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...

Open the Moon Window...


“At night, I open the window
and ask the moon to come
and press its face against mine…

Breathe into me…

Close the language-door
and open the love-window.

The moon won’t use the door,
only the window.”

Rumi

~


And what if the moon
whispered:


“…I want to know what you ache for,
and if you dare to dream of
meeting your heart’s longing…”


“…show me how you reach
inward and open outward
to feel the kiss of
the Mystery…”


“What if your task is simply to unfold,
to become who you already are
in your essential nature -
gentle, compassionate,
and capable of living fully…”


“What if the essence of who you are
and always have been
is enough…”


“…remember…
you belong to the sacred life force;
you are an embodiment of
the sacred Mystery,
surrounded and held
by The Beloved…”


“…dance with me in the infinite pause
before the next great inhale
of breath that is breathing
us all into being…”


Oriah

I took the creative liberty of combining the above lines from
two different poems by Canadian author and poet Oriah,
as if combining quotes,
maintaining the essence of her writings.

The first stanza is a quote from her poem:
The Invitation
copyright 1999

The other stanzas are taken from
her poem and quotes from her book:
The Dance
copyright 2001

You can read the full poems on
her website:

  8. Isn't it the dawning moon of mind
    That dispels the torment
    Of our disturbing conceptualizations

    And suddenly we are set free
