I once read that how the world looks to us is a good reflection of ourselves. As above, so below. As within, so without.
I have been meditating on this and I think that how our immediate surroundings look to us is a good reflection of our inner state. If you look around you right now, at the walls of your bedroom, or furniture or wherever you are, how does it look? Do the inanimate objects appear distant and cold? Do you feel disconnected from the physical world around you? In regards to Deepak Chopra ideas about personal power, to be in sync with the world around you, to be in “flow”, your surroundings should not look frightening or incomprehensible.
If you practice love and/or are at peace with the world you’re in, then your surroundings should reflect that. You should envision the world directly outside of yourself as supporting and embracing you, because we create our realities and that means the world is a part of us. We should not feel disconnected, separate, divided or unsupported by what we see directly outside of our bodies. That means improper learned thought-processes are at work.
So I think we should be reflective and keep in mind how we’re subtly experiencing the world directly outside us.
