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...

Tell me who "I" am...


“In the secret recesses of the heart
beyond the teachings of this world
calls a still, small voice
singing a song unchanged
from the foundation of the world.

Speak to me in sunsets and in starlight.
Speak to me in the eyes of a child.
You Who call to me from a smile.
My cosmic beloved…

Tell me who I am
And who I always will be.
Help me to remember.”

Joan Borysenko

Self is what you are

Fathomless

Self is the Heart

It shines to ItSelf by ItSelf
in ItSelf…

Self is what gives breath to life…

Only Self is…

Self is the indwelling of all beings

It is always here

And you are always That

It is your Heart

…all comes back to the Heart…

Papaji

  6. Ahhhh - Beloved Life! - looking and always finding, finding the inescapable Self.

    This is a beautiful post: what an inspired idea to link a question with the answer in two lucid quotes.

    Thank you dear One ~ ml

  12. You might like this one:

    I am not I.
    I am this one
    Walking beside me whom I do not see,
    Whom at times I manage to visit,
    And whom at other times I forget;
    The one who remains silent when I talk,
    The one who forgives, sweet, when I hate,
    The one who takes a walk where I am not,
    The one who will remain standing when I die.
