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...

Cups In The Ocean - Rumi and Mayer

“These forms we seem to be
are cups floating in an ocean
of living consciousness.

They fill and sink without leaving
an arc of bubbles,
or any good-bye spray.

What we are is that ocean,
too near to see,
though we swim in it
and drink it in…"

”Pour your cup into your
deep ocean-self -
[become aware]
of the vast awareness
and the surge
that carries you along.”


I have blended excerpts from two poems
Cup and Ocean, and Cup

In the following video Peter Mayer sings of the vastness of the Soul.
For those who don’t believe in the concept of a “soul”
you can substitute words like Spirit, or True Nature, or Being
and just enjoy this musical wave on the Ocean.

If the video doesn’t play please leave me a comment to let me know.
Thank you…


  1. What a peaceful, beautiful way to begin my day (though my cup has coffee in it) ;-) Thank you for posting these words, this music.

    1. My pleasure :) Glad you enjoyed it with your morning cup...

  2. thank you for your thoughts, the poem, the song. I am listening at the END of my day, so...nice way to head off to bed, eh? Blessings.
