“knowledge is not the things that are usually associated with it. It is not ideas. It is not a body of information. It is not a system of belief. It is not a process of self-evaluation. It is the great mystery of your life. Its outward manifestations are
wise perception in the present and in the future
and wise understanding of the past
But despite these great achievements of mind, Knowledge is greater than this.
It is your True Self,
a Self that is not apart from life.”
Marshall Vian Summers
Today’s communion with nature provided some of the outward manifestations of this “knowledge”
The water, its mystery. It’s flowing nature, its sound and vibration over the earth’s rocks. How I’ve taken this magnificent element for granted.
How I don’t even know what water really is.
The trees. The moss. The soaring wings of the turkey buzzards high above the mountain tops. The white puffs of cloud against perfect blue space.
Tears barely expressed my joy. amazement and gratitude for being present as part of the magnificence of Life’s expression.
I thought to myself, I should be screaming and singing and jumping for joy. But no one would have understood. So just tears.
Today, in Nature’s beauty, I saw and felt and heard and embodied inexplicable knowing that is not apart from Life.
