WISE REFLECTION

WISE REFLECTION

Greed, Hatred, and Delusion.
Now where have I seen that recently?
Well yes, the usual suspects.
But also in the bathroom mirror.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. This one merits serious reflection.

  2. Humble Nature, Ocean of LOVE, Fantastical Reality
    Through the Mirror of Negativity much can be seen
    But on the flip side of seeing so much negativity
    Is the blinding possibility of the other side of existing

    Perfect Pride, Humble LOVE, Unshakable TRUTH

    I find I love my reflection so much more when I view it through that lens.

    • It comes to us far more readily to see greed, hatred, and delusion in others than in ourselves, I think.

      • I think we use others as mirrors for our self. As in we are seeing in others that which we don’t wish to see in ourselves. So as long as one is guilty of “seeing” these things in others, they are likely equally guilty of “being” these things within themselves. Knowing that the reflection you see in others is truthfully the judgement of the self might awaken the reality that we are what we think we are.
