Prayer in Nature - Our Topic in Yoga/Meditation class this week

In "The American Scholar," Ralph Waldo Emerson defines three stages for the Transcendentalist's life.

1. One studies the wisdom of the past. In terms of meditation, a review of major mystics satisfies study of the past.
2. Spiritualize life by communing with nature and learning to listen to the divine from within one's self. This idea closely resembles the Yogic thought of stilling one's mind in order to gain an understanding of higher aspects of one's self and reality. Mystics assert that divinity can be found from within.
3. After self-renewal, one works toward the renewal of society at large.
