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...

Falling Off The Edge...

Days unfold like waterfalls.
Nights are welcome Silence
at the window -
just sitting,
allowing
the flow
of the
day
to
come
to
the
edge
and
gently
fall
away
~
~
~
into
rest
~
~
~


A smooth
sliding
movement
of
awareness
finding
its
own
Rhythm
empties
out
the
eddies
of
life
~
~
~


Letting go
of trying

trying
to
make
sense
of
life;
trying
to
make
anything
happen
~
~
~

Just deeply relaxing

Just
 falling

into
the
still
rest
 of inner
Silence
~
~
~
the mind
slips off the edge
and
down
the
sides
~
~
~
resting


Sitting
under
the
cascading
              waterfall of
                                   deep Silence
feeling
               the gentle
rhythmic
              movement
envelope
           my being
I slip
       into
           its
                    soft
                                  crevice
            into the
 folds of
                         deep
                                               Stillness


the softness
of
just Being

  2. My reaction to this was the same as Uma's. I breathed a deep sigh of relaxation. Such a lovely sentiment. Would love to spend more time in this place of accepting the flow of life, not worrying or asking why.

    1. Thank you Dear ZDS :) Me too - wanting to spend more time in this place - to deepen into that Natural State - which is why I think I write about it when I experience it - to remind me of what it feels like!

  3. I can just "hear" your voice saying these words to me as I sit in meditation and stare out the window. To let go of trying, doing trying to figure out the why of things. such a wonderful place to be. thank you and love the drawing.

  6. I wish I could be that calm... wow. Thank you for creating such a wonderful picture/reminder of just setting everything down, all that baggage I carry around all the time.

    1. It seems it is a continual practice :) Believe me I'm not this calm! Especially with "the situation" next door :) But when I spend time in Silence - Meditation - and deep relaxation I am able to see beyond all the surface stuff and a lot of the mind and emotional baggage drops away naturally. And I can then just rest in that space of calm abiding. I'd love to be able to experience this continuously!
