There are videos galore about animals seeing themselves in a mirror. They hiss and arch their back; try pawing at this 'enemy' in an attempt to make it retreat. I've noticed humans kinda do the same. I've seen clients look away in disgust and refuse to look back; sometimes they start talking or thinking the most vile ugly words to themselves. What is it about looking into our own eyes and saying 'I love you' that brings such fear and anger?

It's not even so much our body image. It's like we have 'failed' so much in our own eyes, we refuse to allow any spark of loving kindness toward someone so vile; someone so capable of doing the things we've done...or thought of doing.

You must be able to see yourself in all your Divine glory before you can see others in theirs...
