In today’s world, it is not uncommon for someone to believe that what is going on ‘out there’ is the problem. Consequently, what is going on ‘out there’ will need to change in order for the world to change, and, if it doesn’t, this won’t happen.
It could be said that it will be perfectly normal for someone to have this outlook, considering this is what their eyes will tell them. So, as the evidence will be there, there will be no reason for them to question this conclusion.
All in the Same Boat
It is likely that this is an outlook that most of the people in their society have and their friends and family could also have the same outlook. With there being so many people who are on board with this outlook, it will be seen as the absolute truth.
One, along with most of their fellow human beings, is then not going to be able to do a great deal about what is going on. Sure, they can do certain things and even vote for the ‘right’ person, but that will be about it.
A Select Few
Those who have a lot of money and/or hold positions of power can be seen as the ones who have the ability to make a difference. Also, one could believe that there are a group of people who rule the world, with them operating behind the scenes.
They are then going to have to hope that certain people do the right thing. Due to the imbalance in power, regardless of whether one believes that there are ‘elites’ who are in control, the few will be in control of the many.
When a large part of a population has this outlook, and even a large part of the planet, it is not going to be a surprise if there is a lot of ‘victim energy’. Ultimately, those with the control will be the perpetrators of what is going on and just about everyone else will be powerless victims.
This can mean that a lot of people will have feelings that are in alignment with this experience. Someone like this can be accustomed to feeling angry, helpless, hopeless and powerless.
To make matters worse, the mainstream media will continually talk about how bad things are and how certain people are also doing bad things. After being exposed to this information, one could feel even worse about what is going on.
Moreover, through consuming so much negativity and having a lopsided view of reality as a result, it could be a challenge for them to focus and to get to sleep. As a way to handle the pain that they are in, they could often be indifferent.
However, what if what is going on ‘out there’ is not the main problem and the few are not the ones with all of the control? What if what is going on ‘out there’ is a reflection of what is taking place for humanity as a whole and each person on the planet has the ability to make a difference?
To understand how this could be so, it will be a good idea for one to take a closer look into the law of correspondence. Quite simply, this law states that what is going on externally is a reflection of what is going on internally.
This means that although someone can believe that they are just an observer of what is going on externally, they are actually co-creating what they see. What will obscure this fact are their ego-mind and their eyes.
Both their ego-mind and their eyes will create the impression that they are separate from what is going on externally. But, as convincing as this will be, it is nothing more than an illusion.
Taking this into account, they, along with their fellow human beings, have the ability to change the world by changing their inner world. Through changing what is taking place internally, their external world will change.
This will be similar to how what is on a screen will change if what is being projected onto it changes. Trying to change what is on the screen itself won’t change what is being projected.
A Common Approach
To try to change what is being projected by doing things to the screen might momentarily change what is seen, but it won’t be something that lasts for very long. This is, of course, what often happens in the world, which is why certain things don't really change.
What is going on at the root - what is being projected needs to change – so that there is not only change, but lasting change. For this to happen, it will be essential for one to deal with what is taking place in both their conscious and unconscious mind.
Having an understanding of how their life is not just a reflection of what is taking place in their conscious mind will make it easier for them to see how the world is mirroring back what is going on for them. If their second mind wasn’t taken into consideration, they could say that they are not playing a part in what is going on as they are a ‘positive’ and an ‘aware’ person, for instance.
What is taking place at a deeper level, in their unconscious mind, will have a far greater impact on their life than what is taking place in their conscious mind. This part of them will contain emotional pain and the parts of themselves that they have rejected, among other things.
For the world to truly change, a large part of humanity will need to let go of a lot of their own inner baggage. One’s life will show them what it is that they need to resolve, that’s if they are able to see what is going on ‘out there’ as being symbolic, not literal.
When it comes to working through their inner wounds, they may need to reach out for external support. This is something that can be provided with the assistance of a therapist or healer.
