Seeing how sense consciousness influences our perceptions of the world.

‘When we truly comprehend the nature of the world, we realize: “Oh, it’s all inside the mind.” With that knowledge, our attachment to the world weakens. When that happens, things that occur in the world don’t affect us so much; they have less impact. We sort of shrug and say dispassionately, “That’s just the way of the world.” We let them go. As the mind detaches from external things, the focus turns more and more inside, more and more toward seeing how sense consciousness influences our perceptions of the world.’

-Ven. Ajahn Pannavaddho, ‘Uncommon Wisdom’.
