I know you’ve been caught too long polishing a mirror you didn’t want to be reflected in.
Been in that mirror myself, the Polisher.
My slave-Slavic DNA of consciousness tells me:
neither I, the slave, nor my master are what the mirror of Nonduality reflects.
We both, I and my master, are free.
I know that much about not-knowing.
c.1290, "person who is the property of another," from O.Fr. esclave, from M.L. Sclavus "slave" (cf. It. schiavo, Fr. esclave, Sp. esclavo), originally "Slav" (see Slav), so called because of the many Slavs sold into slavery by conquering peoples. (source: etymonline)
