All of us have hidden parts within us. These are the things about ourselves that we do not see -- our haunting darkness and our illuminating light. We often hide from our own flaws. But we also can hide from our own undeveloped talents and vital spirit. Most of us would like to discover a more whole and complete self. To do this, we must clearly see the accurate reflection of ourselves in the people and objects around us. What it takes is to discover our unseen but true reflection in the cosmic mirror. The people and objects that surround us are powerful but unseen mirrors. We can use them to better identify our innermost self, and we can use them to better grasp what keeps our dreams just out of reach.
With clear illustrations to help you, A View from the Cosmic Mirror presents a powerful new tool for your personal evolution. It can help you experience a greater sense of wholeness. This book lifts the unseen veil to a more enlightened and life-affirming view of you. It can be your introduction to the endless possibilities of a more engaging and fulfilling life. Come join us. Begin your journey down a new path ... read more.
"Nothing is so difficult
as not deceiving oneself."
~ Ludwig Wittgenstein
"Everything that we see is a shadow
cast by that which we do not see."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
"If we do not fashion for ourselves a picture of the world,
we do not see ourselves either, who are the faithful reflections of that world.
Only when mirrored in our picture of the world can we see ourselves in the round."
"Only in our creative acts do we step forth into the light and see ourselves whole and complete.
Never shall we put any face on the world other than our own,
and we have to do this precisely in order to find ourselves."
~ Carl Jung
"When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits,
I dreamed of changing the world.
As I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not
change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to
change only my country. But it, too, seemed immovable.
As I grew into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt,
I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me,
but alas, they would have none of it.
And now as I lie on my deathbed, I realize:
If I had only changed myself first,
then, by example I would have changed my family.
From their inspiration and encouragement,
I would then have been able to better my country, and
who knows, I may have even changed the world."
~ from the tomb of an Anglican bishop
in the Crypts of Westminster Abby
