The Magic of Your Heart.

The above painting is the symbol of Sufism as Hazrat taught it is a "heart with wings." It is considered by many Sufis that the heart holds the key to consciously living life in the presence of God.

No longer!

No Longer

No longer do I mourn in the mirror at the reflection of my waning youth
But gaze within the depths of my eyes in raptures at my pending eternal joy
No longer shall I be saddened and weighed down by the desires I do not hold within my grasp
But rejoice in the richness of the fruits of life that are laid before me to feast and fulfil my appetite
No longer will I thirst for the material possessions of life that are temporal and inanimate
But be quenched by Love pouring abundantly from within my heart that has be filled with aliveness
No longer will tender sentiments and nostalgia rule my life, shackling and seizing my illusions like grieving trophies.
But let me relish in my arousal of wonder at every aborning moment that is bestowed upon me and be grateful that I have a choice
No longer will my stumbling in the alleys of despair and becoming downhearted over take me
But I shall be triumphant that it has strengthened my very spirit and made me aware
No longer will the shroud of darkness obscure my view of the Beauty that resides within my ageing body
But I shall increase my vision and express the Beauty upon all I meet.
No longer will walls and frivolities of the mundane world steal my energy and entomb me
But let every stone wall I have built be clawed down till my fingers bleed and I rejoice in the pain of my long last awaited freedom
No longer will false idols of society impress me with their sad and tasteless life
But the visions of Nature …the air that I breathe … the whisper from a passing breeze … the sun as it kisses the earth … and the taste of wine and passion shall be my intoxications of love

Life is simplicity … be still and silent and listen

the above poem is a very old one of mine ... it may of appeared on earlier post.

Quotes on Simplicity

John V. Cheney
The happiest heart that ever beat Was in some quiet breast That found the common daylight sweet, And left to Heaven the rest

Hans Hofmann
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.

John Morley, 19th-century British statesman
Simplicity of character is no hindrance to the subtlety of intellect.

E. F. Schumacker
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius—and a lot of courage—to move in the opposite direction.

Albert Einstein
Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind.

A wonderful photographer.

There is a kind of stillness that surrounds our silence
A mute secrecy
Soundless, boundless tranquility
Expanding blushings of ecstasy
That reach so far within the abyss of our heart
It is in this moment,
The Divine touches the soul and fills it with grace
Like the bursting of the sun at dawn
As it opens and greets the world.
It is in this stillness and silence
Being is born

Quotes on Being:

Edith Wharton
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

Doris Mortman
Until you make peace with who you are, you'll never be content with what you have.

Coco Chanel
How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.

William James
Each of us literally chooses, by his way of attending to things, what sort of universe he shall appear to himself to inhabit.

Addison Walker
It's not true that nice guys finish last.
Nice guys are winners before the game even starts.

Always my Love

flowers sway to and fro
the flickering of the mind
cradles past and present

Among the mist of daylight dawning,
The sun rises to embrace and kiss the earth
As the trees and birds awake from their dream
Your image impressed on my stirring mind

I cannot hide this love I have for you
Whispering I eternity waits for your return
Hours pass in the warmth of the afternoon sun
As lazy spring flowers tease and kiss
Intoxicated by the gentle breeze

I let my thoughts travel across the seas
Sailing upon the crowning crest of a wave
The ebb of life will not steal you from me
As I gently and safely hold you in my arms
Listen my darling to my heart beats

It speaks volumes of love for thee.

Dedicated to the one I love, always my darling!
