eyes of the heart




For one who sees with the eyes of the heart, rather than the senses, the world looks different; the blades of grass, the song of the birds, the drops of dew, all are seen to be none other than the One Life that surrounds us in every moment. 
They see the One in every creature and every creature in the One… they see everything with an equal eye.

—Bhagavad Gita


If you cannot feel God within, you cannot feel him without.

The first step is to feel God within.

The second step is to realize God without, to realize that God is not the creator, he is creation. He is not separate from creation. He is the force and consciousness of creation.

The world is God's dance; the world is God's play.

—Swami Dhyan Giten


Ether, air, fire, water, earth, planets, all creatures, directions, trees and plants, rivers and seas, they are all organs of God’s body. 
Remembering this a devotee respects all species.

—The Srimad Bhagavatam (2.2.41)
