As busy and crazy our life can be there are moments of Harmony, completely. And we can find them, recognize them with a simple practice.
Start with one thing
Focus on one object in your presence and truly look at it. It may be a piece of furniture and the grain of wood. A soap bubble, a leaf, dew on grass. Focus your attention on it and observe its condition in the present moment.
Everything depends on your awareness; what you allow yourself to experience. So relax and observe.
Experience it; the depth of it. Surrender and completely accept what is.
Avoid labels and names which are concepts. Rather be open to the connection with your state of being, with your awareness. Feel the solidity of it, yet also look deeper and perceive the space between. Perceive the spiritual significance of it.
Everything within your circle of awareness has spiritual significance. Everything you perceive is a reflection of yourself. It is a reflection of your state of awareness and naturally has spiritual significance.

If you are observing a flower, there is meaning of the color of the flower, the shape, the texture, the fragrance. It doesn’t represent our egotistic concepts… rather the significance of it.
Use your physical senses, then close your eyes and get an inner sense of the energy and your connection to it.
In this moment it’s possible to be open to the softness, the gentleness of the rose in it’s texture and fragrance. And your relationship to that tenderness because of your own tenderness. And the more you allow yourself to relax into your observation the more in harmony you flow, unnoticed.
You begin to go with the flow of life and life energy. It becomes part of your awareness and part of you.
The Beauty within that experience is compassion and harmony. You can feel it in your heart.
Now here is an important part of such an experience… and that is returning it; sending it out back into the universe and out to others. Living in the flow of Life with a conscious heart.
Once we recognize and feel harmony and peace we can stay open to it. Consider placing your hands over your heart and holding it within, letting it spread throughout every cell in your body. Then open and send that peace out from you in an attitude of gratitude.
Hope peace for everyone and the world. You are flowing in the energy of Life that is wise and compassionate. It flows continuously through us, and our opportunity is to allow our awareness of it.
Developing new depths of insight
As we become more observant of the things, beings, and energies around us we begin to experience their significance and meanings in our life. Mental concepts and conditioning begins to dissolve and we see things more clearly.
Meditation helps greatly in the discovery of continuous harmony that we normally ignore because of the egotistic mind. As you begin to experience harmony in meditation, you also will find spaces of harmony in your everyday life that you may have previously overlooked.
You are cutting through the ego and letting it go, but letting go of the ego can be a painful process. More about this to come with the help of the Great Law on the sister website: Science of Being; the further reaches of the spiritual road.
Sure life is busy, yet we must remember and not wait for tomorrow to be aware because this very moment has spiritual implications.
In the hope You find spiritual implications close at hand, PortiaSLB
“Interest responds to action, and action resides beneath the surface, not upon it. Therefore the more you develop OBSERVATION the more interesting, vital and cheerful life will appear to you.””
