Giten: The inner being is like a small, individual river flowering towards the Ocean.

Giten vid sjö

“Meditation expands our inner being. The inner being is like a small, individual river flowering towards the Ocean.

In meditation, I feel how my inner being expands into an inner ocean, which is part of everything, which is one with Existence.

Through the inner being, we come in contact with the inner ocean, the undefined and boundless within ourselves, where we are one with life. We realize that God is part of life.

We realize that God is not a person, but the consciousness that is part of everything. We find God in a flower, in a tree, in the eyes of a child or in a playful dog.

Through discovering our inner being, we discover that we are also part of the flower, the child or the dog. We realize that God is everywhere.”
