One of the greatest desires of every human being is the longing to be seen. Deep within us is the longing to see ourselves and be seen as we really are. The poet Kathleen Raine says: “Unless you see a thing in the light of love, you don’t see it at all.” Only other people can see us totally and this can place a poignant burden on friendship as truthful reflection. There is a profound theory of spirituality to be written from the perspective of reflection. Reflection comes between us and every other person and object in the world. An object or person can be reflected in so many different ways. Yet the heart of an object or the essence of the heart can never be reflected. All faith and creativity is the hunger to cross over this frontier; it is the desire for pure and total encounter and belonging. Love is an affair between a reflection and its object. ~John O’Donohue
lift your face and feel sky reflected in your offering……
inquiry for today~ nothing today, but honest and sincere arriving……look into the day directly….receive your willingness to reflect back all that you notice…..
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. The universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you are already that ~Rumi
