Understand Myself as a Key to Awakening

Dear Friends,
Some of you may remember this post from the beginning of the year, however many new readers have joined Heartflow since then. One dear friend, Eleanor, mentioned how much she appreciates this post and that moved me to re-read it myself and to post it today again.


When I can understand myself I have the key that will help me to understand the world. To understand myself I enter into an exploration of what it is that I understand unconditionally and unequivocally. I also want to be clear about what I mean when I say that I understand.

Letting Go…

Author Unknown – Original post here.

Letting Go…

She let go of the fear.
She let go of the judgments.
She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.
She let go of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons.

Open Your Heart to the World

Open your heart to the world

Vulnerable I am

Can I be hurt?

When hurt is our daily bread

There is only one move to make – open more

How can I find out if my life will be equal to this hurt?

Going for shelter in this storm will kill me

How Blessed Am I

interdimensional craft

How blessed am I

 How blessed am I to live in this ‘stunningly serene’ world

In which I navigate through the space between events, thoughts and words.

My interdimensional Craft takes me through expanses of pristine creation.

I am free of the pull of gravity as I slip between the minutes and seconds.

These rifts in the immensity of sunyata are like flotsam in the stream;

My living craft takes me through such occasional patches of dissonance smoothly,

At times even unnoticeably.

How did I find this Craft? Oh, It found me. One day, at dawn, there I was within It.

The day opened up showing me so many images suggesting solid objects.

However this time it was clear, from the command deck of my Craft  – these are but chimera;

No need to engage with them in a seemingly earnest battle for precious treasures.

Yes, I am one of the images in the thick of the fray

And I seem to be slashing and parrying with the best.

Yet all the while I sit in my commander’s seat,

Partaking of the exhilarating turbulence as in a swoon.

My Craft is my dear and most loyal companion,

Always ready to take me on through further dimensions as I desire.

When I am full of these most enthralling episodes,

My Craft returns me to my primordial domicile

To rest in that eternal self-settled place.


After writing the above I noticed in my Inbox today’s ACIM (A Course In Miracles) lesson. I have been reviewing the lessons one a day for the last few weeks. It is a lovely lesson and I chuckled at the title that came up for the short piece above, almost verbatim today’s lesson:

“ACIM Lesson 40

I am blessed as a Son of God.

Today’s exercises take little time and no effort. Repeat the idea for today, and then add several of the attributes you associate with being a Son of God, applying them to yourself. One practice period might, for example, consist of the following:

I am blessed as a Son of God
I am happy, peaceful, loving and contented.

Another might take this form:

I am blessed as a Son of God
I am calm, quiet, assured and confident.

If only a brief period is available, merely telling yourself that you are blessed as a Son of God will do.”

How To Live Like A Dog – B4Peace

Dog and Child


This story Melt My heart I wanna Share it ! Must read .

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

i am learning how to be a flower


An amazing poem about the agenda of light for Humanity in this time ~

“There are so many songs waiting in the garden of your belly for permission to grow…”

“There is a universe in my body…”

“but i am learning how to be a flower…”

An original poem written & performed by Dominque Ashaheed :: poet, teacher, mama, international women’s slam poetry champion 2012, national slam poetry champion 2012

How this poem came to be, in the words of Katie Hess:

reposted from:


“I first saw Dominique perform at the Lohas Conference in 2012. Seeing her in person you get a full-on dose of her power. She has an other-worldly gift: when she speaks, the sound of her voice reaches down and grabs something so deep in your heart, you come undone.

Desiderata – Words for Life by Max Ehrmann

Max Ehrmann

Max Ehrmann (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Living Love: Day 21 – Heart Wisdom

Living Love

Our mind is subservient to our heart. The New Age is a time of opening up to the Yin energy in existence. Many are calling this the Divine Feminine. The age we are leaving, the Kali Yuga, was an age of the dominance of the Yang energy. Existence seeks balance and since the Yang was overextended it is now time to re-balance by emphasizing the Yin. As the Yang became more and more unbalanced it expressed itself in mind-dominated behavior, which we recognize as the culture of the patriarchy that put the end over the means.
