The world is in you

The world is in you

It is said that the ordinary man sees himself in the world but the enlightened man sees the world in himself.

What this means is that the ordinary man is fully engaged and immersed in the material world of senses. He lost himself in it, to the extent that he is not aware that he creates his own world and experiences through his mind. Not being aware, he is trapped. He sees himself a victim, as if his life is left to fate and he has no control over what and how he experiences life.

The enlightened man, on the other hand, is fully aware that he creates his own world and experiences through his mind. He sees the illusory nature of the external world. As such, he is empowered with the knowledge that he determines his world and experiences through his own mental attitudes and perspectives to life. He does not see his life to be fated. Rather, he is the master of his own destiny.
