Beyond the Reflection of Self

Corrupt hearts make beautiful things seem ugly, while the pure in heart behold beauty in that which is unappealing to the corrupt. It’s easy to judge a book by its cover, but not so easy to read a book that appears to be less than ideal. And that’s the essence of our problem; isn’t it? We tend to be more focused on outward appearances than on content. We live to get but not to give.
When we ought to take a closer look at things we deem unappealing, we treat them as though they’re too insignificant to pay attention to. We need to stop doing that. We need to stop looking for mirrors of our own thoughts and start seeing life for what it is. We need to look beyond ourselves. When we begin to do that, we will see all kinds of beautiful things we were blind to when we were too busy to take the time to notice that there’s more to life than that reflection in the mirror.
