Monday Musings: Reflection

Everyone and everything that shows up in our life is a reflection of something that is happening inside of us.  – Alan Cohen

This quote expresses something I’ve been pondering quite a bit. We may want to understand why something unwanted shows up in our lives. Instead of always looking at something or someone external to blame, it might also be useful to look inside – into our mind, heart and soul. Although we may not understand the reasons behind everything that happens to us in life, we might find some useful answers there. It’s worth some contemplation.

Have a wonderful week, Tiny

Footnote: The picture above shows a part of the outer wall of the Dali Museum. The building itself (more on that in a later post), and the reflections in the windows are almost as surreal as the paintings inside 🙂

  1. This image is a mirage, just stunning, Tiny. And the quote, had me thinking as well, for there are certain things that do come along which are likened to sandpaper with me “reacting” saying, “Get away!” Hmmmmm….. those are the very things that are coming along to polish that inner pearl even more. Not that I think a lot as it is, but hey, ya got the juices running even more this morning, my friend. GRIN! Love, Amy

    1. I’ve found it useful to check the “internal barometer” for some of the answers I seek. As to the picture, I’ve more images in store from our trip yesterday. It’s truly an unusual and “artsy” place.

  2. I very much believe this, Tiny. Whether you call it Law of Attraction or Karma or something altogether different, the idea is the same: what you put out there is what you get back.

    1. I think we can get lots of answers this way, but also believe there will be things we simply cannot understand or get answers to. Simply because our earthly perspective is somewhat limited, at best.

    1. Thanks Eric! It’s about taking responsibility for the state of one’s own mind, heart and soul rather than playing the blame game.

  3. My personal belief is that the reflection is always at some level from something inside, and it’s often not easy to see…mentally or emotionally. Sounds like contemplation over a cup (or more!) of tea is in order.

    Looking forward to hearing more about the Dali Museum.

  4. Great picture that place is very interesting and I will be looking forward to seeing more of your pictures. I have been doing a lot of contemplating lately, but I still try to stand strong in changing those things that I can and not worry on those that I cannot. There is a lot our minds will never understand. Enjoyed this post sweet Tiny. Big hugs

    1. Thank you Mags! I know you will be strong, and given more strength as you need it. I will try my best to bring you interesting and inspirational reading from nature and other places. Sending you lots of love, my friend.

  5. How true. Great reminder, Tiny. “Everyone and everything that shows up in our life is a reflection of something that is happening inside of us.” And beautiful picture. Xo

Would love to hear your thoughts!
