External circumstances

I’ve heard that your external circumstances are a reflection of your internal state of being or something like that. I’m looking around at my house and seeing that some parts are fairly neat and tidy, organized and clutter-free. But, there are other parts that are super messy, unorganized, and full of clutter. I’m asking myself how my house reflects my inner state/mind management. I suppose I’m both organized and a mess inside. Perhaps I’m on a journey that sometimes includes mental clarity and calm and other times a mess of letting my default brain get the best of me. Maybe the question about what my house says about me isn’t useful? Or maybe it is useful as information as long as I don’t judge myself for it. Do you think it’s useful to look around and make your external circumstances mean something about you?
