Okay, now don’t laugh here but I’ve been frequently compared (by family and a few friends) to the Oracle from the Matrix (The lady in the video clip I assume you’re watching). And there are some similarities. I wear glasses (now) and I smile a lot just like she does. I have an easy going attitude about life.
I bake cookies just like the Oracle (makes me feel good and everybody loves ’em). I’m always spouting quotes, like her, and for whatever the rationale I seem to have a bit of a knack for knowing what’s going to happen in the future.
On the downside. I don’t smoke (she does). I’m not a computer program (although I like the thought of it – no uncomfortable emotions to be dealt with.). And I would never have beads hanging in a doorway, ever! Having said that, I’ll be happy to accept the other comparisons, kinda cool, actually I’m flattered!
Here, take a cookie, by the time you’ve finished it you’ll feel right as rain! Oh, and know thyself!
Have a great weekend, explore your mind, especially the parts you keep hidden!
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
