seeingImagine if you could not see a beautiful autumn sky, the flush of summer leaves starting to turn yellow, the sun streaming into your eyes, as you walked in the early morning. Would you still feel alive?

How would the cooling air on your skin feel? How would the movement of your muscles and limbs through the air feel, if you could not see? walking

birdsongHow would the bird song and rustling of leaves, the opening of a shutter or the wake-up bark of a local dog sound, if you could not see?

How would the taste of your morning peaches be, their cool spiciness, be,peaches if you could not see?

mint and rosesHow would the fragrance of mint and roses as you clean your teeth and wash your face be, if you could not see?

These sensations are invisible, but equally as life-affirming as the visible. So, cherish the invisible in your life, for this is where you can find the mystical, and the ever-presence of millions of holy beings. Everything visible is constantly changing, flashing throughout your day. You run around trying to catch fragments with your butterfly net!    butterfly netBut the invisible is steady, abiding, and the essence of concrete reality. Sound. Feelings. Taste. Smell. These are the stuff of the permanent universe, and you are an important piece of that!

Remember throughout the day ahead, that you are invisible eternally. Your being is made visible precisely so that you can bring divine love into the suffering world of seeing and being seen.
