The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart ~Buddha
Do not pretend that The Longing
has not also lived in you,
swinging like a pendulum.
You have been lost
and thieved like a criminal
into the darkness.
But life is tired, Deep Friend,
of going on
It is like the hand of the mother
who has lost the child.
And if you are anything like me, you have been afraid.
And if you are anything like me,
you have known your own courage.
There is room in this boat:
take your seat.
Take up your paddle, and all of us
All of us -
shall row our hearts
‘The Longing’– Em Claire
So much is changing it can be quiet breathtaking. For me the last six months have been profound. The ongoing joy of experiencing the calm and peace of my own heart never diminishes but instead just gets better and better.I am truely grateful for the life I have been blessed with - yes even the extra trip to the bank for another mortgage extension.
I am off to HOBART again in October. I haven't missed a Hobart Retreat in the past five years. Such a wonderful place and such lovely people.
Everyday seems to be bringing more and more wonderful opportunities.
I'd like to share with you one opportunity that is available for you.
Reiki Tummo Level 1 and 2 being held in Auckland on October 16th and 17th.
I have posted information about these events previously so won't repeat myself but just wanted to share that these are the workshops that helped me so tremendously and brought my life to the point where I am at the moment. Standing on the brink of eternal peace and joy.
This very special energy that is available at the present time is helping us all to move in the direction we should be going. If you feel a pull towards working with the Heart then contact us and join in the fun.
‘Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.'Melodie Beattie.
As a nation we have a lot to be grateful for. The earthquake in Christchurch could have been a much worse disaster if the timing had been slightly different. I would like use this forum to say a prayer of gratitude
Thank you True Source. You love us so completely.
Every moment giving us so much ...we just have to realize and let you help us.
Our gratitude and praise to you.
The process of opening and strengthening your heart is joyful, freeing, natural and purely feeling oriented. This is not a serious practice that involves hard work, creative visualizations or any sort of effort whatsoever. If it is being done properly it should feel light, gentle, peaceful, effortless…and fun!
Smile to Your Heart Meditations introduces and explores in depth the four basic, yet key steps in strengthening the heart. And regardless of your level of heart practices, from beginning to advanced, these fundamental steps are always important and can always be improved upon. The four key steps are:
Through a series of simple, relaxing and deepening exercises, this book gently guides you to recognize and experience the truth and natural joy of the spiritual heart for yourself.
The following testimonial is one of many from all over the world featured in the book about the beautiful and life changing experience of opening the heart.
“As a spiritual aspirant for over 30 years, and in my profession as a Ph.D. psychologist, I have experienced and taught numerous practices and approaches for enhancing wellbeing and spiritual growth.
In these, I used to believe I knew about being in my heart and did not realize that I was still primarily head-centered. I spent countless hours doing disciplined meditation practices and could easily experience the calm space between my thoughts. But with all those practices, I never got to experience the depth of my heart. I have come to realize that mindfulness is not the same as heartfulness.
If we reflect back to the most special times in which we felt so deeply touched, grateful, and connected to life—whether it was the birth of a child, a tranquil moment in nature, a peak experience, or time of spiritual communion—it was our heart that was touched. In that moment, we were connected with our heart, and that is why it felt so special and precious.
Over the entire span of a person’s life, when all is said and done, and when one is about to leave this earthly plane, it is these few heartfelt experiences that give them their greatest sense of satisfaction and joy.
My happiness comes from the realization that our heart is not reserved for just a handful of special moments. We are meant to live as a heart, so that every moment can be special and precious, and so life is filled with abundant love and joy. When our hearts are open, we become less and less bothered by idiosyncrasies or differences in people. Relationships begin to bring great joy; we become more accepting of our shortcomings, as well as others’; we easily forgive and share from our heart.
The quality of life improves as people realize that what used to push their buttons, or create emotional reactivity, no longer does so. And if negativity is triggered, it is significantly diminished compared to previous patterns. They feel more sweetness and joy in their relationships, and allow the intelligence of the heart to guide their lives.
Open hearts live authentically with love, humbleness, and gratitude. And the more we are able to open our hearts, the more we are able to experience a tangible connection to the Source of Love and Light.
I am so happy that I know from the core of my heart this is something reachable and achievable for all of us. It is our birthright. I am so grateful that True Source is supporting us to fulfill this ultimate destiny.”
