The mirror reflects the image, but the image does not improve the mirror.
You are neither the mirror nor the image therein the mirror. Having perfected the mirror so that it reflects correctly and truly, you can turn the mirror around and see in it a true reflection of yourself — true as far as the mirror can reflect.
But the reflection is not yourself; you are the seer of the reflection. Do understand it clearly — whatever you may perceive of yourselves you are not what you perceive.
You can see both the image and the mirror. You are neither.
Who are you? Don’t go by formulæ
The answer is not in words. The nearest you can say in words is …
“I am what makes perception possible, the Life beyond the experiencer and her or his experience”
Now, can you separate yourself both from the mirror and the image in the mirror and stand completely alone, all by yourSelf?
