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...

For Those Who Suffer...

Experiencing anxiety over life changes lately
pales in comparison

to the loss and grief being experienced around the world,
through war, tragedy and natural disaster,
especially in Japan at this time.

This post is to remember all those
who cry out from
the pain of their heart.

I pray that the cries of the
brokenhearted are heard
and that all will *feel*
cradled in the Heart
of The Beloved.


There is a brokenness
out of which comes the unbroken,
a shatteredness
out of which blooms the unshatterable.

There is a sorrow
beyond all grief which leads to joy
and a fragility
out of whose depths emerges

There is a hollow space
too vast for words
through which we pass
with each loss,
out of whose darkness
we are sanctioned into being.

There is a cry deeper than all sound
whose serrated edges cut the heart
as we break open to the place inside
which is unbreakable and whole,
while learning to sing.

Rashani – 1991


Trust that a thread of love
operates in everything
and listen deeply
for this Love…



And someone from Japan wrote
on their Facebook page:

“Land moves, heart is still.”


Blessings to all…


  1. I love these words and reflections. "Trust that a thread of love operates in everything" - what a beautiful approach to life.

  2. Thank you Leslie and Kristen...

  3. "Land moves, heart is still" - oh how powerfully quietening are those five little words.

    I am so grateful to you dear Christine, for this post and I join you in your heart-full prayer.

    May we be graced to "listen deeply for this Love." Incomprehensible. Unknowable.

    A deep bow to you.

  4. Hello Dear ml ~ Yes, those words just jumped out at me too - "Land moves, heart is still" - when I heard them on the news report - powerful indeed.

    And your words as well, over on your blog today - "let them know they are loved." That really is the crux of it isn't it... Sending whispers of Love to hurting hearts everywhere in whatever way we can - practically or on the winds...

    Much love to you - C

  5. Beautiful...and we are all loved.
