I found this poem and I'd thought I just wanna share it to you as the new year comes...I think you may agree with me here that we all need to have a self-reflections..


SELF REFLECTIONS


Look within!... The secret is inside you. Most true happiness comes from one's inner life, from the disposition of the mind and soul. One of the greatest moments in anybody's developing experience is when he no longer tries to hide from himself but determines to get acquainted with himself as he really is.

Many perceptions is that people desperately need depth conveyed in a Simplistic manner that they can grasp and use in their daily living.” The context is a conversation between us about the journey each person faces in moving out of individual shadows.

We are being asked to understand that the people we know and meet in our life, are our mirrors. They reflect back to us the parts of ourselves that we would not normally see. They show us the parts of ourselves that we have ignored, and are in need of our attention. The way we treat others in regard to what we see in them, is a reflection of how we are treating that part of ourselves. As we treat them with disrespect, we are indeed treating ourselves with disrespect. As we dishonor them for what they are reflecting for us, we are indeed dishonoring the part of ourselves being reflected. As we bring love & respect to these parts within us, we will feel love & respect for those outside of us. The people in our lives play a very important role for us. They help us to see & understand all the aspects of ourselves. They deserve our love, respect & honor for their role in our lives.

Life is a series of choices. How we choose to respond to life, determines our path. We have the choice to react in fear, or to react in love. In a state of fear, we see our choices as limited. In a state of love, we know our choices are unlimited.

Retire into yourself as much as possible. Associate with people who are likely to improve you. Welcome those whom you are capable of improving. The process is a mutual one. People learn as they teach.

When you meet anyone,
Remember it is a reflection of Self.
As you see them, you will see yourself.
As you treat them, you will treat yourself.
As you think of them, you will think of yourself.
Never forget this, for in them you will find yourself or
Lose yourself.
