What would that be like? Some things would surely change. Like:
We may want to challenge ourselves to go a weekend without looking in a mirror. Would be interesting for many. Cover those mirrors with material.
But your REAL mirror is your LIFE—in truth your life is revealed not by a mirror reflection, but by what you see reflected back as you move through your days, weeks and months. How you react to what you see and hear; what you notice among a myriad of stimuli, what you are attracted to or repelled by, is all mirroring your inner state. We all experience the same events differently. Our memories change over time, and we feel different emotions from the same stimuli. That is because our perception is forming our experience and our perception is a manifestation of our consciousness.
By observing your life, stepping back and witnessing from your inner-self or inner-guidance, you can learn how to change what is reflecting back to you. For instance:
By questioning our thoughts, we become aware of what we notice, what we out-picture, and how it is affecting us and thus change our lives.
A happy person lives in a pleasant world. An unhappy person lives in a world of struggle.
The world becomes the mirror of our internal conversation.
