We could not see our faces or certain other areas of our bodies without a mirror.
Mirrors help us complete the picture. Long before there were cameras and drawings and paintings and human-made mirrors of glass, mirrors still existed.
Self-reflections in water was the first mirror. In water, humans found self-reflection and a way of seeing what otherwise could not be seen.
Likewise, the Preexisting Uncreated needed a mirror in order to fully know self in order to mature in understanding in order to evolve in order to continue the momentum of eternal life.
The mirror image of self in duplicate form, was the first step in this process. Using the mirror of self is a critical part of living life as intended. As we know by now, mirror is metaform is metaphor is trueprint is blueprint is allegory is any number of things previously explained.
As we now know, the Creator uses Many Mirrors. We are those Mirrors. Not just we as in humans, but We as in all of Creation.
Based on this understanding alone, I'm not sure how any of us humans could go through life and not try to look into as many mirrors as possible also – that is, if we are trying to be as the Creator.
Natural World MirrorsOf course we must look into original mirrors in order to know self. Mirrors created by the Creator, not mirrors created by humans. Natural world mirrors, natural world context, natural world worldview. As we look into natural world mirrors, we must simultaneously remain keenly aware that human mirrors have the highest potential to, not only present a partial reflection of self, but also present a distorted reflection of self. Clearly, most humans are relying on human mirrors which is the only way the world of human behavior can be so distorted.
So now I state the obvious; if we are relying on human-made and human-defined mirrors (ideologies) and humans as mirrors, we will lose sight of our true selves, almost all the time. This human-based mirror distortion is magnified and further complicated since we don't know what our complete image is in the first place. Therefore, we must assume believe the mirrors we use are accurate – telling us the actual truth about ourselves..
Therefore, human-based mirrors, although the least preferable of mirrors and the most questionable of mirrors, have become the most relied upon mirrors. Good grief!
A Little More SpecificOne of the clearest confusing distorting mirrors is religion.
Worst than that is the education provided by societies.
Equally worse is the ongoing education supplied by all the other forms of media in societies.
These three alone, account for the majority of the distorted views humans have of self, thus others, thus, even of the non-human natural world and even of humans from other Earths.
Most of the information we are basing our thinking on is distorted. Admit it. Then begin to fix it. Identity crisis leads to identity distortion leads to identity theft exacerbates identity crisis.
The prevalence of identity theft today didn't just start recently, it has been happening for thousands of warring years and is the last step in the process before all false notions of identity completely fall apart and in the ensuing movie-like panic, the natural world will be the new beginning. So if you are looking at yourself and others via human ideology mirrors without having a fundamental understanding via the metaphors of the natural world, you will be screwed up in your view of many many things, especially regarding who you are. Your self-esteem can't help but be misfigured.
Natural World Mirrors Require More Than Looking At ThemMany people look at the natural world and still get distorted views.
The first reason is due to the prevalence of miseducation summarized above.
The second reason is related to the same but requires special mention.
Looking at the natural world physically without also looking spiritually.I'll say it again. The Creator created an entire Universe of Mirror Images for the sole purpose to know self better than before. How many mirrors do we think it takes for us to achieve the same?
As explained elsewhere, all of our physical abilities are forms of eyes. These different eyes allow us to see things in different formats. Ears see sound vibrations. Eyes hear light vibrations.
We must combine the use of physical eyes with all forms of our two-truth-telling spiritual eyes in order to get an accurate self-refection when looking at natural world metaphor mirror images.
Because Universe is governed by Two Truths, each person is absolutely manifesting many forms of Two Truths. Each person contains a variety of Truths all mixed up and blended in one self. It's up to each person to try to find as many natural world mirrors as possible that correspond to each form of truth we possess. This continuous process will reveal what to do next.
