” Awareness is not the same as thought. It lies beyond thinking, although it makes use of thinking, honoring its value and its power. Awareness is more like a vessel which can hold and contain our thinking, helping us to see and know our thoughts rather than getting caught up in them as reality”

“Thoughts can create such a barrier that even if you are standing before a beautiful flower, you will not be able to see it. Your eyes are covered with layers of thought.”
“You have to be silent, utterly silent, not even a flicker of thought – and the beauty explodes….”

“Always aim at complete harmony of thought, word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.”
The natural process to Renew, Reclaim, and Rebirth after every rain,
How wonderful is that!
The rain is a gift.
Gazing out my window this morning I realized that last night’s rain cleansed our beautiful Earth.
The natural process to Renew, Reclaim, and Rebirth after every rain;
How wonderful is that!
I observed that my soul needed an inner cleansing as well.
Our bodies undergo a process of cell death followed by a truly miraculous cell renewal.
Why can’t our conscious self?
We have the power to do this for our souls to sustain life .
I thank my inner Goddess for her patience when I need to regain my postion next to her .
Today I will honor my inner Temple and celebrate the gift of life.
Namaste, Jennifer Miller
Today is Moon Day and time for inner reflection. What is your soul telling you? In the quiet moments breathe and listen...that still, small voice will whisper your heart's longings. It will sound like music and your soul will be filled with peace. It will feel beautiful and a knowingness will fill your entire spirit...Jennifer
