the Heart

the Sufi’s see the heart between the body and the soul

the intermediary

the mediator between the world of form and the spirit

the heart when touched with grace dissolves the deluded self with love

the Buddhists mention the 5 skandas

and in the fifth is that which leads us to our true nature

it exerts will, determination, diligence, and confidence

to empty the mind of the deluded self

the Hindus point to neti neti of the imagined self

to ask who is the real I

the great inquiry to contemplate who am I

and realize simple beingness

the Christian mystics point to the kingdom within

one that is revealed through a great love of the oneness

that surrounds and pervades all

from every corner of this earth

we are all being called towards the centre

back to the unity in which our souls were born

it is the universe that breathes us

it is the universe that beats our heart

our hearts are blessed as parents

to tend our soul, our true nature, our kingdom

fully cleanse the heart with the heart

Let your heart consume nothing but what brings you closer to God

and one day your purified heart will be perfectly reflected in your soul

and at that moment they will become one

they become worthy

a true self born of this earth, reared in hardship, nurtured for an eternal life of unimaginable potential
