Is God (and Satan) within ourselves... not without?

TRUTH is within ourselves; it takes no rise
From outward things, whate’er you may believe.
There is an inmost centre in us all,
Where truth abides in fullness; and around,
Wall upon wall, the gross flesh hems it in,
This perfect, clear perception—which is truth.
A baffling and perverting carnal mesh
Binds it, and makes all error: and, to KNOW,
Rather consists in opening out a way
Whence the imprisoned splendour may escape,
Than in effecting entry for a light
Supposed to be without.

from "Paracelsus" Robert Browning

    As Robert Browning so aptly noted, I don't know.

    We were talking
    About the space between us all
    And the people who hide themselves
    Behind a wall of illusion
    Never glimpse the truth
    Then it's far too late
    When they pass away

    We were talking
    About the love we all could share
    When we find it
    to try our best to hold it there
    WIth our love, with our love
    We could save the world
    If they only knew

    Try to realize it's all within yourself
    No one else can make you change
    And to see you're really only very small
    And life flows on within you and without you.

    We were talking
    About the love that's gone so cold
    And the people who gain the world
    And lose their soul
    They don't know, they can't see
    Are you one of them?

    When you've seen beyond yourself
    Then you may find
    Peace of mind is waiting there
    And the time will come
    When you see we're all one
    And life flows on within you and without you....
    --Within You, Without You, The Beatles
