What was Michael Jackson on about in that song called Man in the Mirror with this line – when you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make that change?
What was Gandhi on about with the saying that we need to be the change that we want the world to be?
Does this mean that if we want a different world then each of us as individuals need to make new choices and then our world will change?
The dictionary tells us that a mirror reflects a clear image and gives a true representation. (1, 2)
So if this is the case, then what is it that we are seeing when we look in the mirror?
What is the image we are receiving and what filters have we got in our mind that distorts, disturbs or changes that?
Do we really see a truly clear reflection or is it warped with the thoughts that enter our mind?
What do we really look at in the mirror?
What do we think we see in the mirror?
What do our eyes convey in the mirror?
What is our mirror really reflecting back to us?
What is the message we receive in the mirror?
What is it about the mirror that freaks us out?
What is being communicated to us in the mirror?
WHY are some of us afraid to look in the mirror?
WHY are some of us obsessed with the mirror?
WHY do some of us love looking in the mirror?
WHY do some of us hate looking in the mirror?
WHY do some of us avoid looking in the mirror?
WHY does looking in the mirror irritate some of us?
WHY does looking in the mirror change our mood?
WHY does looking in the mirror make us emotional?
WHY is it that sometimes when we look in the mirror, we see the ugly stuff and it affects us all day?
WHY is it that we never feel great after that one long look in the morning mirror?
