We are conditioned to think and feel that what is inside our human form is different from what is outside. That we have little control over our inside and so seek control outside where we can see and be seen, and act and acted upon visibly.
In developed cultures, we live inside sheltering, being contaminated by the poison of walls and roofs. We only venture outside when it is convenient or we are obliged to, and we consider the inside of our shelter to be a womb to retreat to, to be separate in.
But we are spiritual entities, pure energy, and so it not our natural state to be contained in this way. Our energy is a unique component of the universe with a particular mission but we have mostly become separated from it, living in fear behind masks and the influence of strong delusions and indoctrination of a synthetic reality.
The truth is that what happens outside, happens inside. The inside exists only in relation to the outside. If there is inner revolution it is reflected outside. If there is inner numbness it is reflected outside. As above, so below.
Existence is a massive mirror reflecting and resonating eternally. There are actually no choices about seeing or being seen. There are no time limits. There are only delusions unless we surrender to our True Nature.
In the visible world, the only thing which appears to separate our inside from our outside, is the organ of the skin. This thin porous membrane is the only division and even this has uncountable pores through which moisture is absorbed and expelled.
We are not separate in any way from the natural world or the Universe, from the visible or the invisible, nor from birth or death.
We are One not Two.
