Is this for or against me?

When you are able to look at things without saying, “This is for me or against me”, “I can go along with this”, or “I cannot go along with this”, then you are experiencing the state of being of the cosmic mirror, the wisdom of the cosmic mirror.

You may see a fly buzzing; you may see a snowflake; you may see ripples of water; you may see a black widow spider.

You may see anything, but you can actually look at all those things with simple and ordinary, but appreciative perception.
