QA166 QUESTION: What is the significance of my fascination with scrutinizing my face in a mirror, which I discovered is really more frequent than I thought. I hold a kind of dialogue with myself in this way. Sometimes I do it to get some kind of reassurance if I’m in certain situations. Can you talk about this?

ANSWER: This is a gesture of the perhaps unconscious part in you that searches to understand yourself. It is as though you say, “Who am I? What am I? What is really going on in me?” It symbolically expresses your saying, “I want to see myself as in a mirror.” This spiritual urge expresses itself in such a gesture.
