Student: Why there is no outside?

Master: Nothing is beyond the mind. Energy cannot be separated or divided. Phenomena are together and cannot be separated.  If we blame or scold someone or something, if you think that this person creates problems or this person creates something to affect your life, you separate your karma into two portions.  One we call ourselves, the other we call outside, someone else.  That means you try to push part of you away.  Our mind is creating our own relationship.  In the relationship, we think that this person is outside of ourselves.  We separate our relationship into two portions. One is my thought, my physical body and the other one is outside of my physical body.  Actually inside and outside are connected together.  They are one and they cannot be separated. The real problem is not the person.  The real problem is that your mind is creating the problem.  This is very important. If want to find the solution in life, we need to find the root of the problem, the cause of the problem.  The result is not the cause of the problem; the result is coming from the cause, the mind.
