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...

Love is a Bowl...

“This is Love…

Simple, bare awareness
that is already open,
accepting,
encompassing…


An honest,
courageous,
willingness
to be
open
(vulnerable)
to
the whole
tidal cycle
of our
life
experience,

moment by moment…


Allowing the entirety
of our experience to sit
in a bowl
of
awareness.

…a spacious
containing
of all
that is…”


Genju


With gratitude to Genju at 108zenbooks
for these beautiful words that I used from
her post “Love”
to create this poem…

Please see her post
for the full context
and a wonderful practice
in awareness…



We are all held in the bowl of the Heart!
Love to all my wonderfully wise
companions on the Road…

    1. Welcome Susannah! Well these words aren't mine! I hope you went over to Genju's blog 108zenbooks (see links in the post above) to read the full context. I just extracted the words and created the poem because what she wrote spoke deeply to my heart... Your blog looks interesting too! I will be back to read more thoroughly...
