Plain glass-reflection

Does making a reflection of our life a daily habit … a good thing?

Most of the time we try to reflect on ourselves.

Some say it’s good and some say it’s not worth spending the energy.

Who is our cruellest opponent?

It’s said reflection allows our brain to pause so that we are in a better position to interpret our experiences for a suitable future prediction.

My point is the brain is not allowed to rest from thoughts, hence the tendency to give wrong directions most of the time.

“Sometimes people don’t get sick from bacteria or a virus- -living organisms alien to the human body- -but from the human brain itself. Our brains can be our worst enemy, our cruellest opponent.”
Buket Uzuner

How often do you admire your beauty in the mirror?

I have noticed this human tendency, everybody looks into the mirror whenever they come across a mirror or shining glass, where ever they are located and admire themselves.

The mirror in the restrooms is always busy with the users,

Who are the vainest?

Men or women?

I know you, my friend, your quick answer is women.

You are wrong.

Men admire their reflection 23 times a day, while women just 16 times. Check this link

Mirror, mirror on the wall MEN are the vainest of them all

Sunrise or Sunset?

Always difficult to say unless the photographer reveals the truth.Here you can see the reflection of Sunset in the architecture glass building.

Sunsets are always beautiful.The golden bright shining color is mesmerizing.

“When the sun is setting, leave whatever you are doing and watch it.” Murat Ildan

Sun set Reflection in the glass
“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.” Joe Walton

Watching the Sunset is more peaceful as the Sun descends below the horizon and one is in awe because of the romantic shades of the various colours particularly orange and red.

Reflection teaches us

“By three methods, we may learn wisdom:

First, by reflection, which is noblest;

Second, by imitation, which is easiest;

And third, by experience, which is the bitterest.”  Confucius

While Sunset symbolizes the ending of the day,it also brings promise of Hope.

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 ?


“Behavior is the mirror in which everyone shows their image”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

We are all One, But Many

One God, many faces.

One family, many races.

One truth, many paths.

One heart, many complexions.

One light, many reflections.

One world, many imperfections.


We are all one,

But many.
