You look into a lake and see yourself; your reflection.|
You see yourself, but you have to somewhat see
what isn't there, and filter out what is,
in order to truly perceive what you are.
You, are the source of the image, your mind is the lake,
and your reflection is how you view yourself.
Your image starts clear and pure, but your mind distorts it; sees what isn't there,
and filters out what it doesn't want to see.
Therefore the way you interpret yourself
is distorted from reality,
and you think you are what you are not.
The truth is, in order to find genuine inner peace,
you must first see yourself, and not your reflection.
