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...

Divinely Human...

My mind wants to tell me that ‘just sitting’
- sitting meditation in Silence – is not enough.
But my Heart/Spirit knows that
’just sitting”-
in Silent Awareness
is exquisitely enough…

It is
communion
with the
Infinite
Beingness
of all
life

It is the “medicine”
for every ailment…

It is the Light that brings awareness
to all hidden places…

It is the Spaciousness
from which all knowing
and all needed action
arises
with
clarity

Heart says:
Spend as much time as possible
’just sitting’
in the depths
 of Silence
communing
with the
 inner movement
of
    Eternal Being…

experiencing intimately
 the embrace
and intelligence
of what lives us;
not resigned to
”just being human…”
not settling…

But being aware
of our Humanness and Infiniteness
as One Rhythm,
playing together…
The Infinite manifest as finite,
the formless in form:
The Truth of Existence…

Humanness infused with
such Suchness
that we are enlivened with
a Life
much vaster
than
”just”
our humanness…

Can we truly embrace
that
enlivened
Life
as
who
we
are

The
Pure
Conscious
Awareness
that
breathes
us
into

Can we allow ourselves to remember
what we *really* are,
beyond
disturbances of the mind,
our insecurities,
our thoughts,
our feelings,
our beliefs,
our
self-image,
our self-identities
our roles and labels…

Can we allow ourselves
to see/sense/know
The Infinite Presence
that
we
are
behind these eyes,
behind this persona,
animating this body:

The Heart of Being
that
we have longed
to know
all our lives

Don’t settle…

Can we quit pretending
that “we’re only human”
that we can’t know…
Can we
take off the shadowy masks
that blind us,
and
SEE

the
Infinite Conscious Awareness
that we are…

That we are Divinely Human…

You don’t have to wait lifetimes…
It’s right here, right now -
everywhere…

Just be still
’just sit’
in
Silence
and
listen

Open the eyes of the Heart
and
SEE

Our “Divine Essence”
 has always been here

Feel IT
Experience IT

Don’t settle…

  1. VERY well expressed! "just sitting”-in Silent Awareness is exquisitely enough…" Yes... just some silence, and I often feel so much better. I might cry while I'm "on the cushion," but I'm better for having had the silence to sift through things and connect with the Divine. LOVELY art work--I like the colors and lotus symbol with the yin-yang, delicately beautiful Christine. ((HEART-HUGS))

    1. Thank you Tracy... Yes, connecting with that sense of "inner Divine" - also what I call "The Silence"; sitting in silence to *meet* "The Silence" - to commune with "The Divine." It's all the same thing really... And yes - feelings and emotions will definitely arise within the context of "sitting meditation", but as you know, it's all okay :) Love, C

    1. Thank you Suki :) Yes, really I'm talking about "sitting meditation" - or it could be Yoga - anything that takes us into that inner space of Silent Awareness, and allows us to see/experience that we *are* this Divine Spacious Silence from which everything arises... :)
