Boundless openness

Boundless openness
willing to receive all
the world has to offer
without judgement.

Broken open
to let love pour forth
closely followed by
hand in hand with trust.
A plethora of riches
a river of qualities
aching to be known

Who would stop this flood?
Who can build a dam
high enough to contain it?

I am broken open
empty and filled
filled and empty
willing to receive all
the world has to offer.

What are you listening to?

What is the soundtrack
to your life?
Is it joyful, peaceful or
discordant and edgy?

Is there a narrator
proclaiming your positive deeds
and achievements
or demeaning your efforts and
condemning your every move?

What is the soundtrack
to your life?
How do you meet each happening
each circumstance?
With an open, embracing heart
or a heavy, closed mind?

If you find the soundtrack
disagreeable, too emotional
or not in accord with
your aspirations

change it!

Find a new tune
to dance to
to get you through the day.
Find a new record
that attunes more closely
with how you want to be.

Find it in your heart
listen carefully.
Memorise each phrase
each notation
each rise and fall.

And sing it wholeheartedly
let it fill your being
with love and joy and life.

Let the soundtrack to your life
be that which quickens
your heartbeat
and makes life glorious.

You touched my heart

You touched my heart
causing it to burst forth
like a voluminous flower
spilling its seeds
letting its love freely flow.

Take a piece of my love
care for it well
hold it
polish it
look at it often.
Keep it safe for me
until we meet again.

You broke open my heart.
I willingly give all
that pours forth
it does not belong to me
it belongs to the receiver.

It happened when we met
truly met
in silence and space
where words were not necessary
a smile said it all
and we are all the richer
for this meeting.

You have opened my heart
as I knew you would.
We share a common understanding
that love is the vital ingredient
for the world to keep turning.
Love is all that is needed.

Be still o mind and let silence speak

Be still o mind and let silence speak.
And what will silence say?
I am here always
never absent, never distant
closer than your heartbeat
holding and supporting all.

I am infinite love
at the centre of
every cell, every atom in the universe.

I am all knowledge
I am complete peace and utter rest.

I am before all, behind all
within all.

I am where truth dwells
the space from which all movements emerge.

I am endless, infinite, beginningless.
I am complete, I am now.

I am the backdrop
to all the comings and goings of the world.
I am the utter rest of deep sleep.

I am here always.
I am complete
I am now.
