Believing the Mirror

Believing the Mirror

It is startling news
That we deceive ourselves
In what we know
And have known
About who we really are..
Many eyes roll in the
Hearing of this news..
How could it be..?
That the person we see
In our bathroom mirror
Is an illusion that we
Have believed so long..
And most walk away
Staying with the message
Of the mirror.. each our own way
Trip over the ancient deception
Denying our Freedom...

"You have to begin to identify with the real Self. You have to begin to let go of all the false beliefs, conceptions, dogmas, and be yourself. Be the Self you've always been. Be the Buddha. Be Krishna. You have that quality deep within you. Wake up. Do not let calamity rule you any longer. Know your Self. Do not use the mind to react to conditions. Learn to be the observer."
~ Robert Adams (20th century American Advaita mystic)
