Reflections of Reality

A friend sent me the following photo, which was commented: “This table was for sale on eBay. How can you tell it is being sold by a man? Can you solve this little riddle? First look and guess. You will find the answer below, but don’t cheat!”

Don’t just laugh, when you solve the riddle. The comment said: “Look at the picture in the mirror. And remember, if you are posting a picture on the world-wide web, wear clothes when taking the picture.”

From a spiritual viewpoint the situation is very symbolic: As souls we are naked, the pure higher self. We reflect ourselves in the mirror called mind and “look” through the camera of the senses. Observing the outer we get identified with it and forget ourselves, forget about the reflection. When we realise again who and where we are – the I am clad for a while in a body – we might smile about our funny personality.
