The Law of Correspondence, one of the twelve Universal Laws, demonstrates that your inner self reflects your outer world.
This law says, as it is on the inside so shall it be on the outside. In other words your outside world is reflecting back to you exactly as you are on the inside. Your outside world corresponds with the thoughts, beliefs, and feelings you hold on the inside. Your friends, your job, your situation is all a reflection of who you are on the inside.
This concept is very hard for some people to understand. Most people want to blame everyone else for there lives, but the truth is you, and you alone, create your world. If you have crappy friends, it’s because deep down you believe those are the friends you deserve and you, too, are probably a crappy friend. If this hurts your feelings, I’m sorry, but it is the cold hard facts.
A woman I respect highly in most cases, once told me that you are lucky if you have only one good friend in your life. This is her belief, not mine. I believe you can have many. I don’t believe this woman has one good friend she could call on if she really needed something. I on the other hand had ten very good friends ready to help me pack and move after my last bad break-up.
Please, understand I don’t believe this woman is not capable of having many good friends. It’s just the opposite. She is an amazing person, and if only she believed it herself, she would have countless friends she could rely on. The fact, however, remains that she believes she is lucky if she has only one. In this belief, she is a crappy friend as well. She is not someone you could call in a crisis and expect her help or even expect her to have the time to listen. It‘s sad really, if you new her, you would think she was a saint, until the time you really needed her.
I once heard a preacher say, “if you want to find love, you should make a list of the characteristics you are looking for in your future partner.” I made this list and sure enough, I found those people. However they also possessed other not so appealing traits, and I didn’t like the person I was when I was with them. After several failed relationships, I decided I would make a list of the characteristics I wanted to posses in a relationship.
I wrote down the things that were important to me, like being affectionate, the ability to be silly and act like a child with new found discoveries. I wrote down that I wanted to be counted on, I wanted to be a good listener, I wanted to give the best hugs, and countless other things.
Only 3 short months after writing this list, I reconnected with the love of my life. Guess what? I love me. I love who I am in this relationship. I love my partner and respect who my partner is. It is a wonderful thing. As it is on the inside so shall it be on the outside.
The Law of Correspondence states that what you hide on the inside reflects in your outside world. The outside corresponds with the inside. It also says that if you don’t like the world in which your living , it’s up to you and only you, to change it. So, take a good hard look at the world around you and ask yourself what is it about you that is bringing these people and situations into your life.
