we live, but in a world of mirrors...

Buddha Mind
Picture Bhudda Mind kndly provided by h.koppdelaney
if you would know that you mirror the world around you and the world mirrors you,
you would know the secret of happiness itself

you mirror the world,
because whatever you surround yourself with you become...
does this not worry you?
that you surround yourself with images of violence, lust & greed...
does this not worry you?
of what you might become...

the world mirrors you,
no amount of wealth can buy you happiness or peace of mind,
what good is a castle if you cannot stand those in it, including yourself?
what good is wealth when you are constantly worried about losing it?
when you are at peace with yourself, the world is at peace with you, no matter what the external circumstances...
when you smile at the world, the world smiles back
when you live the truth, the world reflects truth back to you

we live, but in a world of mirrors...
if we know that, we know the mirrors are but a reflection of something else
something timeless, something beautiful, something unbelievable
and this something else is accessible only when you look behind the mirrors of the thoughts
