You are just now, here, neither coming nor going. Everything
passes by you; your consciousness reflects it but it does
not get identified. When a lion roars in front of a mirror,
do you think the mirror roars? Or when the lion is gone and
a child comes dancing, the mirror completely forgets about
the lion and starts dancing with the child--do you think
the mirror dances with the child? The mirror does nothing,
it simply reflects. Your consciousness is only a mirror.
Neither do you come, nor do you go. Things come and go.
You become young, you become old; you are alive, you are
dead. All these states are simply reflections in an eternal
pool of consciousness.
