    a good image

    We are all mirrors in this life . We all share each otherís light out of their souls . We all help each other to become a good image that we were meant to be when we were born . May you reflect every kindness and joy that you see in this world . And may your own soul always shine brightly as well . Thus you will always be happy .

    Is "image" correctly or naturally used here? If so, what does the sentence mean?

    Thanks!

    Jason

    The author is playing off the word "mirror" in the first sentence. He uses the word "image" in an unusual way, but it makes sense in context. Notice that the author also uses reflection, light, and shine. The passage is mostly metaphorical.
