Words for Meditation:
“Human beings are part of the environment and are influenced by it. Certain environments are conducive to the development and enrichment of spirituality. All are, by nature, spiritual. There are hundreds of things in the surroundings, which help us to discover God. Such environments are thought of as the manifestation of God, the creator.
“A gigantic river that runs by; a vast green meadow; a huge forest with animals roaming around; birds that sing and fly with tiny wings; flowers that open with variety of colors; peaceful dawn that dispels the darkness; light emerging gradually every morning; brightly shining sun in the middle of the day; radiance of the calmly descending sun in the evening spreading beauty in the horizon; thousands of shining stars at night; thunder that flashes across the sky; the plants of the earth and the fishes of the sea; cold wind in the winter and the pleasant sun in the summer; clouds that move slowly under the sky; the mountains, springs, trees, breeze, flood - all these enable the spiritually-minded persons to discover God in the environment.”
