Re: mirrors in lucid dream

I think mirrors in dreams may - - act like a magic portal into other realms of experience - or show us different, unrealized aspects of ourselves - or they sometimes represent an abstract, metaphorical symbol for the pure essence of awareness, which reflects life experiences but is itself infinite a...
