A Letter to My Heart

By |December 8th, 2014|

My precious heart.

Your nature is love – pure, devotional, unlimited, unbounded and free.

Yet I have tried to limit you. Please forgive me.

I have tried to limit you because I thought that it was not safe to express your fullness, depth and wildness in the world.

I have tried to limit you because I thought that if others saw how deeply you love, how unconditionally you surrender, how completely without reason you abandon yourself to the guidance of the Great Mystery…. Well, I was afraid that they would fear you. They might fear your unstoppable power and unknowable depths. And in their fear they would judge you. Judge me. I was afraid I would be ostracized… and deemed not worthy of my place as mother, lover, friend, teacher….

In my fear I forgot that the source of Love and Fear is the One source. And it holds me in the deepest safety and sees beyond all judgment.

Oh, my precious heart. I was afraid that if I let the fullness of your light, love and magnificent intelligence shine in the world, that you would surely guide me to unspeakable joy and great worldly success. And I was afraid that this success would make others feel insecure and would cause them deep suffering.

In my fear I forgot that in your light is inspiration, and in your love is compassion – a bridge of safety for those who feel insecure.

Please forgive me, my heart, for all the burdens I have unconsciously placed around your neck.

I release them all.

You are free to be and express your unlimited nature.

Your love and your light is needed in the world now.

I need it.

I am blessed by it.

Thank you.

I love you.

Far From Knowing…

Far from knowing who I am

I discover myself daily.

 

All over this body I find

old rocks and ancient wells.

 

Scars and burns mark

twists and turns

 

along the way

to where dark chasms and deep oceans

open

 

and to the secret treasure chests

I left for myself

all hidden away

so I would find them one day

 

and remember This…

Great Jewel of my Being.
