The clear, still depths of a mountain lake exemplify the power of reflection. Its unruffled surface presents a natural mirror in which are reflected with perfect detail of outline and color the evergreens upon its banks, the snow-capped mountains by which it is surrounded, the cloudless blue of the sky above. When unruffled, its capacity to reflect is perfect.

It is obvious, however, that that which the water reflects is not spiritual reality, but only the temporal beauty of a finite, material creation which, at its best, is but a poor counterfeit of the "beauty, grandeur, order" of the universe of Spirit. And the lake's capacity to reflect can only be thought of as merely typifying the true, spiritual quality of reflection.
