Radhanath Swami on Seeing God's Love Always
When we know God, we understand that He is perfect and complete and everything emanating from Him is perfect and complete. It may appear inconceivable and impossible to imagine how things in this world are going on perfectly. But the only imperfection is our vision. Our spiritual vision is clouded by the cataract of ignorance. But understanding and pursuing the truth, we can remove that cataract and see how everything within our environment is perfect, how everything is the loving grace of God. This is not simply an intellectual understanding, but we can experience it from the core of our heart - God’s expression of love in every condition of life. This is real peace. And it is not intangible, it is not something impossible. It is as close to us as our own soul. We are running in every other direction to find pleasure and peace. We simply have to redirect our priorities in life towards our soul and towards our service of God.
