Reflections of self: An Angel Message

It's 52 degrees--chilly here today.  The warm sun and the cold water united in a smoky mist rising up from the lake.  A pair of Muscovy ducks were sipping water in their morning reflection.  The view brought to mind an older blog on reflections of self.   

Several years ago while on a mini-vacation, the hot sun reflecting off the waves sent me dashing across the street for an inexpensive pair of sunglasses.  I'd misplaced my good pair.  
The selection at the souvenir shop was slim and I grabbed a pair of of silver mirrored sunglasses without giving it much thought. When I got back to the beach Elliot grinned, not fond of the style.  "Where did you get those?"

"Watch what you say!" I laughed.  "You can't see me, you're talking to yourself in the mirrored lens!"

The sunglasses became a funny teaching tool as I wondered what if my own thoughts were so easily reflected back to me when talking with others?  What I said to them I was saying to myself first.  I recalled a quote about this from the past. 

"Faults found in others are reflected first in self."  
                                        -- Edgar Cayce

Elliot and I had fun, bantering back and forth, wearing the sunglasses and making dramatic faces.  I was left with the impression to pay attention.  Do you know what your face is doing?

The next morning, my Yogi teabag tag brought a smile.

that the other
person is you.

It turns out, the glare of my own reflection is what I need the most protection from when basking in my ego's limelight. 

Enjoy your day with the  angels. I hope I remember to do a face check every now and then throughout the day. Love is reflected in love.

Love and blessings,
