What we cannot see—an unseen world.

“Our critics make us strong!
Our fears make us bold!
Our haters make us wise!
Our foes make us active!
Our obstacles make us passionate!
Our losses make us wealthy!
Our disappointments make us appointed!
Our unseen treasures give us a
known peace!

Whatever is designed against us will work for us!”
― Israelmore AyivorThe Great Hand Book of Quotes

tAbout 5yrs, back I had presented a paper on the presence and absence of spirituality in disease at the International Conference of Religious studies. And at the same conference was Tanya Shah a Pakistani researcher who has done research on the Kaala saaya. She had beautiful pictures of the aura of the kaala saaya, and the safed saya.

It then occurred to me, just because we cannot see something, it does not mean that it does not exist.  This non belief makes us deny the existence of spirit guides, angels and other unseen helpers in our lives. However whoever has encountered such beings can attest to the fact that they do, indeed exist just as our breath exists keeping us alive though we can’t see it. Just like we know that the wind exists because we can feel it on our skin and hear it moving the leaves on the trees. There are lot of things around us but we know exist because we experience it.

Just imagine that there is a lady bug on a leaf, to the lady bug’s scope of vision, it can see the leaf and what it is in its vision scope. We assume it is not as much as ours and it cannot see the tree, or the grass below. When it comes the person who is standing below, he cannot see the lady bug because it is on the upper surface, but the lady bug is very much there.

People with open hearts and willingness to experience have seen and experienced these being of other realm. Actually till recently many could, but it is only recently that people have fallen into distrusting the existence of what they cannot see.  What healers, teachers and people who have experience say,  is close your eyes in meditation and visualization, or engaging the unseen through the written words and we begin to experience the wonder and compassion of the unseen world.
