A lullaby of growth

September 18, 2013

lightning-double-rainbow-550

Rumbling sounds of talking thunder
in the distance
awakening the day
approaching
in the gentle raindrops
moist fingertips touching thirsty lips
dripping and skipping on the roof
sliding light upon my windows
green roots reaching for the streaming water
sinking slowly beneath the surface
of the earth….
a lullaby of growth
a symphony of beauty
swelling with the morning light
making rainbows in the rain
coaxing the plain
to burst into bloom

spreading the petals of my heart
to sip the beauty
from the One
turning the water to wine

The creative power of pure love

September 18, 2013

The creative power that rises in the night
in the wake of the moon
or in the moments just before
the light of the sun creates the dawn
is a wordless flow that melts and dissolves
the disguises we wear
the pointless chatter of the rational mind

It comes in an emptiness that feels a transparent uncoiling
energy spiraling toward expression
moving like a misty fog or curling colorless smoke
a cloud of spirit invisible to the eye
that silences the personality attached to the name
of the moment in time

It presses against the heart and penetrates the soul
steals the eyes and lips and hands
to guide a dance of elegance
a swirling galaxy of twirling spin
drawing us in
to the silken womb of the universe

Creation conceives itself and gives birth
to something so new
words cannot touch or describe
what comes rushing into existence
mingling with magnificence
a radiance of breathtaking innocence

Listen to the whispering deep within you

September 18, 2013

In the silence of my vigil……
listening in the night and in the breaking of the dawn…
I hear so many voices……
so many wandering souls seeking love and peace of mind ….
hearing their tears and their pleading…
their anger and frustration with broken promises …..
with illness ….loss ……….disasters…..
and those wondering who to trust and who to believe…

there is a quiet voice in your heart……
flowing to guide you in a way right for your own heart and soul…
The creator knows you in a way no one else can ever truly know you…..
and is whispering to you…..
to open your heart to the Spirit of Love
that calls you on a path that will guide you to the peace you seek.

Your mind wanders and flits from place to place…..
thought to thought…….
belief to belief……….
noisy and demanding ………
commanding your attention in a thousand ways….
The soul is silent and the heart is awake…..
whispering and guiding you toward the kingdom of your heart
and the sweet home of your deeper dreams….

There are so many paths……
so many ways to reach through time and place to the beauty of flow…
in the river…..in the dance……….the journey………..the flight…
in music…..and song…….in family…..through children…….
through beauty……….
in nature ……….gardening ……..prayer..
the arts……..the song in your heart……
listen to the deep sighs and longings
that guide you to the light of your own true beauty…..
concealed deep in your own nature….

Neeraj Pandey: How awesome and true…the productiveness of our activity depends entirely on what we put into it and in order to put our best into each thought and action.and i think its needed to order our mind ,to gather up all its scattered forces…to establish our equilibrium and we cant do this unless we withdraw at intervals from the haste and noise of outer occupations…and what you beautifully expressed it can be experienced only when the whole being has been unified and is flowing through one channel in prefect rhythm.unseen yet so deeply felt by our own prefect stillness and silence and presence of the Now..and all kinds spiritual vision and deeper understanding are unfolded in the hours of silent reflection…and it is in the moment of silence that we hear the voice of the infinite.
Art, music and many mediums my friend….and as soon as being has found access to God…..he or she becomes deep and silent.
And i hope we shall, and i am speaking here within my own feelings, we all shall realize out our own selfish ends, but to fulfill the will of God….then all the baser instincts of our nature will be destroyed and the light within will shine in its full glory.
Thank you Naomi for your beautiful being and wisdom awesome expression so deeply touched.you are very unique.
‘ O thou who art the soul of our souls,the light of all lights, the ever living and unchanging one.
Our worlds of supplication,our prayers and thoughts go to thee.
Manifest Thy immeasurable Glory to us.
In all humility and surrender we offer unto thee our devotion.
Kindle within us a greater yearning to dedicate ourselves to the highest.
And pray thee to give us ever greater strength and wisdom.
Fill our hearts with compassion and the spirit of peace.
May peace ,love and light abide in us all love.for by the bonds of love are we united with all thy children
and with Thee who art the storehouse of infinite love…..
Gleeeeee…… quite a long note but i couldn’t stop myself after reading your beautiful expression!

Ingrid Henzler yes beloved Naomi… yes…. countless are the ways to walk… the choices we can make…. and yet our heart tells us where to go …..if we listen into the silence of the night… the light of early dawn… and we jubilate and sing…. and cannot but praise God’s mystery……. of love of sweetest joy once more to be….. united with Divinity………

The mystifying beauty of wilderness

September 13, 2013

Wilderness exists not only in landscape

but swirling deep in the unknowns

within ourselves

wandering to the edge of time and place

we encounter grace 

that sweeps us beyond our knowing

and hurls us into feelings

that send us soaring to the moon and back

to bask in the rays of the sun

discover the silvery threads that invite us

to swing from star to star 

to touch the earth with the soles of our feet

feel the grass between our toes

to shed our clothes

to swim in the glory of a peaceful soul

delight in an open heart

to feel the sweet comfort of sheltering arms

and taste a kiss

from a thousand miles away

to play and sway in the gentle winds 

of the breath of God

to be

in the wilderness of love

that sets us free…..

divine light of spirit surrounding the heart

September 4, 2013

00 Flow  Rassouli 02-27-PillarsofLife

divine light of spirit surrounding the heart

Beneath the sacred cover
of the night
of hidden kingdoms
in the patterns of moonlight playing
like errant sparks
igniting
tiny orbs of light
stars and blinking fireflies
dancing flames
creating
the sudden flare
of souls
feeling the warm breath
of a whispering dance of intimacy
empowered by
a throbbing in the heart
touching…caressing….spilling secrets
in the trembling silence
of the pure embrace of dawn
the sweet scent of skin….mellow and warm
in the folds
and tender feeling of rumpled sheets
concealing a crowning
silky halo of flowing curls
nesting and resting
upon a sacred chest
of treasures
hiding a divine altar
pulsing with
tremulous rhythm
yielding in a quivering
surrender to a dewy dream
awakening the streaming misty vision
of flashing shadows and the first fingers of sunlight
swirling and rippling in the reflections
of the crimson wine of love
lips curving in silent smiles and sweet laughter
muffled in the melting alchemy
of souls
a transparency of communion
beneath the soft veil of eyelashes
blinking revelations
revealing a gaze that penetrates
through the hazy cloud of sweet sleepiness
awakening spirit
moving and guiding the senses
unseen and free to explore the secrets of pure love
that gives and gives and gives
deep within the sheltering satin of dawn
spilling the precious secrets
within the embrace of spiraling arms
of surrendering and dissolving
in the rising and falling glow
of cresting waves
of beauty
of the beloved
