This may be a bit “twisted”—-as my kids would say.
I mean, how is it that I am able to “look” down on myself—-without “feeling” down on myself?
There is an old wisdom that says that the essence of who we are is that part within us that is able to observe ourselves, observing ourselves.
It is kind of like our own internal, kinky, 24/7, mini-cam in our mind’s eye. We usually only have fleeting moments of this ability, and one of the difficult things to understand about it is that as soon as we become aware of it, we are once again not behind the camera. But, when we are “in that moment,” it is a truly fulfilling experience—-not unlike looking at a sunset, smelling a baby’s head, or eating a nice bowl of chicken noodle soup when one is sick.
So how is it that I am able to look down on myself without feeling down on myself?
I trust that when I look in the mirror in the morning I will know the answer.
Why would anyone put mirrors on their Bathroom ceiling anyway?
