You are in a play, playing a role, and believing that the role and the play are both real. Why would you believe such nonsense? Because “your mind” is the playwright, the author of every scene.
When Maharaj said, “You are not in the world…the world is in you,” what did he mean? He meant, “You are not in the world,” that is, there is no “you” that is real or in any world. “The world is in you” means that the world is in your “mind” and is nothing more than a figment of your programming-and-conditioning-induced imaginings.
