One cannot experience the outside world in exactly the same way as he is experiencing the inside self. In both ways he is experiencing God, but there is a difference. At the deepest possible point of meditation one reaches the stillness; there is no world-experience any more. Beyond it one cannot go: even the "he" is lost.
