Mirror Mirror

I wonder if the mirrors lie to us

That face we see in front of us

Is it really what we look like

Or just a fictitious character created by our thoughts?

But aren’t our thoughts either polluted or nourished?

Polluted with other people’s criticisms

Or nourished with other people’s adorations

But it is those lingering thoughts which determine whether we’ll flourish

Whether our mind has been polluted or nourished

Whether the mirror tells lies or truths

What remains is nothing but the truth set within us

For the only real mirror is what we silently say to ourselves when no one is watching.

~ Atina

When you look in the mirror.. are you really looking at yourself?
