It is No Longer Your Heart, Since It Has Become the Heart of the Beloved~



man with heart

The downpour of divine love that quickens the heart makes it like an ocean, makes it begin to vibrate, begin to live, to gush forth with energy and life, to unleash tidal waves of spiritual emotion, embracing all beings.

Knock against the walls of shell so that the whole power of your heart streams forth flooding the universe.

Find accomodation in all those hearts that you have touched upon, who have become part of your being~ forevermore.

Think of all those whose hearts you have quickened, embrace them with your being.

Experience it as the tidal wave of Divine Love passing through you, embracing all beings.

Glistening, scintillating~ the efflugence behind all creatures, behind all phenomena, the light in the heart of those  you have touched, whose light you enhance by your love.

See if you can get an answer to your heart’s greatest longing by knocking upon the door of your heart, striking upon the gong until the gong opens into wider spaces.

Life strikes upon your heart with the wonder of  true love and compassion.

Life is knocking at the door, so that you may receive the answer.

Blessed is the answer which uproots the question.

Should I do this?  Should I do that?

Are you flooding the world with joy?

Are you creatiing concern and unhappiness?

There is the answer…you can’t find the answer in the mind.

As soon as you knock at the door of the heart, the heart becomes a living receptacle.

Your whole being becomes one immense heart, transfigured by love, quickened by love, vibrating with the force of love.

See how the answers disappear from your mind.

Watch your mind scuttling itself before the immensity of the power  of the heart, so that you have lost all sense of it being your heart.

It is no longer your heart since it has become the heart of the Divine Beloved.


{After copying this off of the old piece of paper from 16 years ago, I’m not sure if I wrote it, yet it is something that resonates so powerfully from within me, it could have emerged from my heart!  The piece ended abrubtly with the following:  Your heart is the key to. I will “google” to see if I find the author?  Perhaps Rumi, Hafiz, one or another of the mystics, or me.}
