Imagine being in an empty room and one by one mirrors started to appear. Mirrors of all shapes and sizes. Mirrors that were individual tinted in either black, blue, grey, pink, red, green or yellow.
Imagine then, that whilst deciphering why you where in this room and how you got into this room, the mirrors began talking to you. Individually speaking words of love, kindness and encouragement, as well as words of doubt, harm, malice, jealousy and hatred.
Which words would you hear the loudest? Which words would make you laugh and which would make you cry? And now I ask you to reflect. Which words would you recognise, as words spoken to assist you in getting out of the room and, giving you the answers as to why you where in the room in the first place?
I have a situation at hand, right now as I write and whilst in reflection; calling on wisdom and love to guide me to better understand how I should handle it; I instantly came to understand that often times the people we are in contact with, though strangers or lovers they may be; act as our mirror; regurgitating and spitting out our joys, appreciations and likes as well as our fears, insecurities, secrets and self judgments.
I use the analogy of a room to depict any given circumstance or situation. We get ourselves into situations; wonder how we got there and then blame the people around us for the circumstances and inappropriate feelings the event has caused. When on the contrary we would be much better off in seeing ourselves, in the words and actions of these ‘people’; who in reality are our ‘personal assistants’ in the event at hand. We take for granted and often forget that we are all one and in this play called ‘life’, together. We also take for granted and forget that Our Creator designed ingenuous ways of communicating with us, through ourselves and others.
I use the analogy of mirrors, for when we look into a mirror we see ourselves; and so we must begin to practice, on our day to day interactions with others, to see them also as a reflection of ourselves. The mirrors in the room depict our friends, foes, strangers and lovers who spill words of love, hate, joy, pain, fulfillment and happiness; without even acknowledging the true essence and purpose of their feelings that have created such insightful words. Shall I repeat? The mirrors in the room depict our friends, foes, strangers and lovers who spill words of love, hate, joy, pain, fulfillment and happiness without even acknowledging the true essence and purpose of their feelings that have created such insightful words.
Our friends, enemies, strangers and lovers are the mirror image of our joys, appreciations and likes as well as our fears, insecurities, secrets and self judgments Say thank you to them all when they come. Love the good words and love the words that you may feel are negative.
To have people around you that offer malicious words and maybe even malicious actions is a clear sign; a mirror image stating that you must let go of the past fears, insecurities, secrets and judgments towards yourself and others. Do this and the malicious words, or should I rightly say inconvenient gifts from inconvenient people, lessen. By loving yourself, knowing yourself and your truth, putting yourself first and appreciating yourself and your story, you will only bring about a sense of pride, dignity, joy and confidence that is indestructible.
How long will you use the harsh words and actions from others as the excuse for your non progression, lack of motivation, low productivity, misfortune, poverty or sickness? When in reality all they are, are messengers, personal assistance, mirroring what Our Creator knows; that you will succeed in whatever it is you wish to do, be, see or know; once you get the message.
