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...

Remembering...

“The greatest illness is forgetting what we are.
Life is about remembering who we are
through the space of our innermost Being.
Turn toward the essential stillness within…”

Michael Harrington
From Illness to Stillness
(read an excerpt here)




“At the edge of restful darkness
the sacred life force calls to us,
asking us to remember…

We feel the longing to go home
to what we are…

It is the impulse of the life force
within us…

Surrender…

You will see this inner essence,
this innocence,
like a bright thread woven throughout
the center of your life…

Living it consciously is why we are here…

Oriah Mountain Dreamer





“Experience directly the invisible,
ever-present current of Being
that underlies and gives rise
to the world.”




“We must let ourselves be led
by the inner thread of Silence
and intuitive Awareness,
beyond where all paths end,
to that place of sacredness
where we go innocently -
not once but continually…”

and discover

“There is only Being ItSelf
through you,
as you,
and as all that exists…

echoing through eternity…”






“A mystic is content with nothing less
than to touch the Truth [of who we are] in its most
universal purity.”

Ivan Granger
Poetry Chaikhana

~*~

May we all “touch the Truth”
and remember…

Blessings of Love and Light
in the eternal Now…

  3. “A mystic is content with nothing less than to touch the Truth [of who we are] in its most universal purity.” What I love about this quote is that it gives one permission to feel a bit of discontent. For a very good reason, of course ;)
    Happy New Year. Just returned from ushering in 2013 with kirtan!

    1. Yes, the Truth of who we are, our Essence, the Beingness that we are, the pure Awareness, embraces it all, even the discontent that we feel... And in remembering the pure Essence that we are sometimes that discontent dissolves because we are seeing who is really experiencing all this, we experience the Truth that ultimately all is infinitely well... Am sure Kirtan gets one in touch with this Essence within. Although I've never tried Kirtan, I've done some chanting which was extremely powerful.
