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.
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.
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
