Seeing The World Through The Eyes Of Source

Today was one of those absolutely perfect days. After a week of volatile, windy weather and a 30 degree plunge in temperature, the weather today was a refreshing change of beautiful fall sunshine filtering through quiet, still air. I sat outside this afternoon, absorbing the wonderful warm energy of the sun, reading Abraham and listening to the sounds of neighborhood kids laughing as they played. My best friend Sweetpea, (the small black and white Chihuahua pictured in the post below) was laying in the yard under our big tree, enjoying the beautiful day with me.

Her cute little nose was busily sniffing the delicious smells silently and invisibly flowing through the atmosphere. I had a moment to reflect on those odors, which were otherwise non existent to my human senses, that she seemed to be so thoroughly enjoying. I only became aware of these odors by observing my dog's twitching nose. And it suddenly made me realize our reality is based on those vibrations that we are able to observe with our physical senses through seeing, hearing, smelling, touching, tasting. But there is so much more going on around us that our human senses miss.

As I was thinking about how much of the world going on around us there really is that we're not aware of because its "under the radar" of what our human bodies are capable of interpreting, I was struck by what I was reading from Abraham. It was about being in a state of appreciation. Being totally tuned in, tapped in and turned on. When you're observing things in a state of appreciation, you're seeing the world through the eyes of Source. It's finding the alignment with you're Inner Being, which is the part of you directly connected with Source, the part of you that is Source.

When you see things in a state of appreciation, you become more aware, more tuned in to whatever you're experiencing. I realized why everything seemed so crisp, so wonderful, so alive about the world I was experiencing in my front yard today. I was appreciating the life giving energy of our sun, energy that sustains every living cell on this planet. I was appreciating the air I was breathing into my lungs, how clean it smelled. I was appreciating how still the air itself was, one of those rare moments when there is not even the slightest hint of a breeze. I was appreciating how clearly sound vibrations travel through such still air. And looking at one of the cutest creatures on Earth, lounging under a beautiful Mulberry tree, I appreciated the amazing sensitivity of a dog's nose, which had made me aware of everything else around me that I couldn't see, hear, touch, taste or smell but exists, nonetheless.
