Consider for a moment that this is true.

Is it crazy to think that everything you’ve experienced, everything you’re experiencing, and everything you’re going to experience is a result of what you’ve been thinking and feeling?

The thought gives me pause.

It would mean that everything I like reflects some part of me.

Likewise, it would mean everything I don’t like reflects some part of me also.

Everything I experience is a feedback mechanism, reflecting to me what I’ve been thinking and feeling.

And that reminds me to look closely at what I’ve been thinking and feeling. Because my view of the outer world is often limited. It often doesn’t look how I want it to look either.

Change is possible. But I can’t force change on the outer world. It doesn’t work that way.

What I can do is engage in inner work. Be in the discovery of what is having me see the world as I see it now. Declare completion over past events. Seek out opportunities to heal.

Trying to change others is a waste of time – they are reflecting you. You are meant to observe and be in the discovery of what part of you they are reflecting.

Forcing a change in yourself is also a waste of time. There is always an impact, and you end up adding to the baggage you’re already carrying. The question is what you’re going to do with that baggage.

You can lovingly and gently engage in inner work. This will change the outer world. But not by force. It will change because you’ve changed.
