From within this internal sphere we call consciousness there is a parallel to our external nature. These two realms of existence coincided with each other and in many writings by philosophers and poets and all who explored this notion, it is as a mirror at play. By the nature of our internal life, our external life mirrors back what we experience on the inside, therefore the two are one and the same. It’s easy to see the scope of it all, when looking out in into the night sky and noticing the magnitude of stars, planets, and the infinitude that lies within.
This points towards the notion of this great mirror that is from within and so without. By cultivating the inner worlds, we find that our outer world expands by taking note of the diversification, beauty, light, and shadows. It is all encompassing. As individuals and as a people, the world mirrors back how far we explore the inner life. The more we experience the inner life of feeling and emotions such as love, and its opposite, we are more inclined to cope with the external and and it reflects back what we discovered by exploring within nature of our lives.
