Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. Yes, our world mirrors who we are back to us. For every action there is always and without fail, a consequential reaction.
When we get upset by something outside of us, our reaction kicks in. The reaction is most often a reflection of our inner state of ‘beingness’. It shows us that we have an inner wound to be healed.
Just as we can be unconscious of our wounds, we can also be unconscious of our strengths. If you are really drawn to the positive qualities in another person, you are being invited to own those same qualities in yourself. So being constantly aware is important in moving forward.
So too we find that the people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors reflecting their beliefs. What is meant by this is by way of an example is…. the critical thoughts you have of others are your own weaknesses too.
A relationship is 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 and who we really are.
