YOUR HEART IS A BRIDGE

Your heart is the bridge
Between your humanity
And your divinity

When there is harmony
It means there is a free flow
Of humanity into divinity
And divinity into humanity
And there is no division within
Only wholeness
A whole human being

If this flow is impeded
There is imbalance
And something is denied
Either an armoring of the heart
Or a denial of the mind

A lopsided human experience
Misses the mark
And creates suffering
Both personal
And collective

Embracing all your humanity
With its pain and sorrows
Without getting completely lost
Allows the bridge to open

Your heart is an extraordinary thing
A doorway that, once open,
Allows the full coming and going
Of the profound and the profane.

COMPASSIONATE HEART

This compassionate heart
That grew inside me
Was born from pain
And desperate attempts
To keep away from old wounds
Lost in addictions and avoidance
Strategies that failed
And only brought me greater suffering
And suffering to those around me


When I gave up fighting
My world caved in
And the resistor was destroyed,
Broken up and dissolved
What remained, and it took many years
And many tears
Was this compassionate heart


I saw myself in everyone
I saw everyone’s pain and sorrow
I saw the patterns we weave
And the strategies we employ
I realized that only kindness really works
And only a compassionate embrace
Of all human troubles
Releases us to be who we are.

WHEN THE RAIN FALLS

The rain soaks the parched earth

We stand in the wetness of it all

Our eyes turned towards the heavens

Is it joy that is falling

Or a kind of grief

Stop dividing everything up

For everything is inside everything else

There is awe and mystery everywhere

When the heart opens.

THE GARDEN IS BEAUTIFUL

We are dancing in an endless ocean of love
Swimming with the beautiful ones
Unlocking the door to eternity
Feeling the breath of the ecstatic wind
Catching a glimpse of the sun
As it pours out its light
For the lovers of the world


The Garden is beautiful
Because you are in it

WHEN TRUTH FALLS IN

It’s like a riddle
Made only for you
You have to work it out
No one can do it for you
Others may point
Inform and guide
But only when truth
Falls into you
Into your belly
Into your heart
Into your blood and bones
Will it make any sense

The journey is deep
And the challenges many
Emotions run hot
Beliefs become entrenched
The path of understanding
Draws us inexorably
But only when truth
Falls into you
Into your belly
Into your heart
Into your blood and bones
Will it make any sense

We are perfectly imperfect
Hurt and fragile
Indomitable and courageous
Tossed by the ocean
Thrown upon the shore
Desperate to make comprehend
Yet terrified of our darkness
But only when truth
Falls into you
Into your belly
Into your heart
Into your blood and bones
Will it make any sense.
