Inner Architect Verse External Reality

Our inner architect is dominated by our beliefs and thoughts.  This is at the expense of the wisdom of our spirits.  We live with our attention upon what must be done, not what we desire to do.  We compartmentalize our spiritual life from our external life; our spirits from our minds.  In this paradigm of living it is near impossible to find the balance, find the joy, or find the serenity sought after.  We have lost the value of our external in search of the internal.  The two must be in alignment and married to one another to experience the true joy, balance, and serenity.

So the question is how to align and unite the inner architect of spirit with the external thought and action.  The answer to the question will vary by each that pauses to answer it for themselves.  It is not a simple do this and the result will be.  The internal architect of each being's spirit is divinely unique.  Yet, there are some basics that wisdom relates to us all.

Let's begin with looking at emotions and the mind (or our thoughts).  Emotions and the thoughts of the mind are truly symbiotic.  Emotion does not exist without thought.  Thought does not exist with emotion.  Every thought affects the emotional body.  Physiology affects your emotions through the thought process.  When what is perceived as a negative emotion such as anger or anxiety exist, they place you in a state to give energy to take action.  This dynamic energy is either in alignment with spirit or in alignment with the material.  When it propels into constructive change towards the internal, it moves closer to unity.  When it propels into destructive changed towards the internal, it widens the chasm between.

This harmony within our internal architect and external structure simply means that the ability to control our thoughts and determine how any experience will affect us.  Harmony in the external begins with harmony within.  We, as humans, approach the world around us in an old paradigm of duality.  This paradigm creates the perception that we must judge others on their journey when it does not align with our own.  This sets up an internal tug of war with a duality resulting in projecting a tumultuous energy into the external.  This struggle serves to deepen the chasm further.

Beginning to integrate all perceptions, all sides of self within and external, without perceiving that an opposite to all things exists is a difficult ideal.  Shifting from the perception of duality to a reality of polarity is the first step.  A duality is simply an opposite that complements the other - thus polarity. In polarity two opposites stand apart but cannot exist without the other.  When we judge (duality) we separate the mind (thoughts) from seeing the unity (polarity) resulting in separation of the internal architect from the external world.  This shift is one of the greatest challenges that must be overcome, uniting your wholeness to create an inner balance of harmony.

These illusions of duality paradigm will continue to divide us from within until we lift the veils of illusion.  When we do lift the veils of illusion we can embrace our true selves.  Never can one accept others on their own journey, when one feels separated within their own inner self.  We must learn to create unity from the duality to transform our internal architect and external reality into a peaceful and harmonious state.

If one wishes to live in a state of peace and harmony, the inner architect must be balanced, peaceful, and harmonious.  If within the emotional body you are angry, the external will be perceived as angry.  If within the emotional body you are hurt, the external will be perceived as hurtful.  The change in the external begins when you heal what caused you stop dancing and singing both in the internal and the external.  It is impossible to heal the external, change the world, unless the internal architect of self has been healed, united.  This uniting, this conscious creation of harmony is a form of spiritual activism anyone can participate in.
