There is great strength in gentleness. Jesus was a gentle man, but he was also a firm man. He stood up for his principles and dared to expose the error he beheld in man.

In the symbolic language of dreams, a "house" represents a state of consciousness, where you are "living" at the moment. And a move to a higher state of consciousness will often be accompanied by an actual physical move.
To expect divine Light to act as a genie, instantly creating a better 'house' is to deny yourself an orderly unfoldment of greater insight and the fulfilling experience of participating in the creation of your new awareness. You may move into an instant physical house, but you will not be at home there until your consciousness matches the new vibration.
Every 'house' must first have a firm foundation if it is to be secure. And only you can lay the foundation for greater awareness by preparing your mental and emotional nature to receive and accept a larger insight.
If another desires to build a better 'house' all you can offer in the way of a blueprint is to share your own step-by-step construction effort that moved you toward your own increased perception and understanding. You cannot build another's 'house' or perform the labor required to accomplish a true change of consciousness.

I don't think you can ever convince anyone who does not have the imagination or desire to see beyond personal experience. You could show an airplane to a primitive and he would explain it away according to his own beliefs as either the work of a god or a devil.
