One Heart

One Heart

Look at the birds. Even flying
is born

out of nothing. The first sky
is inside you, friend, open

at either end of day.
The work of wings

was always freedom, fastening
one heart to every falling thing.

Songs in the Heart

forest-682003__180

We’ve become so invested in reasoning and analyzing to arrange for life to conform to our desires, that we’ve lost touch with our environment, our bodies and our hearts. To make peace with our lives, we need to honor the earth, the natural messages of the body, and the songs in the heart that connects us all.

Interconnections

“Our present scientific solutions come from the masculine tools of analysis, the very mind set of separation that has caused the problems.  We cannot afford to isolate ourself from the whole any more, and the fact that our problems are global illustrate this.

It means to honor our sacred connection to life that is present in every moment.  It means to realize that life is one whole and begin to recognize the interconnections that form the web of life.”

Deity Meditation

“Deity meditation can unsnarl psychological knots—for instance, issues with power or love —and call forth specific transformative forces within the mind and heart. It puts us in touch with the protective power within us, and can change the way we see the world.

Whether or not we “believe” in goddesses, contemplating them allows us to become intimate with the vast impersonal forces of the universe.”
