Hi Neo, If I try to capture in words how I see the metaphysical, this is all that comes out:  There is no "outside".  So if there is no outside there really is no inside either, or everything, in a sense, is inside. ... I think our practice then becomes one of reconciling that unity within diversity into our daily lives.    




I try my best to accept the paradoxical nature of Reality. The language of my mind accepts 'outside' and the language of my heart accepts 'inside'. The following is a clue on how to handle it:


"Things derive their being and nature by mutual dependence and are nothing in themselves."
Nagarjuna


Without 'inside' there would not be 'outside'. Alan Watts has a wonderful saying - even a short piece of wood is 2 inches long.


I just recognized a slight error in my posting on the subject. I have omitted 'outside only' and 'inside only' - gotta fix that error. Thanks for helping me see it.

Awakenthesource,


I have faith that if your approach to “reality” is with authenticity, intimacy and spontaneity, there will be a very likely chance that the changes you observe will be positive.  When we surrender into the “peak experience” we receive the gifts of the Presence.  Depending upon our background, we may call these gifts energy, power, Chi, Gnosis, Reiki or Virtue.  Wherever we go from there, to whatever “reality” we are to be a part, we  affirm the Presence.  In Christianity, Reiki, and TT people are taught to share their energy, Power, Chi, Virtue. or Gnosis.


 


Another peak experience is seeing the reflection of the Light of the Presence from others.


 


May the Peace of Shekinah be with you

If I may be so bold as to reword your excellent comment.


A peak experience is seeing the emanation of the Light of the Presence in others.
