What a mirror reveals

Long ago, when the world was teeming with wild animals, a king and his entourage visited the jungle. An inquisitive young royal asked the guide many questions about the animals they saw. After learning about the laws of the jungle in relation to predators and prey, the young man asked the safari guide, “Which is the most dangerous animal here?” The guide picked up a mirror and held it up in front of the somewhat confused youngster. Putting his hunting gear down, he said, “Surely I cannot be that dangerous now.” The guide chuckled and broke into an all knowing grin and remarked, “The source of the danger is in man’s mind.”
