Character Matters

Meditation; Character Matters

What is the content of our character? Martin Luther King, Jr., in his famous I Have a Dream speech noted,

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. How do these words resonate with us today in a culture that allows some of the most vile language to be broadcast over the airwaves, a lack of respect for difference is imbedded in many sectors of our society, and a disregard for elders, the most vulnerable, and the least of these is our midst, is still all too common. The change that needs to happen is not “out there” but within me, within you, within individuals that care enough to seek inner transformation.

Stop wasting energy trying to change others. Go within. Be transformed by the renewing you your mind.

anthony glenn miller

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Romans 12:2

 

Meaning

Meditation: Meaning

Enter the wonder.

Wonderful beyond it all.

Beyond pain, springtime.

anthony glenn miller

Jesus looked directly at them and asked,

Then what is the meaning of that which is written:  The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone’?

Luke 20:17

Joy

Meditation: Joy

A deep true knowing.

A well of living water.

A joy and beauty.

anthony glenn miller

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23

Life

Meditation: Life

Look within and know.

Look within and grow.

Look within and flow.

anthony glenn miller

I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.

John 17:13

Silent

Meditation: Silent

Remind yourself of the true WAY, in the silence.

Let go of the inconsequential, in the silence.

Be blessed, in the silence.

anthony glenn miller

Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.

Proverbs 17:28

If only you would be altogether silent! For you, that would be wisdom.

Job 13:5

Beauty

Meditation: Beauty

What’s your stance in the midst of your circumstance? Welcome the LIGHT. Welcome the LIGHT by asking, seeking, knocking at the door of the still small voice within. Beyond thoughts and words. In the stillness. In the silence. In the Spirit.

anthony glenn miller

Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.

John 7:38

Architecture

Meditation: Architecture

How do we design our spaces for living and dying well? Buildings are constructed from a certain way of viewing and understanding the world. In all our designs and ways of arranging spaces, let’s make our spaces and  gatherings outwardly as well as inwardly beautiful. Outwardly by designing the space beautifully. Inwardly by living by the Great Spirit.

Beauty doesn’t have to come with a high price tag. Beauty is found where loving and thoughtful souls abound.

Be bold. Be beautiful. Keep it simple.

anthony glenn miller

Unless the Lord builds the house,
the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the guards stand watch in vain.

In vain you rise early
and stay up late,
toiling for food to eat—
for he grants sleep to[a] those he loves.

Psalm 127:1-2

Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me.

John 15:4

Wonderful

Meditation: Wonderful

Some will ask, how is this a wonderful  world? So much pain. So much strife. So much betrayal. Still, through it all, humanity and dignity abide. All souls, and all of creation, are honored by the bearers of the Light. Enlightened souls add salt and light. Salt to preserve what is good. Light to remind those in darkness that there’s beauty, hope, love, and joy.

Be fabulous. Be wonderful. Give thanks for the wonderful souls that are in the world, but not of it.

anthony glenn miller

I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.

John 17:14-16

 

Language of Silence

Meditation: Language of Silence

A forgotten friend.

Inner language of silence.

The path of mystics.

anthony glenn miller

Therefore the prudent will keep silent in such a time; for it is an evil time.

Amos 5:13

For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him.

Psalm 62:5

 

Nature

Meditation: Nature & Machines

Nature & Machines.

The machines in the garden.

Honor creation.

anthony glenn miller

God blessed them, and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.

Genesis 1:28
