Our Inner Mirror Leading Us Home

Psychic mirror, the soul
Reflecting all you are
All you have been, and
All you can ever become

It reflects what’s most important to you
Not your parents, children, friends, or anyone else
Reflecting perfectly what you need to know
To find your way home

We lose our way
When we forget
To look in our mirror
Reminding us who we are

In life, there’s nowhere to go
Despite what we might think, no destination
Every place, exactly the same
Every thing, all part of one

Look if you will outward, upward, beyond
Eventually your eyes fall back on the mirror
There you always find yourself, complete, without separation
And there you find your way home

  1. Gautami: Remember you already have everything you need to find your way, and if you are like me, it is a lifetime journey that teaches what we need most to learn. Everything we encounter in life — joy, sadness, opportunity and problems — is brought into place by our soul and its desire for us to align to it’s path.

    Thanks Lahari. Indeed the poem does have a soul.

  2. Thanks Dan. No, you’re right!

    Nasra: Hey! So good to hear from you. You ARE already on your path. Just as I said to Gautami, our path is all one with our entire life. No separation from what we have been, what we are and what we become. Trust and just put one foot in front of the other in the desert sand. Home is wherever you are now! That is home.

    Jel: This is a special type of mirror that ONLY reflects your God-like beauty. This mirror is different than others.
