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...

Simply - Love...


Come into Peace...

Even in the midst of chaos there is Love...
Even in the midst of complexity there is Love...
Even in the midst of confusion there is Love...

In everything there is Love...

In life and in death
we are held deep within the Great Heart.
All that matters is that we know
we are loved...

It is not the work of love to change people,
or force their growth in our direction.
The work of love depends on giving
others a sense safety, nurturing their
confidence to lean into life
and into the unknown...

  1. Such wise words from Mark Nepo, "The work of love depends on giving others a sense safety". One to digest....x

    1. Indeed. His book has many gems.
      The words in "my" poem came through during meditation one time. It speaks of the Greater Love that is always there for us, whether we *feel* it or not during difficult times. I think Mark's words speak to the love that we offer each other during those times. As he says - "nurturing confidence to lean into life and into the unknown." In either case it seems that "Love" is what gets us through.
