Reflection: I see me in you.

Reflection of the mountain in the water.

When the water is still, reflections are very vivid. It looks almost as if the mountain is actually in the water. As a matter of fact, if I were to flip this image upside down, you may not be able to tell the difference. Look below!

Can you see the difference?

What is all of this reflection really about? Who do you see when you look in the water? Is it the water that is tall, majestic, and covered in snow? Or is it the mountain? Well, if the mountain is what we see than how could we possibly see the water for what it truly is? The water always reflects an image of its surroundings. It is not possible to fairly judge the water’s image without first judging the image in the water.

What does this mean?

Consider a quote from John A. Standford, “If we judge others, it is because we are judging something in ourselves of which we are unaware.”

Do you get it now?

Be careful when you judge others because you may also be judging yourself. The words that you use can offer life or death. If you must judge, choose your words wisely. And always take time to reflect on yourself, since you are most likely judging characteristics of yourself.

Post inspiration: Wisdom Quotes

The wise person does not say much, but when he speaks his words offer wisdom to those who listen. The listener is just as wise as the wise person speaking.

The fool speaks loud and confident; however, his words offer no meaning to life. The listener is just as foolish as the fool speaking.
