Welcome...

Come meander with me on the pathless path of the Heart
in these anecdotal,
sometimes inspiring, sometimes personal meanderings of the Heart's opening in the every-day-ness of Life...

Wilderness Wanderers...


The following poem was created from an email dialogue I had with
  Chuck Surface last month.
Most of the words are his, some are mine, and some a synthesis of
 the essence of the dialogue. I was so inspired by his message
 that I couldn’t help putting the words together in poem form.
  I merely played with the words as they sang to my Heart…

 He has kindly given his permission for me to post it here…




Wilderness Wanderers

We, of the Wanderers Tribe,
wander The Vastness
of
The Unknown…

instinctually
 seeking the warmth
and shelter of a council fire.

Wandering from encampment
to encampment
we recognize the gifts of each;
we learn and are blessed,
but find ourselves
riding on once again
into


The
 Wilderness…


As is our human nature,
we seek again and again
for the comfort and shelter
of an encampment
with which our Heart resonates
 and our Being finds affinity.

But time and again
the constraints of
the “known” and “accepted”
descriptions of
”reality’ and “truth”
are more than we can bear,
and The Vastness
calls to us…

Wilderness Wanderers
will never be at

Peace or Illumined
within the constraints of
 any council fire

Vagabonds of the Heart,
we are not aimless,
but seek only the Heart’s Truth,
beyond  tradition,
beyond definition

We know that however much our
human nature craves
comfort
warmth
nourishment
and
fellowship,
these
will not be satisfied
in the encampments…

For we are Wilderness Wanderers
wandering the
Immeasurable
V a s t n e s s
of
The Great Mystery


And
 if we are Graced,
we find there
ones such as ourselves…

Wandering…

Together,
yet in solitude,
we band of Vagrants
sit…

…within and as the Great Mystery…

Unsheltered by
concepts
theories
and
conjecture


Nomads by Nature
We are blessed to be
simple
Wanderers

With Gratitude to Chuck…

~*~


I am going to be wandering in the Inner Wilderness
 for a while,
taking a break from blogging,
refocusing inward again toward the Silence and Love
 of the Great Mystery, the Inner Cosmos; playing
 in the delight and Joy of just Being – Just living
Dancing with the Universe -
intuitively moving *with* Life…

Maybe I will find you wandering there too
in the Inner Wilderness…

Just BE...


“The trick was to know that his true nature lived
everywhere, at once, across
space and time
[and that]
freedom is the very nature of his being…”

Jonathan Livingston Seagull
Richard Bach

~

Only BE...

Be the Stillness that you are...
Bring everything into Stillness.
Entrain to the Stillness of Being...


Just Trust
Just Love
Just BE

At the Core of Being - A Rose...

Rosette Nebula - From: The Invisible Universe
by David Malin - copyright 1999




At the very Core of our Being
there is complete stillness,
a dynamic
Stillness
of Being
~
Just Being

There is utter awareness
of all life, all existence,
not *as* form,
but
the felt sense of the
ISness of Being ~
of Life
~
 Living

In the Silence of
this dynamic Stillness
one is aware of
 the cocooning hush
of The Mystery,
of Primordial Existence
that holds the unmanifest
in the comfort of
 Its Womb
before its birth
into
form

@

In this Stillness
the rhythmic breath
of the Cosmos
pulses like
 waves

<<>>

The originating cosmic energies
of an Alive Cosmos
generate themselves
into Existence
spiraling outward
from the
 Core ~

Like a stellar rose
that gives birth to itself
through spiraling open its petals,
 blossoming
into
time
and
space

*

All Existence is at
the Core of our Being ~
In every atom, every cell…
We are the living Cosmos…

~*~

Existence lives ItSelf,
in a perpetual unfoling of Life ~
The Core of Being birthing ItSelf
in and *as* us ~
The umanifest manifesting
the formless into form ~

At the Core of Being
 there is only

Aliveness
Stillness
Silence
Peace
Love
Life

It is who we are…

Meditative Writings

"As a poet.....I can only gaze at the Universe
In its full, true form,
at the millions of stars
in the sky
carrying their huge harmonious
beauty -
Never breaking their rhythm,
or losing their tune.
Never deranged.
And never stumbling...

I can only gaze and see
in the sky,
the spreading layers
of a vast, radiant,
petaled rose..."


Rabindranath Tagore
from: "The Sickbed"

Ever Emerging Love...

The Love that “emerges” from the Inner Heart
when the Inner Sanctuary opens
has no “object”
of its
 Love -
no “other.”

This Love does not see another
 as “other” than
 ItSelf…

THIS Love just LOVES…
Love – loving

A Causeless Love

My first glimpse left me in awe
of its Vastness…
its Clarity…
its Lovingness…


This Love doesn’t love
”because of” - - -
It loves without reason

It is Primordial Love
Unconditioned
Untouched

It loves “just because” ~
because it IS Love…


Love beyond comprehension…
Love beyond “love”…

How could one possibly
comprehend the
limitless,
unbounded,
uncontained
Love
that
just
Is
~
~
~

Effluent Love
flowing from ItSelf

It is not an object called “love”
or an attribute that “I”
can achieve or attain…

But is the pure,
perpetual

GLOW

of
Effulgent Love

Self-sustaining
 Brilliance

from      the
Heart of Hearts
Self-Generating
Ever Emerging

Strange Peace...

 A stranger arrived
this mid-winter day…

In Her presence
everything settled…

everything let go…
all resistance
all struggle

everything became still…
…inside…

everything within me rested,
not lifeless – just rested…

everything felt strangely

~ Peaceful ~


When She came
life was allowed to be as life is,
as I listened deeply to
Her whispers…


She felt ‘strange’ to me
only because She
came unexpectedly…

She is larger than life;
beyond mental understanding
or explanation…

Yet, I know that I know this “stranger.”
She is strangely familiar…
I’m sure we have met before…


I welcomed Her in...

She wrapped Her mantel of Peace
around my Heart…

The Fire-Light within began to brighten…
Love emerged…

 She was Home...
