TRUE SEEING

Meditation is the practice of release.

"True Seeing" is the regular practice of absolutely letting go of your hard and fast ideas about who you are about what life is about.

"True Seeing" is coming to grips with things as they ARE - not as you think things OUGHT to be. Empty yourself utterly and it will become obvious that:

Nothing is yours

To God belongs the east and the west; wherever you go there will be the presence of God. God is Omnipresent, Omniscient.
(Quran 2:115)

You are not in control

Such is God your Cherisher and Sustainer, there is no god except He, the Creator of all things. You shall worship Him alone. He is in control of all things.
(Quran 6:102)

Everything is temporary

Know that this worldly life is no more than play and games, and boasting among you, and hoarding of money and children. It is like abundant rain that produces plants and pleases the disbelievers. But then the plants turn into useless hay, and are blown away by the wind. In the Hereafter there is either severe retribution, or forgiveness from God and approval. This worldly life is no more than a temporary illusion.
(Quran 57:20)
