Inner conflict generates outer turmoil.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out in your life?

Life can seem to be a string of complications. We sort through one issue only to have another arise, sometimes before the first one is handled. We end up in ongoing reactive mode, sprinting from one mini crisis to the next.

“As within, so without” explains this phenomenon. We project our inner state into the world around us, creating our reality based on our conscious and subconscious beliefs, thoughts, and feelings. If we are troubled within our selves, we will find a troubled world around us.

Luckily, the reverse is also true. When we are calm and happy inside—at peace with ourselves—this will reflect in our outer world as well.

Today’s message suggests that I tend to internal housekeeping to maintain a peaceful, easy, and happy environment around me. I can choose the nature of my existence by monitoring and tweaking my inner state. I create life around me from what is within me.

How about you? How do you correlate your inner and outer worlds?
