Central to the human condition is a fundamental belief in unseen things. In our modern age, we believe in unseen wireless radio signals that our laptops and cellphones use to connect to the Internet. We depend on unseen air currents to carry our airplanes across the firmament. We eat of plants and use of plant products that grow from seeds planted, out of sight, into dark and loamy soils. Many of us trust in the compassion that flows from, and the justice meted out by, an unseen higher power - That Which Cannot Be Named. We use knowledge gained from books no longer directly in front of us to make sound and wise decisions. We believe in the unseen bonds we share with family and friends, relying on them for comfort, and support; we trust that these invisible support networks will assist us in times of confusion, need, or want.
On a more personal level, unseen information guides our every daily action via thought, urge, and feeling. To live a more meaningful life it is crucial to delve into the unseen inner world accessible through meditation. The root of our belief in the unseen resides in a place the naked eye can’t venture.
Close the eyes, sit quietly, and free the mind of attachment and dross. From the unseen inner world, all power comes; it is the wellspring of humanity’s salvation.
