Living Far Removed From Nature

Living Far Removed From Nature

How have we become separated from the conscious awareness of the very Life that flows through our Being? Withdrawing ourselves far from the Natural World, this is what has happened—

Long ago people lived and breathed as One Being within the very heart of Nature’s life. They experienced Her beauty and Her power, each day of their lives. With such deep and personal contact, the Divine Essence of the Source of Life was known, honored and enjoyed, and ever- present on Earth.

Thus it did not take much training for their little ones to begin to under- stand—that the life they saw reflected in the eyes of the eagle or the lion, the bear or the deer, was as vital and Wisdom-full as the life they saw reflected in the eyes of their own dear family.

The children were lovingly taught that each being carries a different reflec- tion of the Inner Wisdom and power, that arrives from the One Source: One bird can see from great heights, and plot an instant kill, while another has eyes that hold no such intention of harm.

In this way it became clear, through daily immersion in the Natural world, that the Inner, Living-Light that enabled each being to have their own, unique capacity, was the same as the Inner, Living- Light that beamed through their own eyes. And it is this direct, personal experience of the One Source, that flows through all creatures, all existence, that is in such great lack, and need today. 

Living removed, as we are, 
from the daily experiences of heart opening,

that automatically occur within our body, mind and spirit
whenever  we are in Nature’s Presence,

has led us to believe that we are separate
from the world that surrounds us, 

and the Holy Source of All.

Following the Inner Voice of the Divine Will

Following the Inner Voice of the Divine Will

Throughout ones days and nights one can come to know when they are moving in Harmony with the Divine Will.

Just try to go against the Inner nudging sense, that ‘tells’ you to take this apple and not that one at the store; to call your friend right now; to turn the corner so you will find a parking space; to not eat that fourth piece of pizza, or have that cup of coffee at 9:00 pm. Just try to not listen, and see what happens.:“I ‘knew’ I should have called my friend, not eaten that extra piece of pizza. I knew that parking place was there, but I decided to go another way.” These examples may be called our ‘intuition.’  And there are other examples of guidance that tell us the big stuff, such as which house to move into, or move from; which job to take or to leave.

Hearing and choosing to listen to this Inner Voice occurs mostly unconsciously. Yet those following Spiritual Paths differ from most others in that the process of surrendering to their Inner Voice becomes both a daily listening habit, and a conscious seeking throughout their lives.

With the deepening of their daily meditations, practices and prayers, Spiritual students soon begin to feel, and to sense, the vast difference between the voice of their will, and the Voice of the Will of the Divine. And, though they may be unaware, the result of this deep, Spiritual work, benefits and elevates the whole of Humanity.

Welcome to Emi Miller’s Poetry, Prose and Beyond

Welcome to “Poetry, Prose and Beyond”. Some of you have been with us for 18 years, some for 10 years, and some are new, yet together we have traveled on one of four private list-serves, daily and faithfully enjoying messages of Inspiration that have opened our hearts and minds, to the Beauty and Joy of the vast world of Nature, and tolerance and peace, toward all, no matter their religious or Spiritual traditions, gender, race or culture.

This website is being started to celebrate the publication of my book,  In Wisdom’s Light, A Message of Peace for All People, Vol. I. It is a collection of some of the daily posts and photos that have been posted over these years. Now they are all together, and able to be easily carried with, reflected upon, and shared with family and friends. Here is the new book cover:

In Wisdom’s Light, a Message of Peace for All People, Vol. I.

It is hard to believe that 18 years have passed since work on  “In Wisdom’s Light” was begun. Yet here it is, and very exciting it is, too! It is now available on Amazon in full color or black and white paperback and also available on Kindle. There are three Volumes of “In Wisdom’s Light” currently in the works, and more will be said about Vol. II and III as they are developed. I will post both the from and the back cover in the drop down above entitled: ‘Purchase’. You will also find a link there to the Amazon site for more information.

Volumes II and III will include ancient and modern teaching stories from the world’s faith traditions, as well as offering more of the Spiritual and religious leaders, poets and modern day leaders whose lives bless our own with a vision of love and beauty, and how we can work together to achieve a peaceful world. If you are among those familiar with this body of work, or if you are brand new, I hope you will enjoy hanging out with us, and sharing these daily offerings with your family and friends.

So come and enjoy, and together we will respectfully tread the ancient paths created by beloved Souls, and make a few new friends, and forge some paths of our own, as we journey and remember the common ground we share–with each other, and the Source that Creates All.

You may make comments, create some new friends, share with old friends…for all with warm and open hearts are welcome here.

all the best,

Emi

One Source, One Divine Song

 

Underneath and above and throughout
the variety of different paths

and ancient texts
there is but One Source,
One Divine Song

Given to and sung by all hearts
throughout all seasons and climbs
all cultures and epochs.

It is a song of Peace,
of Harmony and Love

spoken by all lips,
it Lives with-in all who have
ever drawn breath—

Love one another.
Do unto others as you would have
others do unto you.

Do Justice.
Respect and care for the Earth.
And daily give thanks, to the Creator of All.

May all beings join hands and hearts together, so that the words of the Prophets will soon be fulfilled: “On that day, the Most High will be known as the Creator of All, and peace will reign on Earth.”
