[00:00.47]Mirror, Mirror—What do I See
[00:03.18]A loving person lives in a loving world.
[00:07.88]A hostile person lives in a hostile world.
[00:11.49]Everyone you meet is your mirror.
[00:14.77]Mirrors have a very particular function.
[00:17.40] They reflect the image in front of them.
[00:19.80] Just as a physical mirror serves as the vehicle to reflection,
[00:23.52] so do all of the people in our lives.
[00:26.80]When we see something beautiful such as a flower garden,
[00:30.19]that garden serves as a reflection.
[00:32.81]In order to see the beauty in front of us,
[00:35.33]we must be able to see the beauty inside of ourselves.
[00:39.27]When we love someone, it's a reflection of loving ourselves.
[00:43.53]We have often heard things like
[00:45.61]"I love how I am when I'm with that person."
[00:49.22]That simply translates into "I'm able to love me
[00:53.26] when I love that other person."
[00:55.67]Oftentimes, when we meet someone new,
[00:58.52] we feel as though we "click".
[01:00.37]Sometimes it's as if we've known each other for a long time.
[01:04.31] That feeling can come from sharing similarities.
[01:07.71]Just as the "mirror" or other person can be a positive reflection,
[01:12.19]it is more likely that we'll notice it
[01:14.30]when it has a negative connotation.
[01:16.71] For example, it's easy to remember times
[01:19.33]when we have met someone we're not particularly crazy about.
[01:22.72]We may have some criticism in our mind about the person.
[01:26.11] This is especially true
[01:27.64]when we get to know someone with whom we would rather spend less time.
[01:31.69]Frequently, when we dislike qualities in other people,
[01:35.30] ironically, it's usually the mirror that's speaking to us.
[01:39.04]I began questioning myself further each time I encountered someone
[01:43.08] that I didn't particularly like.
[01:45.27]Each time, I asked myself,
[01:47.09]"What is it about that person that I don't like?" and then
[01:51.47] "Is there something similar in me?" in every instance,
[01:55.08]I could see a piece of that quality in me,
[01:57.70]and sometimes I had to really get very introspective.
[02:01.75] So what did that mean?
[02:03.71]It means that just as I can get annoyed or disturbed
[02:07.21] when I notice that aspect in someone else,
[02:09.62] I better reexamine my qualities and consider making some changes.
[02:14.43] Even if I'm not willing to make a drastic1 change,
[02:17.28]at least I consider how I might modify some of the things that I'm doing.
[02:22.20]At times we meet someone new and feel distant,
[02:26.14] disconnected, or disgusted.
[02:27.99] Although we don't want to believe it,
[02:29.77]and it's not easy or desirable to look further,
[02:32.62]it can be a great learning lesson to figure out
[02:35.35]what part of the person is being reflected in you.
[02:39.18] It's simply just another way to create more self-awareness.
