Long ago in a small village, in a land that was far away, there was a place known as the House of a thousand mirrors. It was a magical place with dozens upon dozens of reflective glasses of all shapes, and sizes.
One day, a happy little dog learned of this wonderful place. Completely fascinated, he decided he would venture out to visit. When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He eagerly looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could.
Happy dogs create happy dogs
To his great surprise, the happy dog found himself staring at 1,000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1,000 great smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left the house, he thought to himself, “This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often.”
In this same village, there was another little dog. This little dog, however, was not quite as happy as the first one. He led a sombre life, ever dull and gloomy. When he learned of the House of 1,000 Mirrors, he wanted to visit too. When he arrived, he climbed the stairs slowly one at a time, and walked with his head hanging low.
Sombre dogs create sombre dogs
When the sombre dog looked into the door, he saw 1,000 unfriendly looking dogs staring right back at him. Feeling threatened, the sombre dog growled at them. To his horror, all 1,000 little dogs started growling back at him. Completely petrified, the sombre dog ran for the door. As he left, he thought, “That is a horrible place. I will never go back again.”
We visit the House of 1,000 Mirrors every day. All the faces we see are essentially the mirrors. What they reflect back to us is exactly what we project to them. So it boils down to one question: what kind of reflections do you want to see on the faces of the people you meet?
Our life is a reflection of our thoughts and actions. Always bear in mind that you are in control of what you want in life and you are responsible for what you get.
Life is a reflection of intent.
Be a reflection of what you would like to receive.
If you want love, give love.
If you want truth, be truthful.
What you give out will always return.
