Outside the trees were swaying, the clouds were racing across the sky and the top of the bird feeder was barely staying attached. It occurred to me that if I didn’t know about the force called wind I might attempt to explain away all these occurrences as a mystery, because there was no wind to be seen.
No matter how hard I looked, I saw nothing that could explain why the trees swayed, clouds raced, or bird feeder tops rattled.
We all know that wind is invisible. If somehow wind could walk by with causing anything to move we wouldn’t know it was there. The result of its presence is what we see. On faith we believe it to be something called wind.
A few days before watching the wind, I got up one morning and opened the freezer to get one of the glasses that we keep there so that we can pour soymilk into them and enjoy the frosty result. However, I didn’t see any.
I realized that they were all sitting in the sink to be washed. This meant that I would have to use a room temperature glass. Del, sitting in the other room, heard me open the freezer and said, “I put a green glass in there for you.”
Looking in the freezer again, I saw the green glass. It was invisible to me the first time because I was only looking for the clear glasses that we normally use. What I needed and wanted had been provided for me, but my clear glass viewpoint had hidden it from me.
I realized that I should have started from the perception that since Del was up first he would have obviously noticed that the glasses were not in the freezer, and since it is in his loving nature to make sure there was a glass for me, he would have done so.
If I had started my thinking from this viewpoint, I would have immediately seen the green glass. But, I didn’t.
This is the way it always is. Our perception, our viewpoint, our accepted paradigm tells us what is present even when we don’t see it, or hides it from us even when we are staring right at it.
As I watched the wind in the trees I thought about Spirit, Divine Love, Infinite Mind and Its invisibleness. Always present we only know it because of the results of Its presence.
There is a big difference between wind and Spirit however. We accept the results of wind. We debate, hide from, and discount for the most part, the results of Spirit.
Which brings us back to symbol of the glasses in the freezer. We don’t see the results of Spirit, Divine Love or Infinite Mind because we are looking for it the way we expect it to be rather than absolutely knowing that because it is Divine Love’s nature to provide, what we need must be present now.
In fact, we do the exact opposite. We talk about, read about, learn about, discuss, plan, prepare, and worry from the point of view that what we need is not here now, and most likely not here in the future either.
With this point of view, is it possible to see the green glass in our lives? No. Yet we agree that Spirit’s nature is to give, give always; give without restraint, prejudice, care, time frame or limit. Yet we don’t constantly live our lives from this viewpoint.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if we all practiced even just a few minutes a day, to open our perception and look for the results of the infinite invisible Divine Love, Infinite Intelligence of Spirit? Since perception determines the outcome, why not choose to actually think from and live from this infinite viewpoint?
Separate yourselves from the worldview thinking that is full of opinions, philosophies and “how to do it.” Shift your perception, and than open the freezer dear Loved One–the glass is ready for you.
