In that inner sanctuary of our own nature, hidden perhaps from objective gaze, nestles the seed, perfection.
SOM pp. 36
O give me Grace to see Thy face, and be
A constant Mirror of Eternitie
No matter the conditions in which we find ourselves, there remains something within each one of us which is in its original state. This place inside is reached in silence, in contemplation and quiet listening. Within this place is the recognition of harmony health and beauty. Entry into this personal sanctuary is denied to no one. However, such a communion must be approached with an open heart and a full intention to receive something greater than the immediate circumstance of life: Reality.
Like any method, meditation must be practiced to reveal its subtleties and depth. Regular time, at the same time each day, in the same location each time, is a wonderful approach to rapidly deepening the experience meditation has to offer. During the time set aside to meditate we strive not so much to think, but to observe; not so much to visualize, but to receive; not so much to direct, but to deepen our awareness of the Invisible Presence of God in and through all life.
Today I pause frequently to silently observe Spirit in the world around me. Today I pause frequently to silently observe Spirit in the world inside me. Today I pause frequently to silently observe Spirit reflected back to me. I give thanks for my life and all that is in it.
