A simple method of visualizing the flames is to fix in mind the memory of a blazing campfire; retaining the concept of the action of the physical flames, see them take on the color of the God flame you desire to invoke. Now enlarge your image of the flames to fill your entire consciousness. Then visualize yourself stepping into the center of God’s flaming Presence and feel his love enfold you as a thousand-petaled lotus—each flame a petal of God’s all-embracing consciousness.
