At some point as I meditated about the stars and the cosmos, it occurred to me that the very same thing exists inside of my body. Every molecule, every cell, is in its own way a galaxy or a star system, and with that point of view, to them I am what I consider God when I consider the cosmos outside of me! So I can go within or without and be in a state of rapturous contemplation of the infinite. It is a huge gift! I have always known the trees were aware, but in the last few years I now know that yes the shells, the pebbles, the rocks in my yard, everything has its own spirit, it's own consciousness.
