I wasn't sure where to post this, but if the moderators believe it might fit better elsewhere, please, feel free to move it. So, one of the aspects of spirituality is to view the world from a different vantage point, Perhaps you have knowledge of this, but I thought I might throw it out there and see what people think. It's most typical to view everything as external objects: things, people, the world. We are separate from all else and view outwardly at the external universe. We are encapsulated within our bodies. An alternative perspective is that everything exists within our awareness, that the world (and life) is encapsulated within our true nature, which is consciousness. So, if I were to say life is within me, I would mean that quite literally, from the perspective that I am consciousness. I'm not certain I have stated the premise quite right, but there it is.
