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...

Plumb The Depths...



Do not be afraid to
 plumb
 the
 depths
of your Being,
of Truth;
to question
everything
you
have
learned



Take the journey deeply inward
to your beginnings – and endings;
to the Silent hum
 in the Heart
of all Life
that sings,
and
see
for
your
self.




There are many caravans to follow,
those aspiring to enlighten you
with their words,
left like firewood to light your way,
along the road…


But only in Sacred Silence can the journey be made
to the Heart of Being;
to discover the depths of Being ~
of That which you are;
That which wants to
 *live*,
express,
and love
Here


Do not let fear stop your descent
into the inner Vastness:
the
 deep Ocean
 of the awakened
 Heart…


Be still,
 and open…


Follow the plumb line
of your breath,
past the Furies and the Sirens
into the soft ebullience
of Love
and quiet Joy
waiting for you,
like ethereal
 liquid pools
 of Light
drawing
 you
 in



Rest Here



In
the
depths
of
this
Alive
Silent
 Spacious
  Awareness

Listen to the endless
 Rhythm already
holding
you
in the cradle
 of the Heart…




Feel
 the
pervasive
contentment
of Life
Here
in
the
depths of
 Sacred
 Silence,
that animates
every cell,
every atom,
every sound,
every thought,
every feeling ~
until you *know*
THIS
*as*
 your
self


Simply Living…

  1. I was startled when I saw the words "plumb the depths" because in the retreat I went to a couple of weeks ago, James Baraz quoted Ram Dass. When asked Ram Dass what contentment was, he said "plumbing the depth of the moment."

    I love it when things coincide in this way!

    Love the mystery of this artwork!

    So powerful christine!! Would you give me permission to put that up as my status message on fb and link it to your poem here? Your painting speaks such volumes christine. Really something, the power of silence. Isnt it?

  5. Was just thinking about this the other night...how to describe the falling into a greater depth. I know it when I feel it...yet how to describe the feeling just prior to falling 'into' it? Combination of excitement, allowing, BEing and plumbing. Sort of does itSelf. Thank you for this beautiful post Dear Christine. (♥)
