We cannot experience the world outside directly

We might say that we know something that is happening outside of ourselves, but the process that is actually happening is that the mind has directed its attention towards that concept outward.

[Yogi's note: Perception creates concepts and everything is happening in the mind. We cannot directly experience the world outside, we can only think about it.]
