Reflection 64

Welcome!


The Real Self


Her mind pondered on gravely and intently, thinking to herself, “Well – there you are again, you curious creature!” It was indeed a fierce mania of Mary’s to stare into her own eyes at the looking-glass. She did it as a rule more angrily than with any other feeling; and, when she did it, she always thought of the self that looked back at her there as something quite different from the self she was conscious of really being. Her real self didn’t seem to have eyes or nose, or mouth! Her real self seemed compounded out of pure ether and totally independent of bodily form. (A Glastonbury Romance by John Cowper Powys)

The whole body will become like a mirror: it will become all eye and spiritual substance. Rumi

The Buddha Mind, unborn and marvellously illuminating, is like a bright mirror. A mirror reflects whatever is in front of it. It’s not deliberately trying to reflect things… Likewise, when the object being reflected is removed, the mirror isn’t trying not to reflect it, but when it’s taken away it doesn’t appear in the mirror. The Unborn Buddha Mind is just like this. Bankei
