“We live in a house of mirrors and think we are looking out the windows.”~ Fritz Perls.
How do you see yourself when you look in the mirror? Do you feel happy, confident, satisfied? Or troubled, distraught and withdrawing? Who is looking back at you? Who are you looking for? Whether we know it or not, on some level all of us seek ourselves. We try to find out who we are, our strengths, our weaknesses, our limitations and yet in the process we fail to realize that we simply are creating ourselves rather than finding out who we are.
We all have our own set of beliefs, ideas, thoughts, attitudes and values; our own knowledge and way of living our individual life. How we think, feel and do about these principles we hold can change our lives for the better or for worse. If we just pay attention on how we perceive ourselves and our surroundings we begin to see how and why things worked out, working out now or how they would work out in the end this way.
Take a moment and just see the world as it is. Feel every life that is in your body and be at one with yourself. See life as reflecting back ourselves and not merely the results of life events and people we have met. “We live in a house of mirrors and think we are looking out the windows.” This sentence is talking about how we perceive ourselves and our surroundings. Because we are so confined and succumbed to our own realities of life we fail so much in looking at what really matters and what not.
Discovering ourselves is the best journey we can embark upon. By managing how we think and feel we are able to harvest a powerful force that makes us responsible, self-aware individuals. It will bring about consciousnesses, empowerment and change. Realize that love comes from within. As we learn to look in the mirror rather than fixate our vision in the window we begin to see the truth and only in this way can we truly let our authentic self shine through.
“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.” ~ Lao Tzu
