Other people are not a source of peace or happiness,

but something deeper – an experience of ourselves.

And yet, without other people,

we may not source peace or happiness.

  1. Yes…those outside us are like “mirrors” of our own shining souls…. So it is in others we can appreciate all that is already inherent in us, but we were not able to source /see independently… Wonderful wisdom here!– peace and love, RL


    • Exactly! 🙂
      And sometimes we don’t want to see what is reflected back – these are the bits we avoid looking at while alone, and these are the bits that will lead us towards peace and happiness. But you’ve got to fight yourself. In my experience anyway…
