Outer World is Partial Reflection of Inner World

By Enoch Tan

We may think that everything we are experiencing in our external reality is a reflection of our inner consciousness, therefore when we see negative events that we feel we aren t presently creating, we become confused and frustrated. We start doubting the law of attraction and our reality creation powers. The truth is that although the outer world is a reflection of the inner world, it is only a partial reflection. What we see in the visible world is not all there is.

Like the tip of an iceberg, there is a whole portion that remains submerged under the surface of the water. The outer world is the exposed portion while the inner world is the hidden portion. When we create reality by setting an intention, there is an entire process of events that appears in the inner world. Each event is connected to another until finally the full manifestation of the intention is realized. What we see in the outer world is only part of the process as it unfolds over time.

When we see bad things happening, we wonder why it is so when we know we did not consciously intend them to happen. When we set an intention to create wealth, we may encounter loss. When we set an intention to have a better relationship with someone, we encounter obstacles or conflict to make it worse. Actually what we are facing is only temporary. Those very events that appear as bad are really not bad at all. They are just part of the process of things turning into our greatest good.

The reason why you encounter loss at the moment might be because it is a learning lesson to knowing what causes it, so that you will be prepared for the keeping of great wealth that is to come when you are ready for it. The reason why you encounter obstacles or conflict in relating with another person might be because when you get closer to someone, you inevitably touch their weak spots and set of certain emotional triggers. Those are opportunities to learn how to relate with that person in all circumstances.

Whatever we are experiencing in the visible world is only part of the picture. In the larger scheme of things, the reality we desire is already fully laid out in the invisible world. Our intention has already created an entire plan for its manifestation. We should never doubt that for one moment. Everything that happens along the way is just part of that plan. As long as we stay in vibrational harmony, we will move along the path but when we become negative, we move out of the plan.

That is why detachment is so important. When we are detached to the outcome, we are able to stay on the path without wandering away. We can continue acting according to our heart's desires and doing what we believe in. Attachment to the outcome creates fear, doubt and worry. That is when we start veering off the course with negative thoughts, emotions and actions. We take detours and waste time before getting back on track. When we are detached, our intentions manifest a lot faster.

There are many possibilities and pathways that our intentions can take to manifest. Possibilities and pathways can keep combining to create new possibilities and pathways. What we see in the visible world are only the possibilities and pathways that currently exist. If we only look at what appears to be in the present, many things will seem impossible. But the future where those possibilities and pathways exist are already contained in the invisible realm. It is only a matter of time before they appear.

Do not look to the outer world as true reality. When you base your reality on what you see, you will think that your desires are not manifesting. True reality is spirit and spirit contains everything you ever wanted and will ever want. Spirit is the highest plane of the invisible realm. All your true desires are actually spirit seeking to manifest. Looking to the outer world causes fear which is the emotion of false evidence appearing real. Look to spirit and you will have faith which is the evidence of things not seen.

We have to realize that the manifestation of our intentions is a package deal. There are many parts that come with it and we cannot just accept certain parts and not the rest. If we want to manifest our desire fully, we have to accept every part that is integral to its total experience. We have to accept the good as well as the bad. In fact, even what we might consider as bad is also good because it is all good when we see how it all fits together to form the most beautiful and perfect picture of our creation.

What we see in the outer world is only how things are happening in time. When we look from a perspective outside of time, we realize that there is so much more that has yet to fall into place. Whatever that can be seen in the outer world is subject to change. Time changes everything, yet change itself is also an illusion because nothing changes when seeing the whole thing outside time. By knowing that the full reflection of the inner world happens over time, we can detach and surrender to the process.
