Meditation: prajna, the nonduality of obvious and subtle

A meditation practice invites noticing the relatedness of the obvious and the subtle. Whether the macro of the world and the micro of your life mirroring each other in some way or displaying how interwoven they are or the example of the change in seasons which comes on slowly and with subtlety until one week, yup, the season has changed.

There is the blatant immediacy and feelings of an emotion; and then there is the complexity of sub-emotions, narratives, and thoughts that subtly are present within the obvious and immediate.

Examples abound. We meditate on and with this nondual/non-two feature of perception and our life. Even the image below displays this: the obvious sunflower and the less obvious prayer flags or other flowers.
