The world is a mirror

My mirror reflects Life in all its fragility. 

A precarious balancing act.

It can be both a symbol of  physical reflection or throw light on our thoughts.

The truth reflected out of it at times seems so beautiful and sometimes hideous.

In mythology, Narcissus looked enraptured into the pool at his own image and could not take his eyes off. 

Lost in the pool was his distinction between the Real and the Illusory.

Look into the mirror and let it reflect the Ideal and our own Soul.

  1. It is very important to have belief in Him and in yourself to face life as it comes...so cheer up and smile and the mirror will reflect the same :)
