PATH OF THE HEART by Gwen Potts

Sometimes, it is difficult to listen to our hearts and souls...

 This poem is about the challenge of listening to our hearts and souls for the answers we seek in our lives, and about letting nature guide us with her messages when we have difficulty hearing to what's within us. 


Path of the Heart
by Gwen Potts

There is a path

Through all of this
Bringing choices
Causing us to question
Internally...

Which way to go?

Human minds
So full of thoughts..

Bargaining
Logic and reason..

..For Truth.

Yet
Our hearts
They know!
They really do hear
The truth
Calling us forward
To reveal
Our deepest longings

To be fully..
Alive to it all!

Our hearts will surprise us
As Love Blossoms
Suddenly its there
Nature calls with
The gentlest of whisper
To bring growth ..

Beyond compare.
Then
All of those reasons!
Born within the
Deepest of fear
Eventually they
Stall our process
Just as..
Nature whispers

Let go.
Love will call
Us onward
Appear from no where
Awakening us
From our slumber
Bringing the unexpected
Into the core
Of who we are

To awaken our potential..
Relighting the fire within!

There is a reason
Why all of this
Is here..
A perfect timing
That can only
Be orchestrated
By natures
Divine Call

She will awaken our senses
Teach us to become
Our own best guide

So then..
We travel onward
Upon this path laid bare
Born from natures dancing
Beckoning us forward
This path..
Simply Incomparable...

To all paths before.

This path will guide us
To live from truth
To hear natures rhythms
Hearts beating in tune

Consciousness expanding
You simply feel the truth
The way to walk
Now is simple
As you honour

Your inner truth.
  
There is no other option
But to listen now
Let our souls dance
For one sweet second
Exploring it's completion
Coming full circle
At long last..

It really is time
To change...
All that came before
Time to let go
Of what used
To be true
Igniting commitment
To the path
Laid before
With real honor
A humble gentle, grace

Practice feeling deeply
Into all choices
Presented each day
Nature will support
Our growth on wards
In every single way

Being..

Humble to her truth.

 Just as
Nature will guide us
Bringing worthwhile
Lessons to be learnt
We simply must know
That born from
Within these seeds
Is the path forward

To becoming truly
Who we are

When we finally let go
Allowing nature to guide us
From our core
Listening...
To those messages
On the breeze..
We shall know once more

The truth will become clearer
As we look out
Upon a glassy lake
Calm
Still within
Listen..
Within the reflection..

Truth will appear. 

There are messages
Within ocean tides
In the cycles of the moon
The way that nature
Speaks to us
Will shake us
To the core!

Yet..
She reflects to us
The path forward
With her gentle whisper
She will appear..
Nature will endorse us
Through synchronicities
Gentle heed..

Knowing now
From a place
Deep within
The real, honest, brutality
Of natures last call
It takes great courage
To walk along
The path
Of the warriors truth

Feeling..
Nature support us
With
Her brutal honesty
Knowing now fully

The simple truth...
It is the
Only way to go

As truth
Became our candle
Through each dark day
Calling us onward

To evolve..

Finally letting...

The Soul ....guide the way.

I love to read all sort of spiritual articles, poetry and especially anything written from the heart. Poetry has always been a vehicle of expression for me, so they are always written about things I am currently working through.  If you resonate and would like to follow my Facebook page and my Soul Harmonic blog here, please do! It's most encouraging when people read and comment on the poems! I hope they will touch many people and let them know they are not alone in the depth of their feelings, as others are experiencing the same, somewhere out there.

MY HEART SEEPS by Edith Lazenby

Courage is not only facing fear, but also looking past fear, to see what lies it tells and truths it saves...
Sometimes I sit at a computer in trepidation. The house trembles and I wonder what I will find. 
Truth is not a fact or a feeling. It may rest on love’s heart and walk with integrity. It may stand beyond humanity in ways we can only imagine. Truth can be solid as earth and fickle as wind. But a wind can know stillness and the earth can crack wide open.
Tonight I found a stillness in a crack and managed to balance there...


My Heart Seeps
by Edith Lazenby
I cannot hold on And I cannot let go. I walk a path I don’t know. I feel moonlight But cannot see Its orb midst The cloudy cold. My hands tremble. My eyes tear. My toes wriggle To grasp earth. I want to stand Tall in the light Yet fear shadows all. Inside I crumble Under the weight I cannot shoulder.

FOR THE SISTERS by Tammy T. Stone

These days, I’m finding it difficult – along with many, many others - not to feel disheartened...
I'm disheartened by the feeling that chaos has descended upon us, at the negativity and fear, the anger and reactivity, the violent spirit of animosity characterizing the times. It’s hard not to give in to the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, even as we cling to the strong conviction that it is our positivity and our love that will prevail.
Every crevice of my heart goes out to the suffering (and we are all suffering when one of us suffers), and my heart aches for the untold numbers of women around the world who are immediately and devastatingly affected by recent decisions to cut funding to organizations vital to their health and wellbeing, a movement that horrifyingly undermines women’s sovereignty over their own bodies. Words do not do the feeling justice.
It feels to me that the earth itself is overturning, that our fragile grasp of what is right and true, of our incredibl…

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…
