In our rush to fulfill our commitments, pay our bills and get from one place to another we don’t give ourselves the time to stop and appreciate that which is all around us. We see our environment with blind unappreciative eyes, the environment we exist within being, in ‘Our’ actuality, a hindrance to our ability to progress in our rushing around. But in rushing we miss a vital clue as to what our environment really is and therefore its true beauty.
Everything we observe and are has been created by our Source Entity our God. Everything has been created to help it evolve, and the methods chosen by God to ensure its evolution includes our creation and the creation of the environment we incarnate into. Everything is God, within God. It is beautiful to behold it in action, it is God in action.
Meditation is a form of concentration. True meditation is concentrating on communion with our Source Entity, our Creator, our God. Stopping and looking at everything around us, ‘Really’ looking, observing and simply appreciating without responding to external distraction, or experiencing internally created distracting thoughts, is communion with our environment and is therefore meditation on God.
Focused observation is meditation on our environment. It is the one way of seeing the true beauty in everything, and in the process we recognize that everything around us is God and that we are communing with God.
