To create an enjoyable dinner, we decide what will taste good, then buy, prepare and eat.
In order for the dinner to be ready, we use our creative mind to visualize the finished product. Then, using our logical mind we plan how to get the vision into solid form. And finally, we physically eat our created vision.
Meditation for reflection
To begin this meditation sit quietly and prepare by doing a few sets of even breathing exercises, such as breathe in 2 counts; breathe out 2 counts; breathe in 2 counts and continue until you feel balanced and peaceful.
Then let your mind turn to reflect on these thoughts: On the universal scale we are seeing a vision that has been brought into physical form; a large sumptuous dinner of stellar objects, plants, animals, ourselves. All aspects interrelating through exchanges of energy to complement and sustain their physical existence.
All parts harmoniously compounded one upon the other in shapes and roles; parts of the whole, and as individuals, completeness in each of the parts.
We are curious about the nature of the Universal Creator that has brought into the physical realm harmonious, rhythmical, cyclical, growing, diversified, and intelligent forms of existence.
As noted above in the experience of dining - we first had a vision, then took the necessary steps to be able to physically eat. Following this logic, we see that our precisely planned and harmoniously functioning physical universe came about from a well thought out and implemented plan.
The Creator used methods we have yet to wholly understand, as our minds are part of what was created. But, we can come to experience our existence as an essential interlocking part of the harmony of the large universal home by living the way that easily functions within the natural rhythms and cycles of everyday life.
We do this by caring, sharing, loving all forms of creation.
When we act in harmony within the creation we are closely aligning to the visionary mind of our Creator. And, as vision is as a root and closer to the Self than the ensuing physical manifestation, we are our very closest to experiencing our Creator when we live harmoniously.
By sinking into harmony."
To finish your meditation take a few minutes to record any new insights in your journal. Take a deep breath, slowly release it and go on with your day.
