Reflection – The Spiritual Selfie of Your Soul
When a bullet is fired from a gun, its trajectory is determined primarily by the skill and aim of the person shooting it, and a bit less by the physics and mechanics of the firearm, i.e., inertia, wind, grains in the slug, caliber of the firearm, etc. Consequently, the degree of success that is realized by the bullet as it hits its intended target is one of repetition, focus and technique.
The same logic applies to our lives. In finance, we regularly review our investments and insurance to determine if we are “on target”, realizing expected benefits and whether any changes are necessary. In our homes, we regularly review the condition and level of maintenance required to maintain the foundation, exterior and related surroundings. In our jobs, we regularly review our level of satisfaction and accomplishment, along with our compensation.
Collectively, in most aspects of our physical lives, we recognize, value and act upon the need to regularly assess various aspects of it; all with the end-game of leveraging our success, objectives and “happiness”.
In the larger mosaic of our spiritual and eternal lives, which, by the way, are astronomically greater in importance than our physical lives, most of us pay precious little attention and time to the care and feeding of our spirit and soul. Enter reflection.
“Reflection is little more than a feedback mechanism, however, it not only provides valuable information, it stimulates further and deeper analysis and thought, and it sharpens our spiritual focus and technique; and exactly like any physical accomplishment, improves with repetition.”
The proverbial Elephant in the Room, then, is poignantly, “Why do we not spend more time reflecting on our spiritual being?” As essential to our true well-being as an awakened, aware and sensitive soul has proven, it is largely neglected by most people in a chronic fashion. It is in effect, treated like a pair of socks that are stuffed into our dresser drawer and closed, only to be opened when the drawer requires cleaning or in the event we are searching for an item we cannot find.
Reflection, is that Spiritual Selfie that should be as popular and recognizable as the selfie on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. It can be distilled down to core values, priorities, initiative and responsibility. Much like our personality and character are developed in waves or a building block scenario, our souls likewise develop and mature via focus, technique and repetition; the precise outcome of reflection.
Let’s reflect on that for more than a moment, shall we?
Life is complex. Let your inner Light illuminate the world. Choose to be who you are meant to be inside. You are Beautiful! Be well.
One last question…. Who Are You?
