As babies, we see the world around us at face value: shapes, colors, dimensions. It is only later that we come to feel gratitude for the unseen but present qualities of love, care, and kindness.
Our growth in consciousness of what is unseen by our eyes and bodily senses is a natural evolutionary process - a process we grow into through experiences in living.
Through our emotional thought process, we see that some parts of life are very real and used by us, even though we can't see them with our eyes. As we learn by reflection, all in this world that we see and perceive with our senses has a hidden underlying structure.
Supporting the seen, is a structure unseen. A house with its walls and floors is an example of the seen supporting structure. If we knock a hole in the wall we would see much more than just looking at the flat surface: studs, insulation, plumbing, electric lines and more.
What is visible and useful on the outside of the wall is supported behind the scenes by more than our eye leads us to believe.
Likewise, our perceptions can become unlimited.
A way to discover our unseen consciousness behind the outer covering of ourselves and everything, is by going within our mind in the stillness of self-analysis, reflection, and meditation.
