Self reflection is a beautiful gift which can help to ground us in our own reality. By pausing and wondering for just long enough our minds can become beautifully smooth, like the surface of a perfectly still pool, and we can make out our own faces and hearts shining back at us.
The tendency is of course to keep going, to strive forwards towards an imagined goal, a goal which will bring fulfilment….but of course we never actually reach the goal. It teases us, always leading us on into the perfect future, like a rainbows end. Pausing and reflecting on how things actually are in this moment will release us from the eternal hunger of imagined future happiness. That happiness is here already, smiling back at us from the reflected depths of our souls.
The true magic mirror lies within each of us, allowing us to see our own beautiful truths. Enjoy today and yourself just as you are, because that’s already enough and brimming over with infinite beauty.
