I am the being of a father. I choose to be the being of a father. As such concerns show up when it comes to all of the children. And I notice, in particular as regards daughter, Clea. Why?
She is at that age, 12 years old, where there is the change in biology occurring. And at the same time she is acted upon by strong social forces. The kind of social forces that make, bend, break us.
So it was with delight that I read the following piece. A piece written by daughter where she asks a powerful question – perhaps the most powerful question of all.
A chair small. I guess it’s how others interpret it cause in the reflection of the chair it’s tall and big. A bit like humans.
Humans. There is what we are. And there is our reflection, how other people see us.
But let me ask you this, which one is more important? In our days everyone cares about their reflection: how other people see them.
But is it useful just having/being a reflection? I mean is it useful having a reflection of a chair? I think it is more useful just having the chair, the real chair.
Humans, it is more useful to have/be the real you than your reflection because your reflection is worth nothing to you.
So today ask yourself this question “To be me or to be my reflection?”
