Self Reflection

A mirror reflection is a two dimensional world in three dimensions, reversed of course. We are so accustomed to it that we rarely pay attention to how complex it actually is, just like many other things in life. The brain I suppose perceives the general world in the most simplest way possible to begin with, so it can better focus on things that truly matter at that particular time. But when those seemingly irrelevant things in the world suddenly gain our attention and become relevant, mostly by coming in our way, we then dig deeper into their complexities and try to find answers. Just like we don't contemplate our own selves until something doesn't feel right. Right?

Self reflection, in other words.


(You mostly never care about a cyclone until you get hit by one. You mostly never care about your thoughts until they start upsetting you.)




You can dust off a mirror for clarity. Similarly, for clarity of your own self, you must dust off your deceptions and assumptions, all the lies you've told yourself of who you think you are.


I have been able to make the best out of self reflection by only being honest with myself to the best of my abilities, which obviously can get insanely tough!


Self reflection is impossible without honesty. Let's say you manage being truthful somehow, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Who knows what horrors or wonders honesty is going to bring forth? Perhaps that's the reason why most of us refrain from taking the effort of self analysis and end up finding ourselves in a mess during dire times. Had we understood ourselves a little better, we could manage ourselves more efficiently at such times.


When you find the courage within you to dive deeper into understanding yourself, it could unleash a huge amount of untapped potential within you as well as a revelation of things you don't really want to know. But then you confront them. Face every aspect of yourself, the good and the bad, try to master them and maybe then, stand a chance to be the best version of yourself.

It is okay to realise that you know nothing. That's a good start! If you can be honest in life, I think it is one of the biggest super powers you can have, for the world starts manifesting itself in response to your true self and not to a fake/adulterated copy of you. Honesty is pretty inconvenient in the short run, but life changing in the long run. All we need is, that little bit of courage (and sometimes a lot of it).
