If you want to find to inner balance, you will have to be in balance with the world around you. This exercise will help you understand that our world is only a small window into a larger reality. This meditation is called "looking into the small world."
Sit down on a meadow and concentrate on a small piece of earth of the size your palm. Study everything there. You should feel quite small here. Pretend you're exploring this small world. Imagine you're in a large jungle. You'll be astonished by all the things to explore there. The target of this meditation is to look at our world with love and awareness.
