Heart Opportunity Knocking — At Your Door!
The World is my teacher
filtered through eyes memories and emotions
attitudes moods and beliefs
conscious and unconscious
rigidities and flexibilities
of body and heart and spirit and vision… and
How large a being can I allow
this little Self to grow into?
The broken-open Heart
it is rumored
A better mentor cannot be found; and it is true, the accessed intelligence of the heart integrates mind’s powers and knows the path through these times we are in, personally and collectively.
Where do we think
The invitation is in the listening
tracking breath’s incoming roots
to the heart’s longings
for the coherency of a Self
arriving as we open
the heart portal
to gratitude or appreciation or love…
all or any capable of expanding our experience of self
out of an identity too small
and the ordinariness
and the visions
of our heart’s
blueprint for fulfillment
we are after all
our very own teachers and pharmacists
awaiting but the revealing
of own heart’s door
The time, by the way,
last I checked,
Same as yesterday and tomorrow.
So why not open Now
this most vulnerable
most intimate of doors.
