Try looking at Jesus as a mirror of ourselves, who we were originally, who we essentially are now, the divinity within the humanity. When we see our godhood mirrored in Jesus, we are able to see that same godhood in others, or, if their divinity is so covered as to be unrecognizable, we sense that it is there—somewhere—along with its yearning to be made manifest.
Bob Goff often uses a real mirror, holding it up to individuals and instructing them to accept the fact that God loves them just the way they are. Then he tells them to see themselves just the way they are and make some choices about who they want to be.
