Heart Song

 

I have a very musical family. They can pull harmonious melodies out of the air with the same ease as breathing.

“If you hear a voice
inside your heart,
listen . . .
and through that music
you will learn to sing.

When you become
a sheet of music without notes,
your song will sing you.”

-John Squadra, This Ecstasy, Heron Dance Press

 

“Pure music is as big as space. It is God. It is the secret of allowing the sound of the universe to flow through you.”

Amma

Heart Space

 

heart-shaped spider web

 

I’ve never seen a spider web
with a heart space in the middle
of what a soul might desire

freedom
stillness
emptiness yet fullness
empty of preconceptions
emptiness
empty of what (a separate existence)
clear of clutter
room for Divine
space to breathe

Relax

“Sabbath is an incubator for wisdom.  When we allow the rush and pressure of our days to fall away, even for a short period of time, we are more able to discern the essential truth of what lies before us.  Jesus said, “If the eye is simple and clear, the body will be full of light”, and “Those that have ears, let them hear.”  Through meditation, prayer and stillness, we refine our vision, we sharpen our hearing…Sabbath…[is like] a day of closing our eyes to the busyness of our necessary responsibilities, a meditation in the midst of life, a day to listen more carefully to the story beneath the habitual words and actions that flood our days.”

–Wayne Muller, “Sabbath: Finding rest, Renewal, and Delight in our Busy Lives”, p. 166

Cosmic Love Notes

 

“I suspect we are all recipients of cosmic love notes.  Messages, omens, voices, cries, revelations, and appeals are homogenized into each day’s events.  If only we knew how to listen, to read the signs.”

—Sam Kenn, “The Passionate Life”, quoted in “100 Ways to Keep Your Soul Alive”, edited by “Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat”
