Every Heartbeat

Peaceful Day

A peaceful day in the park
After a time away
I'd missed it
So beautiful
The trees
The flowers
The squirrels
The open space and air
Freedom to BE
One with ALL THAT IS


A Peaceful Day in Thompson Park, East Liverpool, Ohio

The Best Medicine

I find that acceptance of who and how I am -right here and now- to be the best medicine.

Timeless Awareness

every taste
every sensation
every possible pleasure
is already present
in the timeless
awareness
that is beating my heart
what use
in chasing dreams
that have already
come true

Allowing

Felt "at a loss" today. . . apathetic to doing anything. Decided to let myself feel how I felt and just be with it - not to try to change it, ignore it, judge it or suppress it.

It was a great relief... just the break I needed. I was actually being allowing and kind to myself!

Song Unsung

“I have spent my days stringing and unstringing my instrument while the song I came to sing remains unsung.”

Always Here

Your hand is always in mine
your whispered endearments are my constant companion
you have never turned your face from me
no matter how many times I have turned from you

now I vow undying love
I meet you in the secret places I used to hide from you in
I hold you with tenderness I used to reserve for my pain
I would give you my life and my breath in an instant

for you are my true love
the one with no form
the one who has never been anywhere, but right here
in the singing of my heart

-Nirmala
