the saying that our world mirrors us in some ways.
I think this is true, but we are each responsible for having the initiative and awareness for engaging with those reflections that are most aligned with the Higher Truth.
I write this, because recently I found myself (again) caught up with the distorted projections and perceptions of another.
Their projections and perceptions of me are not true, not in the least. YET, I will spend an INORDINATE amount of time trying to “correct” the perceptions.
The perceptions are false.
They say more about the other person than they do about me.
But, there I am, working merrily along, trying to “show” them they are wrong.
In engaging in this manner, I am giving validity to the projection.
None of us need to live out the false projections of others, who are simply demonstrating their own wounded-ness and sense of lack.
When we attempt to engage with these projections, it never goes well, because the projections are not real and thus have no substance.
In so many ways, others can only tell us about themselves – by the words they choose.
If the world is a mirror, choose wisely what part of that mirror you look into. May it be the shiny, pure portion in which you see your best self.
