“We live in a house of mirrors
and think we are looking out the windows.” ~ Fritz Perls
I was wondering for some time what this sentence means for me.
Then I realised it is about how we perceive ourselves and our surroundings – how we, sometimes, fail to see that life reflects us back to ourselves.
What I mean is that we often forget that world we look at out the window is actually a big mirror. Basically, we are looking at ourselves mirrored back to us by others and by the events of our life. Does that make any sense? I think I went a little bit too far with my philosophical thoughts again… In simplest sentence possible: the world you see is a reflection of yourself. Do you believe in it? I do.
Of course everything depends on how do you see The World out of the window… and everything that is related to it.
I think that once you are aware of how you see the reality (reflected by yourself and others) you keep in your hands this special treasure: deep knowledge about your inner self… And that, automatically brings empowerment, change, discovery and consciousness.
So here comes my question: tell me how wide is The World out of your window? And if it’s a happy place?
Before answering…open your eyes and open your mind… Without the colours of your past and the shadows of your fears…
