I'm just curious about whether others have experienced something that has periodically struck me since I was a child--a sense that the person in the mirror is not "me" or does not reflect my "true" appearance. Of course, many may insist that this is just the reaction of someone who thinks they should look more like the current Hollywood Heart-throb. I don't, and this started well before the time I knew there was such a thing as being "good looking" or "beautiful". It is instead a sense that the face I see, though certainly what I look like now, is somehow not my "true" appearance. But . . . without a good idea of what that true appearance actually IS (other than different). Is this like the child that remembers a prior set of parents and thinks that their current parents are not the "real" parents? Am I just remembering the last lifetime? Perhaps, but I don't think so. I actually feel like the face I am looking for is the one I began with (however many lifetimes that has been), or the one that I will end with (somewhere down the line). I also feel like these may be the same--that once I have gone through it all, I will arrive back at where I began, and (as the saying goes) really know it for the first time. Anyhow, I am curious about others who may have experiences of this type, and what their thoughts may be on the matter. Cordially, S&S PS--I also think that I have done this same gazing with the same resulting confusion through many other lifetimes, always wondering why that wasn't "me" and what "I" actually looked like.
