you ever noticed how the wind animates itself through the rustling
leaves? We can’t see the air. We only know of it’s presence by the way
it dances with the trees as wind. Air inspires the wind – yet it is NOT
the wind – it is simply the outward reflection of it. I find this a
powerful metaphor to describe the consciousness of the soul…
Consciousness has an intangible presence. It can first be seen by
it’s outward effect, as it expresses itself through the soul. If
consciousness is like the air, then the soul would be the wind.
Everything we see is a reflection
Our soul animates the world around us, in the same way a willow tree
quivers when the wind blows. EVERYTHING we see outside is an animation
created by our internal state of consciousness. What we see and feel, is
like a gigantic cosmic mirror, reflecting back this exact state of
The purpose is so that we can self realise, or ‘see ourselves’. Once
we realise that everything outside of us is just a reflection of our
internal state of being, it opens up a whole new world of insight. This
insight, can show us exactly where our constrictions and blockages are.
If we are willing to look at these with openness, then our possibilities
of spiritual and evolutionary growth sky rocket. By seeing that the
outer world is a reflection, we can embrace what it means to be a fully
soul-embodied human, whilst releasing the blockages that unleash our
full evolutionary potential.
The view from the mountain
The reflection we see unfolds through many levels, depending on which
altitude of the spiritual path we are looking from. It’s somewhat like
climbing a mountain. There are times when you look at the detail, the
rocks, the flowers, the dew on the grass along the journey; but the
higher you climb, the more of an expansive view you are also able to
It’s a continual process of walking the spiritual path. First we
discover basic tenets of humanness, such as physicality and
emotionality. Further along the road, we begin to unveil our spiritual
nature and then realising that we are even beyond that. Eventually we
embody and live it fully.
We all have our own mirror
Have you ever wondered why twenty people could be in exactly the same
situation, yet each tell a completely different story? This is because
for each one, there is something unique to be experienced. It doesn’t
mean that one person is right and another is wrong either. Each person
is right in the sense that the external mirror is reflecting back to
them EXACTLY what they need to see. If we are open and honest with
ourselves, we can interpret what we see. Again, what we can actually
see, depends on how far we have climbed on the spiritual path, how high
the vantage point is on the spiritual mountain. We can always see what
we need to see, enough to shed a layer or two; This unraveling keeps us
traveling on the path. Each layer that we shed allows us to rise to a
When we look in the mirror of the outer world, our vision is filtered
by the layers we’ve built up; the layers we need to shed. But remember
that the filter that we see through is our greatest treasure – it
contains the gifts to truly set us free.
“A small boy looked at a star and began to weep.
The star said, ‘Boy,
why are you weeping?’
And the boy said, ‘You are so far away I will
never be able to touch you.’
…The star answered, ‘Boy, if I were not
already in your heart, you would not be able to see me.’”
It can be difficult to believe that EVERYTHING is a reflection. It is
challenging to comprehend this with the ‘belief laden mind’ that
‘imprisoned’ our consciousness in the first place! That’s why the
external mirror doesn’t really mean anything until we have woken up (Gateway 1).
When we wake up, we begin attuning to Unity Consciousness. We see the
consequence of our actions and stop blaming the outside world for
everything that we don’t like. We look within and realise that our
perception of the outside world changes as a direct consequence of how
we are being inside. When we awaken to Unity Consciousness, we
experience the interconnectedness of all things and see that ‘all I see
is part of me’ or as John Magliola so aptly put it…
“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.”
So when the outer mirror shows me something – I watch very closely. It contains the seeds of my spiritual growth; my evolution.
What do you see in the mirror?
