With our practice, we shine a light both inward and outward.
With meditation, even as we are being mindful of our breath and our present sensations, we are also looking inward, taking a direct look at our own mind, and attempting to resolve confusion into clarity and wisdom.
The outer practice is how we then extend our wisdom and compassion toward others, how we act, how we behave, once our formal practice period is over.
Outer and inner reflect each other.
