Spiritual law: As within so without
“As within so without” is a law which basically means whatever thoughts and feelings you have inside of you, you will find them in your external world.
Whatever you hold true inside of you, will be evident in your friends, environment, health, and life. If you have internal peace, happiness, and love, you will be in a peaceful, happy, and loving environment.
Now, if you want peace in the world, first you have to find peace within you. If each one of us takes the responsibility and work at achieving inner peace, then we will have external peace, not only in our lives, but in the entire world.
All the stress, anxiety, and worry you feel is due to your inner world of thoughts and emotions. If you fix them, you will begin to experience inner peace and serenity.
As within so without example
A man who wanted to live in the town where Aristotle lives asked, “How are people in this town? Are they good? Bad?” Aristotle replied, “How are people in your town?” The man responded, “They are not good, which is why I want to leave the town.” Aristotle responded, “The same over here.”
After a while, another man came and asked Aristotle the same question, “How are people in this town?” Aristotle responded, “How are people in your town?” The man said, “They are very compassionate and respectful. This is the major reason why it is very hard to leave such people, but I have to do it for the sake of seeking knowledge.” Aristotle responded, “The people over here is the same, they are full of compassion and respect.”
What we learn from Aristotle’s response is that whatever you hold true internally, you will find it externally every where you go.
There are some folks when they leave their work, complain about their boss, colleagues, and the ambiance, yet they seem to find themselves in the same situation with different people later on. Ever wondered why is that?
Unless they work on fixing their internal world of imaginings, thoughts, and emotions, they will keep finding themselves in similar circumstances.
When we talk about this law “As within so without” we have to mention beliefs. It is beliefs, not negative thoughts that have a big impact on us.
Most of us think negative thoughts daily, yet most of these negative thoughts don’t manifest. It is when those thoughts turn into beliefs they will start bringing results in our lives.
People tend to hold various beliefs inside of them. For example, some think when they see a black cat, then something bad is going to happen. Now, if you hear such a statement and don’t believe in it, it won’t affect you, but if you hear such statement and start believing it, results shall follow.
Every time you see a black cat, you will start expecting bad news and guess what happens when you expect something to happen? It usually does happen, it is cause and effect or as the law says, “as within so without.”
Changing yourself internally
You might say this is all wonderful, but “How can I change myself internally? How can I change my beliefs?” Great questions! One of the best methods used to change the beliefs you hold inside of you is by holding a session with yourself to explore your beliefs.
Once you explore your beliefs, then you can start making changes to these beliefs that you hold. I will discuss some of the methods in a later article to help you overcome negative beliefs.
