Again, in the preface to Seeing God Everywhere, Barry McDonald, writes:
In the opening pages of this book, Frithjof Schuon speaks of “seeing God everywhere”. The “remembrance of God in all things” and the “metaphysical transparency of phenomena” are other pertinent expressions which Schuon uses to underline the immanence of God in the world. These words remind us that it is not only through sacred books like the Bible, the Upanishads, and the Quran that God reveals Himself to man. He also shows us the shining facets of His Reality through the beauties of the natural world; and just as we learn something about the nature of an artist through his art, we may discover the presence of the Creator in His creation.…

The fundamental thesis of this book is that our continuing physical and spiritual well-being is ultimately linked with our ability to “see God everywhere” and “remember Him in all things.”
When the rays of the sun
are filtered through clouds,
we cannot help being struck
by this great symbol
of Divine radiance and majesty.

But are the rays
any less real and present
when clouds do not come between us
and the Source of those rays?

Do such layers of created things
act as both a filter and a mirror,
permitting us to see the radiance within
Nature while drawing us to its very Source?
