Buddhist philosophy tells us that our environment is a reflection of our inner selves, reacting to our energies and mood.
eg. Smile, and the world smiles with you.

Well we know that's (kind of) true.
When you get out of the wrong side of bed everything bugs you; you stub your toe on the front door step, the queues for train tickets are long and then the train too crowded. You get to work late and your boss gives you grief. Your bad mood snowballs, and you have a shitty day.
If you’d woken up in a good mood your reactions to these events would have been far more positive, and you wouldn’t be having such a bad day at all as a result.

What I don’t understand is how this principle applies to waking up feeling weird… And then noticing that the whole world is weird too today. People say weird things and act in weird ways and unexpected and inexplicable things happens in unexpected and inexplicable ways.

That’s today – in case you’re interested.
