Several years ago I playfully snapped a photo of our reflection while window- shopping downtown in historic Riverhead, New York.
I better understood a metaphysical concept by reflecting on that experience.
The bright light from the camera flash could only mirror light and trumped the image of my physical face.
A reflection can only mirror the exact actions of the one standing in front of it. Smile and a smile comes back to you. Make a frown and that's what's staring you in the face.
"Love is reflected in Love" Mary Baker Eddy writes in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
When you walk away from a reflection, your image does not linger behind. It was only a mirage with no power to act of itself. The real power lies not in the reflection, but in your True immortal being. The Light within goes with you wherever you are, superseding the density of your mortal body.
We are each forever a Child of the Light and that spiritual image is unchangeable, no matter what the illusion seems to be mirroring.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
Love and joyful blessings,
