“There seems to be
no unexpressed self
in animals, as if
they are as fully
themselves in flesh
as possible, with no
lag of consciousness
to fill up, while we
keep trying to grow
into something else.”

“I've always been serious that way, trying to evolve to a more conscious state. Funny thing about that, though. You tweak yourself, looking for more love, less lust, more compassion, less jealousy. You keep tweaking, keep adjusting those knobs until you can no longer find the original settings. In some sense, the original settings are exactly what I'm looking for-a return to the easygoing guy I was before my world got complicated, the nice guy who took things as they came and laughed so hard the blues would blow away in the summer wind.”

Bill Withers (b. William Harrison “Bill” Withers, Jr. on July 4, 1938, singer-songwriter and musician who has been covered by many artists; best known for writing and singing “Lean On Me,” and “Ain’t No Sunshine” and much much more)

“Cultural survival is not about preservation, sequestering indigenous peoples in enclaves like some sort of zoological specimens. Change itself does note destroy a culture. All societies are constantly evolving. Indeed a culture survives when it has enough confidence in its past and enough say in its future to maintain its spirit and essence through all the changes it will inevitably undergo. ”

Wade Davis (anthropologist, author of fifteen books, and an Explorer in Residence at the National Geographic Society; best known for writing “Serpent and the Rainbow” and “The Wayfinders: Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in the Modern World”)

“For a Siddhar yogi, time is precious. It is important to utilize every moment to evolve into ever higher states of consciousness. We understand stagnancy as decay and for growth, we constantly discard the old to welcome change as the new. We tap into the magical abilities to evolve. "Every saint was a sinner in the past" maxim holds true. In the intensity of our yogic pursuit we evolve quickly. By evolving, we know that is the greatest gift of a lifetime we could ever receive- to be angelic as a being of consciousness. Consciousness is ever evolving and dynamic in transforming.”

Nandhiji (Indian author, teacher, yogi; best known for writing “Mastery of Consciousness: Awaken the Inner Prophet: Liberate Yourself with Yogic Wisdom”)

“There are two kinds of people. One kind, you can just tell by looking at them at what point they congealed into their final selves. It might be a very nice self, but you know you can expect no more surprises from it. Whereas, the other kind keep moving, changing... They are fluid. They keep moving forward and making new trysts with life, and the motion of it keeps them young. In my opinion, they are the only people who are still alive. You must be constantly on your guard against congealing.”

Gail Godwin (b. 1937, feminist and writer known for her portrayals of women and themes common in the South; published 16 books over a span of 40 years of writing)

It’s fascinating to live amongst nature, isn’t it?   There’s so much that God’s creations can teach us. Whether it’s the sky, our pets, wild animals, or the plant world. Each exudes its own wisdom, beauty, and presence.

I considered myself very fortunate to live amongst nature, and am always excited when one of God’s amazing creatures makes itself known to me, well mostly. I believe when a dragonfly or a woodpecker shows up its when I need their wisdom the most.

When I used to walk with a partner in the wee early hours in the morning around 5:30 I would encounter the most mysterious and nocturnal creatures, most notably owls, deer, and raccoons. Nature tended to be more quiet and pensive around that time, and would let us know when we humans were making too much of a racket.

My appreciation of nature has evolved over the years as I am becoming more in awe with their presence. Maybe that’s what nature is teaching all of us to feel the Cosmic Present in our total awareness.

We can evolve into deeper states of consciousness and awareness on many platforms focused mindfulness. Let us continue to explore what those avenues, sojourners, which can strengthen our awareness of mind, body, and spirit.

Miraculously Yours, Tonya
