What is the reflection of life ?

“Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it” Ernest Holmes

We see the world not the way it is,we see it the way we want it to be.

In other words,life is nothing but reflections of your thoughts.

So these thoughts are coming from inside of you and thus you want to change the world the way your thoughts are processing.

What is the end result ?

My friend this is the reason for all of your troubles, right now you are facing,because you are not willing to accept the world as it is and instead busy in forcing your copied ideas on others along with comparisons resulting in unhappiness.

This is where awareness of self reflection becomes important,

What is self reflection ?

Self reflection is nothing but self introspection.

The problem with all of us is that we maintain a ‘Double Standard’.

Here Mulan’s quote is apt (Mulan is a 1998 animated action adventure film)

“Why is my reflection someone I don’t know?” Mulan

What exactly she is trying to say ?

Mulan asks you to look at her because she wants to show you the difference between her outside image and her inside image.she feels that her reflection is not at all same compared to her inside which,is not brave or successful. (snazzygirl96)

She realizes that her reflection is a complete stranger.She knows that it is ‘she’ as far as her inside is concerned,but reflection belongs to somebody else.Here we notice her frankness.

But we are not that frank.

We respect and adore only the external appearance.

We fail to notice the wonderful,sweet personalities which reside inside every person.

Simply put, how often we look at mirror and realize our inside is different from what is shown ?

“The journey into self-love and self-acceptance must begin with self-examination. Until you take the journey of self-reflection, it is almost impossible to grow or learn in life.” Iyanla Vanzant

Once you understand yourself better,life becomes easy for you.

Social media & You

With the advent of social media,you have lost control of your sacred life and your inner instincts.

You always wish to be like some one else rather than true to yourself.

You are busy mimicking,comparing and ending up in whining.

End result-You are never happy and you die crying unhappily.

How to know what is inside you ?
