The world is full of people who look at the mirror of life and they don’t like the reflection they see. So what do they do? They pound the mirror, they try to change the mirror, they get frustrated at the mirror, and they complain and curse at the mirror. This is the equivalent of trying to change the external world, instead of working on yourself.
The Law of Correspondence says “as within so without, as above so below.” What this means is that your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. Your outer world is 360-degree mirror, everywhere you look you are seeing yourself reflected back. Wherever you go, there you are. Your outer world merely expresses your thoughts, beliefs, feelings, attitudes, etc.
Therefore, if you can change your inner world that means you can dramatically change what is going on what is on the outside. The Law of Correspondence says that your relationships, your health, your income, every single part of your life solely reflects on a 1 to 1 basis back to you the way you think and feel. Everything you have in your life you have attracted to yourself because of the person you are.
You can become anything that you truly desire to become by simply altering your inner world so that is in full alignment and harmony with what you envision. However, you cannot constantly energize and identify with feelings of anger, frustration, lack and disappointment and expect to have a joyful, successful, abundant and fulfilled life on the outside.
The key to personal happiness, freedom and peace of mind is to change your thoughts! By focusing exclusively on what it is that we truly desire, and by eliminating all thoughts of what we don’t want, we can begin to shape, mould and build our lives to our own specifications!
There are many, many things in our life that we don’t have complete and total control over, but the one thing we do have total and complete control over is our thinking. The only way to get what we truly desire in life is to change our thought patterns. With that being said, changing thought patterns is a difficult task for most people because it’s easier to point fingers and blame others for our misfortunes. Let’s face it – it is much easier on our egos to blame someone else for what is wrong in our lives, than it is to accept the responsibility!
You have little or no control when it comes to the external world but you have total control when it comes to your inner realm. As a result, you have total control over your future destiny. This means you can change all aspects of your life because you can change all the components that make up your inner world. You can’t change your external world if you don’t change your inner world.
If we really want to see change in your outer world, you must first change your inner world – your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes. Stated another way, your current situation is a direct result of the way you think. If you want to shift your paradigm, then you must change the way you think!
