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...

The Silent Flame...


Empty out everything except Silence,
the
still
hush
of

the
deep
Stillness
of the Heart…


Lay it all down – just breath the Silence,
the Stillness of Being.

It doesn’t matter what you’ve been taught,
what words you have heard,
what beliefs you have believed…

Lay it all down – just listen to the Silence,
the deep Rhythm of the Heart.

Unconcern yourself with words,
beliefs - concepts of the dreaming mind.
Fill yourself with the Rhythm of the Stillness…

Lay it all down – just *live* from the Silence;
the still space within the Heart.

Live from the Silent Flame
that burns in your Heart;
brighter than any words,
any teachings, any beliefs,
revealing everything.



Live
in
the
Still
Point
of

The Silence of which I speak is a
meditative Silence, a sacred Silence
in which we are aware of what is Aware
within us; where we are in communion with
that Eternal Being – that which is
our Essence…

  1. Yes, this is what sacred stillness feels like... You've expressed it so well, Christine. I loved this, "Lay it all down – just breath the Silence, thee Stillness of Being." Ah, yes... lay it down, and be still. :o) Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

    1. YES! :) Glad you feel it too! It's a wonderful Rhythm. There's such a fullness to it... This space is not "empty", not a void, but absolutely full, alive... Thank you Monica :)

  3. Your poem and photo reminded me that last night I used a different style of candle when meditating and it was the first time I really sat and concentrated on the flame itself - amazing! But as you so eloquently write, the flame of the heart goes beyond even that - "brighter than any words,
    any teachings, any beliefs,
    revealing everything."

    1. Yes... "the flame" of Being is wonderfully beyond all that we know. You made me laugh with your "ps" :) I always wondered about that "following" thing myself. Glad you are now "official" :)
