A mirror is a fascinating for a number of different reasons, but today's blog is about your world is a mirror.
And this is a concept that quite often spins people out.
So imagine there's a situation where we see an incident of some sort.
Maybe we see somebody laughing at something funny.
Maybe we see someone drop a cup of coffee.
Maybe we see a car crash.
Maybe you see a couple having an argument.
It doesn't matter but there's a situation that happens, an incident.
Now imagine that there's three people watching this incident, they all see it exactly the same thing.
The first looks at it and says that's the worst thing I have ever seen.
The second person looks at it and says that's the best thing I've ever seen.
Then the third person looks at it and says 'meh'.
Now they all saw exactly the same thing, but they all had 3 completely different reactions.
So where do the reactions or meanings come from.
This is where the world is a mirror part kicks in.
Because what they saw was themselves in the incident.
I can't remember who said this but there's a saying that goes "we don't see the world as it
is we see the world as we are."
That can be quite a confronting realisation to have for some people.
I remember the first time that I heard it, I kind of freaked out of it and really didn't understand.
It took me a number of years to get my head around it.
So the challenge is when you are seeing the world and it's having a an effect on you, you are seeing your reflection of yourself.
Now, here's the thing.
If you don't like what you see on the outside, how do you change it?
Most people will like do what I'm doing when I stand in front of mirror see the thing on the outside and try and change the outside.
So that's a bit like me going over to the mirror and trying to scratch off the glasses
from my reflection of me in the mirror (obviously i wear glasses).
Where as in effect, I can't change the reflection.
All I can do is change me.
So in this instance, I would have to take off my glasses.
So notice your world today and see things that you perceive on the outside is annoying you and think it’s something on the inside that you probably haven't owned about yourself yet.
Your world is a mirror.
