"For those who see Me in everything and see everything in Me, I am never lost — nor are they ever lost to Me.” (Bhagavad Gita 6.30)

Sculptor Henry Moore (1898-1986) collected rocks and shells and studied their holes and hollow spaces, searching for what he called nature’s invisible “principles of form and rhythm.” His series of reclining figures (like the one above from 1951) is as much about the mystery of what cannot be see — the spaces between things — as about what the eye perceives.

That’s a good metaphor for the life of a Krishna devotee, who learns to see divinity and meaning in the invisible spaces of life. Slow down, breathe and peer deeper into the mystery of the everyday. You will be surprised at how much beauty there is, looking you in the eye. 

To cultivate a vision of life’s hidden realities, the Vedic texts recommend chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.
