My mind was a mirror — Ernest Hyde

My mind was a mirror

It saw what it saw, it knew what it knew.
In youth my mind was just a mirror
In a rapidly flying car,
Which catches and loses bits of the landscape.

Then in time
Great scratches were made on the mirror,
Letting the outside world come in,
And letting my inner self look out.

For this is the birth of the soul in sorrow,
A birth with gains and losses.
The mind sees the world as a thing apart,
And the soul makes the world at one with itself.

A mirror scratched reflects no image —
And this is the silence of wisdom.

~ Ernest Hyde ~

About new desert

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking is about a spiritual "destination," a journey within, a new beginning, that eventually takes us where we are meant to arrive. What matters is, first and foremost, our seeking spirit. Happy journey, dear fellow Sisters and Brothers!
