the image in the mirror

A body is standing in front of a mirror. It's impossible for the image on the mirror to understand, comprehend, experience or have any idea of what the body is.

We the image of God with our mind and intellect are incapable of understanding or experiencing God. We have to transcend our mind and intellect, let go our "I'ness", let go our likes and dislikes, beliefs, assumptions, conclusions, and concepts to reach the state of equinimity where we are empty of our attachments and fears, only then Grace will fill us.

Paraphrased from a lecture by Shibendu Lahiri
