Whatever I love about you, I also have in me,
Whatever I don't like about you, I also have in me.
How do I know?
Because I can only see it in you, if I already know it in me.
It's not possible to see things in others, that don't exist in me.
And so, all is a reflection. Can you see?
So next time you don't like the way someone is,
or what they say,
Take a breath, and remember each day
When we recognise it as a calling to heal that part in us,
We'll feel freedom and forgiveness and give up the fuss.
And when you see great beauty and strength in another,
Know you too carry these qualities,
Dear sister and brother.
