Seed: The Seeing Eye
It’s Leap Year Day as I send this. A day which comes only once every four years. It’s a day for seeing life in a new way, an extraordinary way.
Meister Eckhart, the great nature mystic, wrote, “The eye with which you see God is the same eye with which God sees you.” Do you know what this means?
Gandhi wrote that we must “be the change we wish to see in the world.” This is what it is to see with the eye of God.
I believe there is a Godself within you possessed of a seeing eye. On this [quantum] leap year day, give yourself the gift of seeing your life through the seeing eye of God within you.
Start in the bathroom mirror first thing. You might wish God good morning when you see your own precious face.

Seeds are remarkable gifts. Sown in consciousness, they bring you to the most important part of your being—your Divine Spark.

Yesterday was a year and a day from the day I started this blog. A friend walked me through the process. I would never have done it otherwise.
In fact, that goes for most of my cyber-experience. Someone who knows more than I do about it gets to show up and walk me through it. What a miracle.
The thing that’s the miracle is that someone always does—show up, that is. One of the things I’ve given up as I’ve gotten older is the need to be an expert on everything. Oh, I’m an expert, but just on some things, and it’s perfectly alright with me if others are experts too. Especially on things I know nothing about.
Are you an expert who would like to be a guest blogger? Email me at email@example.com and let’s talk about it!
Blogging three times a week, week in and week out, is a wonderful discipline. The cool thing is, expert or not, I never run out of things to write about. The world is a fascinating place, always open to another perspective.
So, happy anniversary, Seeds for Sanctuary! Here’s to another year (at least) of explorations, insights and omnifaith wisdom.
Yesterday marked the conclusion of a long stretch of events hooked to timelines in our lives. As I write, it is Sunday, the first, full free day we’ve had in some months. Our houseguest went home. We did some picking up and reorganizing of household things, but mostly what I did and wanted to do was to make space.
Isn’t that a strange expression? Make space. What does it mean? For the most part, it means to me that unstructured time is needed to allow whatever needs to come up to arise. Even odder here. Making space is about unstructured time!
Here is what happens to many of us in our over-scheduled lives. We don’t have the time to allow for our true feelings to arise. We’re so crowded with events that we just throw the feelings into a recycling bag and intend to get around to them sometime soon. This can have a less-than-stellar effect on current reality.
In the past few hours, my sweetie and I have both confessed to unexpressed (ergo, unfinished) anger, sadness, unspoken words, outstanding questions between ourselves and others, frustration, worry, doubt, having to run away, snuggling and a whole host of other experiences we’d thrown into the emotional recycling bag because we were too busy or too tired to deal with them at the time.
What this does is perpetuate experiences that if we instead attended to would be put to rest. This is the danger of recycling bags and emotion.
So I’m going to finish drafting this post for tomorrow’s blog, sit down on the sofa, and make a little more space for myself and my beloved so that, hopefully, we’ll waken tomorrow refreshed, renewed, and emotionally caught up to where time has brought us today—into the ever-eternal now.
