“Every man carries with him through life a mirror, as unique and impossible to get rid of as his shadow.”

(W.H. Auden, The Dyer’s Hand)

  1. Just as a mirror is indispensable for putting your face and hair in order, you need a mirror that reveals the depths of your life if you are to lead a happier and more beautiful existence.
    Buddhist saying

  2. I read that Erwin Blumenfeld thought without a mirror he would never have been able to achieve what he did ))

  3. We just HAVE to look, even though we already know… Wonder why…..
    I agree with Marcelo, we should look inside instead. 🙂

  4. Two images that touches the soul… Beautiful and strong.

    “But beyond the mind, beyond our thoughts, there is something we call the ‘nature of the mind’, the mind’s true condition, which is beyond all limits. If it is beyond the mind, though, how can we approach an understanding of it?

    Let’s take the example of a mirror. When we look into a mirror we see in it the reflected images of any objects that are in front of it; we don’t see the nature of the mirror. But what do we mean by this ‘nature of the mirror’? We mean its capacity to reflect, definable as its clarity, its purity, and its limpidity, which are indispensable conditions for the manifestation of reflections. This ‘nature of the mirror’ is not something visible, and the only way we can conceive of it is through the images reflected in the mirror. In the same way, we only know and have concrete experience of that which is relative to our condition of body, voice, and mind. But this itself is the way to understand their true nature.”
    (Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, Dzogchen: The Self-Perfected State)

  5. My dear Malin – thank you so much for seeing my images… and for giving me this wonderful piece of text, that I will read and read a lot!! (…smiling and smiling…)

  6. I remembered this poem

    to scrutinize the mirror
    In the mirror – EGO
    sees himself as OGE
    assuming that inverse
    as its name
    looks in the mirror
    and now sees again
    U.Kozioł-polish poetry

    smiling at you
