Recall the famous scene with the evil queen in the fairy tale Snow White. She would stand in front of her mirror and ask, "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?" A prayer exercise that I would like to suggest is a playful parallel to those words. Daily, after you have finished with the practical use of your mirror, stand for a moment in silence. Then look directly into your mirror and with great devotion pronounce this short prayer:

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
may I look with love on all.

Edward Hays in Holy Fools and Mad Hatters by Edward Hays


To Practice This Thought:
Recite this refrain in front of the bathroom mirror in the morning.
