The secrets of the spiritual heart

Very few people understand the heart. In truth, your heart is one of the masterpieces of creation. It is a phenomenal instrument. It has the potential to create vibrations and harmonies that are far beyond the beauty of pianos, strings or flutes. You can hear an instrument, but you feel your heart. And if you think that you feel an instrument, it’s only because it touched your heart. Your heart is an instrument made of extremely subtle energy that few people come to appreciate. In most human beings, the heart does its work unattended. Even though its behaviour governs the course of our lives, it is not understood. If at any given point in time the heart happens to open, we fall in love. If at any given point in time it happens to close, the love stops. If the heart happens to hurt, we get angry, and if we stop feeling it altogether, we get empty. All of these different things happen because the heart goes through changes. These energy shifts and variations that take place in the heart run your life. You are so identified with them that you use the words “I” and “me” when you refer to what’s going on in your heart. But in truth, you are not your heart. You are the experiencer of you heart. Extract – Michael A Singer Image – Janet O’Halloran

Guidance in Your World 2017

When I am unsure of what I must do, send my teachers and mentors to place the lessons before me so that I can learn, understand and grow in this world.  Encourage me to stay in the moment and reflect on what I must do next.  Guide me in goodness only and circle my life in the light of the heavenly stars.  Guide me so that I take from this earth only what I need.  While I am here,  my purpose is to do good and deliver to this world something special.  Let me not forget my curiosity and laughter as a child. Guide me with kindness and to always have my heart open.  Let me not worry about my next life for it is the lessons of this life I must learn.  Before I go let me teach others the knowledge that I gain so that they can understand and receive guidance to the next.  If I fail, let me learn under your guidance to keep trying until I succeed.   Photo source thanks to Pixabay

The Beauty of the Heart

The beauty of the heart is the lasting beauty: its lips give to drink of the water of life. Truly it is the water, that which pours, and the one who drinks. All three become one when  your talisman is shattered. That oneness you can’t know by reasoning. by Rumi

East

EAST Frosty morning looking east In all its glorious light Blazing sun and silhouetted treetops O what a beautiful sight O many a time I’ve harshly spoken And fearful of the beast The danger chill and deathly will Of the sharp and cutting wind from east. Today it dawns on me your place Surely starting each day east Proclaiming wisdom to the rest Announcing without fails life’s daily feast. I sense the newness of each day Re-birthing, the restful night brings Today is a good day A good day to do great things Written in the early days of this New Year and finished on the 10th June in the shadow of Ben Bulben, County Sligo and in Dunderry Park, County Meath, Ireland on 19th June 2011.

Answer Inside

Answer Inside When we are at a distance it is often thought but not said If my arms are too far away to hold you then what shall I do? If my thoughts are of you yet you cannot feel them what shall I do? If we are present but far from each other what shall I do? If I am sorry but frighten to say sorry what shall I do? If I am feeling needy and cannot explain it to you what shall I do? If I am jealous what shall I do? If I feel unloved and wanting what shall I do? If I love you so much but cannot tell you what shall I do? The answer is always inside so I must look to find it that’s what I shall to do I will open my heart more for you for it is what I shall do Author – Mel Clifford
