Yesterday, on my way home as I got on the train, I saw a teenage girl sitting down taking almost two seats. I felt sad for her because to me she seemed sad and lonely. I saw a girl who was trapped in wanting something she didn't have and not knowing how to have it. She was eating and it looked like she was not doing so out of hunger. She didn't even look like she was enjoying her food. It came to my mind this was her compensating for what feels missing in her life - an emptiness within that can't be explain. She seemed uncomfortable in her own skin - heavy, sticky, unfitted...like too many layers dragging and slowing you down when all you want is to feel weightless and free. I recognized myself in her and wanted to tell her how beautiful she is and how bright her inner light is - yellow in color. I didn't but I SO wanted to. Then, I saw a reflection on the window across from me and my first thought towards the woman in the reflection was "how beautiful!" The reflection was mine. I truly liked what I saw. I was so pleased and happy with myself. This brought the biggest smile to my face and filled my heart with joy and peace.
This is what I realized from this experience: I was seeing the outer world through my True Self's eyes and this is why I could recognized myself in another person and why when I saw myself on the window's reflection I was able to see myself as I truly am - BEAUTIFUL. This moment went beyond the physical and material plane, it was a moment of breaking through false beliefs about self body image. It was a moment of increased vibration that allowed me to stand in unconditional love towards myself and others and to accept all that is as it is. I felt empowered and limitless. This, to me, was a true healing moment.
