There are a lot of theories about how things are and how they should be
But a flower at a window offers something else
It offers a reward for a life spent paying attention.
may we pause to realize how deep and effective our natural inclination toward love and peace really is….how healthy and wise our inner wisdom…..
Reaching the “mental and spiritual nature of ourselves” is what spiritual practices are designed to do. Spiritual vision has inspired sages throughout history and been called many names. Both Christians and Plato named it the “eye of the soul.” For Sufis it is the “the eye of the heart,” and for Taoists the “eye of Tao” or the “inner eye.” Whatever its name, it represents a flowering of intuitive awareness that recognizes the sacred in all people, in all things, and within ourselves. This potent awareness penetrates far below the ego’s restless turmoil to the sacred core of our being. St. Augustine described how he turned attention inward “and beheld with the eye of my soul- the Light Unchangeable.” He concluded, “It is with the interior eye that truth is seen,” and our whole business therefore in this life is to restore to health the eye of the heart whereby God may be seen.” ~Roger Walsh
Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find
all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.
