What seems to be your inner reality and what seems to be the external world are in reality one thing: you are literally watching your own Consciousness displaying itself in the world. You see your inner reality appearing as the world you experience, as life is the expression of your own Being. The world you experience is not something different from you.
As you become more conscious of and present with your inner contractions and remain as Stillness/as Peace in which conflicts arise, something completely different can happen. When you realize that you are Consciousness which is behind everything, you can experience a different world.
