Why should you give up on yourself
if you can always change yourself?
[to be continued…]
Do you wish to meet your doppelgänger (i.e. look-alike or double)?
Well, be careful what you wish for…
as these eight possibilities, or a mix of them might arise.
Reflection upon them might make you think twice,
about facing ‘yourself’ through someone else.
The first possibility is that you become indifferent to him or her,
with him or her having absolutely no effect on you.
If so, there would be no point in meeting him or her.
The second possibility is that he or she
urges literal self-reflection through observation and interaction.
The third possibility is that you become greedy
for what he or she has, that you do not have,
which makes you want to covet his or her identity.
The fourth possibility is that you will gladly rejoice
at what he or she had achieved.
The fifth possibility is that you become hateful
for what he or she does, which seems to spoil your image,
which makes you want to destroy him or her.
The sixth possibility is that you will kindly advise
him or her to turn over a new leaf.
The seventh possibility is that you become deluded
on who you really are, and who you want to become,
which makes you as lost as he or she might be.
The eighth possibility is that you will wisely guide
him or her to walk the right path.
If you and your doppelgänger wish to swap identities,
it will be due to dissatisfactions with yourselves,
while changing identities changes neither character nor karma.
Ask yourself these instead – Will you like you if you meet you?
Why not be the kind of person you will like to meet – NOW?
