Fashion for yourself a perfect mirror
On which to gaze when you are quite alone.
Undertake to view yourself completely,
Resisting being more than passive eyes.
There is serenity in merely seeing,
Even when the object is your own,
Even when you notice pride or loathing,
Not avoiding anything but lies.
