As I see it :
A "mirror" is a poor analogy -- yet there are some correspondences. ( E G:
the physical body could not exist without the astral electro-magnetic infra
structure that holds and supports every atom and molecule --- building them
into our multi-natured form -- and as a vehicle of a potential and
independently VIRTUOUS "God." )
Our embodied mind does not slavishly copy the behests of the WISE MIND --
Buddhi-Manas -- unfortunately.
The Buddhi-Manas has the duty of assisting and not controlling the Lower.
[S D II 167 ]
Karma as a universal reagent, can show us how deviant choices of a selfish
nature only end hurting our Lower Self.
Thanks for your response.
All good wishes, (A FEW NOTES BELOW)

At source we are ALL ONE -- SPIRIT
It is this very unity that is our greatest challenge. The force of
separation, that which continually seeks to destroy unity, attacks us
the more strongly because of our devotion to unity. It is our test,
our opportunity, to learn, to evolve, to rise beyond the mire of

We are continually challenged by our own lack of understanding. The
more we realize out essential unity (after all, do we not have access
to information that can help us solve the most vexing conundrums of
out time?) the more we are vulnurable to attack in the areas where we
are weak (Ego, fear, doubt....)
DTB REINCARNATION and the concept of the invulnerable and

Indeed, the material provides us with endless encouragement,
information, inspiration, support. We are all struggling alone, and
yet we are struggling together. Do you ever notice the inherent
contradictions/polarities in our study?
