“What is the mind? A Mirror?

“What is the mind? It is a phenomenon that is not body, not substantial, has no form, no shape, no color, but, like a mirror, can clearly reflect objects.”
.
– Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Then being present, empty of thought, would be the clearest the mirror would ever appear, would it not?
.
.
If we have PTSD, we see an unworthy image reflected back at us.
.
.
It is a delusion!
.
.
Our perception becomes reality, we become unworthy in our mind.
.
.
What do you think?
