“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
It is funny how some words carry the meaning all along, and we don't see it, or don't see it all, or don't see it rightly... Because "it is only with the heart that one can see rightly", right? :-) While yet, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"...
And yet, at other funny times, it only takes a different perspective to look at things - or simply read the word sdrawkcab<- so as to get it all... :-)

Through the (mirror) reflection of Love, we Evolve!
Yes, we do! Big time!
Because it is through the mirroring reflection of the others that we see ourselves.
It is through the others that we get to know who we are.
"You are all in the process of defining yourselves. Every act is an act of self-definition. If you are pleased with how you have created yourself, if it serves you, you will continue doing so in that way. If you are not, you will stop. This is called evolution."
The people we love, those that are closest to us, are our greatest "mirror"! And thus, the greatest Gift for us!
What we love about the other, we love about ourselves.
What we fight about the other, we actually fight about ourselves.
What we are able to acknowledge in the other, we are able to see in ourselves.
This is how we evolve - through the "mirror" of the other we are able to (re)discover and (re)create ourselves the way we choose to. By accepting and embracing the other as they are (letting go of our judgement), thus embracing ourselves. Or by accepting the way we are, thus embracing the other.
I see you <=> I see me.
Who are you grateful for having in your life?
What is it that you see in them?
What are you grateful for?
Happy St. Valentine's... for days on end!
