WITH AN OPEN MIND, YOU WILL BE OPEN HEARTED.
~ The Tao Te Ching #16
I believe in all that has never yet been spoken.
I want to free what waits within me
so that what no one has dared to wish for
may for once spring clear
without my contriving….
…then in these swelling & ebbing currents,
these deepening tides moving out, returning,
I will sing you as no one ever has,
streaming through widening channels
into the open sea.
~ from Rilke’s Book of Hours(poems to God)~
There is a community of spirit.
…Open your hands
If you want to be held.
Sit down in this circle.
….meditate now on steadfastness and clarity
and let those be the wings that lift and soar…
Reminder for my life: Open-heart ~ A song ~ Begin again ~ Resilient. Be an instrument of peace. Help someone’s soul heal(Rumi) ~ Let it be ~ yet, Onward ~ Ever seeking, ever loving, hopeful, patient, present. Give gratitude for open-hearted living. Reflect; then claim the intensity & integrity of life ~ in all its grief and wonder. Oh, there is such richness to be had, if only it might lie within our grasp. Beyond our reach, thankfully, there may be an abundance of mystery & grace.
