Answer: You always see the Creator, not yourself. We just say that a person seemingly sees himself. In fact, he sees the Creator but in the opposite, negative form, as much as he is dissimilar to the Creator. Therefore, it is said that the person is the Creator’s shadow.
Question: But when I look at myself in the mirror, do I see the Creator?
Answer: I mean your actions, thoughts, and feelings, not what you see in the mirror. It is better not to look in the mirror.
