“If you ever doubt your own reason for being –
Intelligence – is the light that must never be allowed to go out!
Even during the pure existence of doing and learning – thinking and being,
each of us still holds the “key” to life itself.
The key is in your hand!
Your reason for being –
to open any door you can to enrich and educate humanity!”

Love, hope and prayers to all those for their loss and struggles in the Philippines!
Such an interesting turn of phrase “mirror image” as compared to … oneself. More incongruous than the image appears (visually speaking), we (humans) always tend to “see” more than what is really visible to the naked eye.
Still, the person on the outside looking at the same person (on the inside of a mirror) has the distinct advantage of being seen in a two dimensional platform – which is, of course, never the actuality of life.
Wading deeply through the stream of reality, I could look down at life’s liquidness and see my own mirror image reflected in the fluidity of all life as it swirls around me. Ebbing waves of ‘this or that’ moment of experience exhibiting – all that I appear to be.
But I rarely do – look. I selfishly do not stop the train of thought, (my personal perception of life experiences) and indeed my ability to continue on with an absorption, immersion and captivation of life which I find quintessential to my own well being and improvement.
In summation, a true mirror image of self might be viewed as a matrix where each new bit and piece and layer of the “who I am” rearranges and renews – at will, (my ‘true image’ being of constant change) – as it should, because with each subsequent change I become more of who I truly am.
life’s true potential
mirrored in streaming nature
from dream to reality
