The above quote got me thinking. Praying to God is easy because we are in the asking mode – give us good health, peace of mind or forgiveness. We may even thank God for the day and for taking care of us.
But why is it difficult to find God in the smallest of things? Perhaps the author believes that the universe and all that is in it is a manifestation of God. We can see and feel God through the beauty of flowers, the vastness of the ocean, the tranquility of the lake and calm of watching the morning dew on a leaf. All the forces and natural laws around us are also His creation.
But because our minds are cluttered chasing material things and embroiled in our competitive life that we fail to notice the presence of His creations. It is only a calm mind in a state of full awareness that can enjoy natures bounty and draw strength by feeling the presence of the Almighty.
