Hehe, because you're looking into a mirror - and the world is different in the mirror. When you look into a mirror, the only way to communicate with
that person is by talking to yourself - and you don't learn anything new that you didn't already know before.
You must see yourself mentally, be able to look at yourself from your mind's eye. That's what's important. The person I see in the mirror doesn't
look like me, and the person I hear on tape records doesn't sound like me. This is because the way my mind hears and sees itself is different from
what is reflected back at me, because my mind is alive, and because the image in the mirror, and the sound on the tape recorder, is not alive.
Remember the phrase "do not point out the splinter in your neighbours eye, when you cannot see the log that is in your own". One of the things I
like doing now is to change words from the bible into a modern version, to better get across what it's saying. This is saying "do not judge others
until you judge yourself - if you were in their place you might have done the same". Whatever your position is, the best way to get through it is to
talk with some good friends - even if that means they might find out things about you that you wish they hadn't.
Talking with us on the internet - it's too impersonal for us to necessarily be good judges of what you're going through.
