In spiritual teachings we are often being told that the truth lies within. But where’s within? And what’s outside?
Everything is within. In and through our consciousness we have an experience of the outer reality. In itself, what we call the outer reality is an illusion. It is the experience of it which is real. The outer can not exist without a consciousness observing it. It is in and by the consciousness reality is born.
The inner and outer are not separate from each other. To look within is to get closer the source of everything. To look in the outside is to see its manifestation.
We are not in the world. The world is in us.
