LOTUS OF THE HEART
Living in LOVE beyond Beliefs
EVERYONE IS WELCOME HERE
Prayer arises from Silence. Before there is a prayer, there is Prayer. Silence prays. Pure Prayer is prayer directly from the Heart, pure of thought and action, before mind. When praying from the Heart, one cannot rightly say, "Prayer arose from my heart," for in Pure Prayer the heart is the Heart of everyone, everything, all Creation. In this, rather than saying, "I pray," better, "Prayer prays within and through me." Yet, this Prayer is never located in the self, the self is located within this Prayer.
is the overflow
of the Prayerful Heart
~ not a Prayerful Heart...
there is One ~
remains hidden in Silence
never reaching mind
or its understanding
never passing from tongue
into expression ~
like a musical opus
with no instruments
~ Something took my hand
and led me into the Night
I heard the most enchanting barking
but there was no dog anywhere...
my heart leaped and danced for Joy everywhere ~
music, like Prayer, and that barking, just is ~
there is Love music and Love barking, the same
never comes from anywhere
never goes anywhere
~ there are birds
that fly in a cloudless Sky ~
we could say
"This is not Prayer"
for how could this be called anything?
for anything spoken pretends to arise from understanding
yet, this, like "God," is beyond understanding
for this, like "God," is prior to understanding
so, this is beyond, for prior to, misunderstanding
nothing and not nothing
Could we just end this intoxicated, senseless talk by saying
"This is Grace...
This is Love reaching into Love
to fulfill Its desire to experience Intimacy with Itself"?
~ All the mystics know
have always known
God wants to make Love with God,
otherwise, why would God assume a body? ~
do not think it is Love
as you have ever understood
or could ever understand Love
drink beyond understanding
until you become the intoxication
imbibe past all religion, everything,
you may possibly see into what I have been hinting at
If you do not know
about that barking in the Night without a dog,
you have not imbibed enough of Life
flowing from pure Spaciousness Itself
I stepped into a Well
and became the Water
I was baptized in... like birds in that Sky
