You look fine
There are far too many of us who look in the mirror and hate our reflection in it. Have you watched a baby or little child look at a reflection of itself and seen happiness it displays? As though it was meeting someone dear and precious. That’s how we all felt before the outside world began to impinge on our own sense of self-worth and began to make dents in our simple joy of accepting our self-image.
Have you tried the mirror experiment? In which you stand in front of the mirror and gaze into your own eyes. It is reported that a lot of people cannot do it for more than a few seconds. Maybe they have internalised society’s messages of how fat / thin, fair / dark, unattractive, ugly, unacceptable they look. And they look at themselves through that filter and thus cannot see themselves as they really are. But even those of us who love and accept our self-image sometimes have moments when we look at ourselves and don’t like what we see.
And, what do we actually see? If we got past how our body looks or how we look in our skin and gazed into our own eyes, wouldn’t we see the glorious human being that we are? Somewhere beneath the layers of shame, guilt, anger and misgiving, wouldn’t we see our own pure soul gazing back at us? With unconditional love and acceptance.
And, that is the truth! We are not what the filters of society tell us. We are not what the media tell us we should be in the process of insidiously trying to sell us their products by instilling shame in us. We are divine beings and our true state is that of pure love.
So, go on, look in the mirror and love yourself back! There is only a false belief standing in your way.
