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...

Wilderness Wanderers...


The following poem was created from an email dialogue I had with
  Chuck Surface last month.
Most of the words are his, some are mine, and some a synthesis of
 the essence of the dialogue. I was so inspired by his message
 that I couldn’t help putting the words together in poem form.
  I merely played with the words as they sang to my Heart…

 He has kindly given his permission for me to post it here…




Wilderness Wanderers

We, of the Wanderers Tribe,
wander The Vastness
of
The Unknown…

instinctually
 seeking the warmth
and shelter of a council fire.

Wandering from encampment
to encampment
we recognize the gifts of each;
we learn and are blessed,
but find ourselves
riding on once again
into


The
 Wilderness…


As is our human nature,
we seek again and again
for the comfort and shelter
of an encampment
with which our Heart resonates
 and our Being finds affinity.

But time and again
the constraints of
the “known” and “accepted”
descriptions of
”reality’ and “truth”
are more than we can bear,
and The Vastness
calls to us…

Wilderness Wanderers
will never be at

Peace or Illumined
within the constraints of
 any council fire

Vagabonds of the Heart,
we are not aimless,
but seek only the Heart’s Truth,
beyond  tradition,
beyond definition

We know that however much our
human nature craves
comfort
warmth
nourishment
and
fellowship,
these
will not be satisfied
in the encampments…

For we are Wilderness Wanderers
wandering the
Immeasurable
V a s t n e s s
of
The Great Mystery


And
 if we are Graced,
we find there
ones such as ourselves…

Wandering…

Together,
yet in solitude,
we band of Vagrants
sit…

…within and as the Great Mystery…

Unsheltered by
concepts
theories
and
conjecture


Nomads by Nature
We are blessed to be
simple
Wanderers



Mystic Meandering

With Gratitude to Chuck…

I am going to be wandering in the Inner Wilderness
 for a while,
taking a break from blogging,
refocusing inward again toward the Silence and Love
 of the Great Mystery, the Inner Cosmos; playing
 in the delight and Joy of just Being – Just living
Dancing with the Universe -
intuitively moving *with* Life…

Maybe I will find you wandering there too
in the Inner Wilderness…

Namaste
