There are 8 areas of our life each containing mirrors, reflecting back to us what we are and where we are. If we do not like the reflection there is no use adjusting the mirror! For with every adjusted mirror, still, there you are. If you do not like the image that is re-presented then wisdom suggests you start with the projection (you). Adjusting things in you adjusts the image of you creating the change you want to see. Many times in life we want to change others; change our friends; change our relationships; and change something on the outside in order to bring us the fulfilment and satisfaction we desire to feel on the inside. We make changes on the outside which only seem to snap back in to its old form again after a short space of time. Wondering then why we can’t create the experience we want to live in. The only thing you can really change is you. Significant change requires work on the inside. To create transformation which is lasting change we need to develop new consciousness, new habits, new practices, and new language to create a world of difference to participate in. This awareness echoes the truth in the statement it’s not you it’s me. Let’s take responsibility for the changes we want to see in our lives and refuse to blame everyone and the world around us. The power lies within, not outside of us. And when we change our internal states we will most certainly change our external experiences.
