“The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors, reflecting their beliefs. So…relationship one of the most powerful tools for growth… If we look honestly at our relationships, we can see so much about how we have created them.”
~ Shakti Gawain, author “Living in the Light
To love beyond what we think we are capable of, we must move beyond our comfort level in how we see the people around us.
Every person we encounter, especially close family, friends, and lovers are mirrors to our own inner consciousness.
The people all around us are not accidental. They are not there by chance. Their presence in our lives is significant. Meaningful.
Think about it.
According to the U.S. Census’ World Population Clock, there are 7,057,396,234 people in the world right now. Wow! That’s a lot of people.
Mostly likely you will not meet them all. You are surrounded by a very small percentage of all of the people who exist in the world. These people have a similar demeanor, perspective, and outlook on life. Who they are mirrors who you are.
Even the people who frustrate and irritate you are your mirrors. They are in your life to show you who you are on some level. Listen to them. Look at them. For they are you.
Next time someone gets on your nerves, hurts you, or betrays you in some way, ask yourself, “Why is this person in my life? What part of me are they mirroring? Why?”
Don’t criticize or ridicule them. Seek to understand the lessons they are in your life to teach you. This is a much more peaceful way to live. Once you fully grasp this concept all of your relationships become an opportunity for you to see yourself clearer and become your best.
