What we crave in this life is an outer beauty that reflects the gorgeous world inside us. I am speaking about the house within us. What if the house inside you because the house you lived in? What if you envisioned that your life could be just the way you imagine it? Then you are en route to enlightened destiny, because each of us has huge control over our lives. We don’t always realize this because we are, to a degree, defined by so many outside forces. But at the same time, we do have the power to create our own environment — and our environment, in turn, shapes us.
One of the strongest ingredients in keeping you who you are, your physical environment also keeps you in full awareness of where you are. If you can find your way to live in the house within you, then you not only create an enormous, broad, and lovely offering to yourself, but also to your “pack” — your family and friends. You will also inspire anyone who has not yet been able to make this connection. Such is the power of rooms.
