Life's Hidden Picture Game -- A Spiritual Practice with Stereograms
This practice is based on our experience with 3-D stereogram pictures -- those pictures that look like a simple design, but when you stare at them intently, all of a sudden a 3-D picture pops right out at you! We believe the world of appearance is much like these pictures.
(I created the one on the left ... see if you see hearts.)
Whenever you find yourself in a difficult situation -- when things appear to be falling apart -- when you are going through an emotional melt-down -- STOP! In that moment of awareness that you are not in alignment with your highest, most elevated level of Being, go into the Silence and affirm that this is simply the cluttered world of appearance, and within this picture is pure joy, absolute peace, incredible good. Choose to see from enlightened eyes.
Bonus fun: here is a website that contains a huge variety of 3-D stereogram pictures for you to play with!
