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...

Interlude...

To *be* Love is to be vulnerably open
to everything as it is;
to chose to stay open
to life as it is…
to open to this eternal Love
that holds
everything…

…which is totally scary
to this fledgling lover of Life
that I am…


Mystic Meandering
Journal Notes - Sunday





Life is the art of drawing without an eraser...
Erasing any of it would destroy the
total experience…

a friend…





Every experience in life is an invitation
to awaken into an Awareness
of the
essential nature of Reality -
and who we really are…

Metta Zetty






“…you have forgotten
again and again
where you come from,
where you are meant to return…

Return…

Drop the distractions
and head home.
The door is open

Go in…

Deeper and deeper
inward…

…take refuge there…

This is not a time
of sorrow,
but of gratitude…”


Mirabai Starr

Extravagant Stillness

  3. lovely thoughts and pictures. esp like life is drawing without an eraser. Or maybe drawing in penink. either way, a challenge. However, if we start where we are (Ane Pema) and go from there, we are doing the best we can.

    1. Absolutely... Always starting over, without erasing any of our experiences. This quote came from a man who had fallen off a roof over a year and a half ago, crushed the bones in his ankle and lower leg, had multiple surgeries, and lengthy hospital stays over the course of a year. Ended up with a rod put in his leg, which got infected, which then had to be removed and now his leg mid shin will be amputated. After many months of depression he wrote me recently, which included this phrase - that he would not have changed any of his experience. Amazing...
