The House of 1,000 Mirrors

Thursday Mar 01st, 2018


Long ago in a faraway village, there was place known as the House of 1,000 Mirrors.

A happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit.  When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house.  He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could.  To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1,000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his.  He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1,000 great smiles just as warm and friendly.  As he left the house, he thought to himself, “This is a wonderful place.  I will come back and visit it often.”

Another little dog, who was not happy like the first one, decided to visit the House.  He slowly climbed the stairs, his head hung low as he looked through the doorway.  When he saw the 1,000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them, and was horrified to see 1,000 little dogs growling back at him.  As he quickly backed away from the door, he thought to himself, “This a horrible place, and I will never go back there again.”

All the faces in the world are mirrors.  What reflections do we see in the faces of the people we meet?
