Mirror of the Soul

By Jayden Kyryluk

What calls to you? A mountain, tree, or cloud? A song or painting? Observing the silence of the wind or the evening sun? What makes you feel most...you? 

In these moments, you are witnessing the mirror of the soul. 

First, find your mirror. These are spaces where the spiritual transforms the ordinary into extraordinary, where witnessing becomes feeling and feeling becomes truth. In Sanskrit, truth is satyam. Sat means “that which is true”; and yam means “to hold,” “to tame” or “to examine.” These moments where the mirror shines through are when you feel most you. When you examine and hold that which is true, and what is the truest of all? Your soul. 

Forget your worries, forget the time and the person you think you are; find the mirror of your soul and sink into the ever-flowing river of truth. 

These momentary spaces beyond time are the deepest and most blissful drops of existence. Like a drop of water to a growing tree, these moments nourish us with energy. The mirror of the soul is presence in the simplest way and is a bridge between the manifested and unmanifested. These moments are not defined by culture - they are experiences of conscious awareness. The Greeks call this moment of truth Eureka (εὕρηκα) and the Japanese call it Satori (悟り), their term for awakening, "comprehension; understanding."  

Find your mirror. Look for your reflection in what you find most beautiful and know that it is you; that all flows with the same essence as you. Be it a mountain or a flower, find your mirror of the soul, and look at your true reflection for the very first time. That is why Jesus said in the Gospel of Thomas, “split a piece of wood, I am there. Lift up a stone, and you will find me there.” The spiritual world is all around us, and with true reflection in the mirror of the soul, you can discover the reflection of who you really are.

Turn the ordinary into extraordinary. The Mirror Is You.
