“The greatest wealth is a poverty of desires.” ~Seneca~

I recently wrote the Universe
Knowing in truth
a note to myself
about the parallel and oppositions
flowing through my mind
choices made
lessons learned
loses and gains

the presence of truth
the beauty of love
the grace of sensing
all the world within me

looking at my experiences
materially and spiritually
counting the blessings
in the loss of most material things
opening the heart
to the spirit

feeling an emptiness
of desires
of wanting to do this or that

wondering if I am out of alignment?
perspective off in some way?
Is my integrity intact
as I did stop walking my talk
In the sense of doing that and this?

Just didn’t have the need, want or desire for it

Feeling just a strange knowing
Of peace,
Of joy
And Being.

Embracing this…
Seemed odd
And somehow not right

Now realizing in truth
I am right on due course
To true Self
Living a freedom
Alien to me before.

Busyness not needed
My mind seems wanders
Maybe I ought to be doing
Then I stop and ask myself
a simple question

Is this my mind or my heart/soul speaking?

The words vanish most of the time
Unless the heart/soul speaking
The nudge to get moving start kicking in

I just smile with the brilliance of the signs
I am receiving for confirmation to my letter
Eight simple words placed before my eyes
“The greatest wealth is a poverty of desires.”
From the wisdom of Seneca

That emptiness is filling with love, joy, and compassion
As my world lifts up and beyond my mind’s desires and needs.
Knowing my needs and desires are already met.

It is worth repeating…
“The greatest wealth is a poverty of desires.” ~Seneca~

Embrace your emptiness
and let your heart fill it with Love
and the universe will deliver just what you need. ~jh

 

Whispers of the Waves

Whispers of the Waves

I hear the whispers of the waves;
vibrations through the colors and motions of friends

Sending a hug

And feeling the caress of the return
the moment’s waiting
for the world to turn

So I response without initiation
Follow through with intentions
As I feel the noise within me surge
Passions and the silent yes
Climbs up my spine
as the breath is taken.

Deeper into the soul’s grace
And the beauty of the dance persist
Music lingers between my fingertips
As the pounding keys
bounce in delightful rhythms
Song of the heart tingling brilliance

As I wait within the whispers
Overhearing the ideas and plans
The wavering notions of peace and chaos
Smiling with the exhaling strokes of fingertips’ song
Take a moment of appreciation
For those friends’ vividness echo through the breath. ~jh

Music of Laughter’s Magic

Music of Laughter’s Magic

When entering the stillness
the quietude,
releasing the mind, the ideas
and I fade into the nothingness
of being
I enter the void
of darkness
of creativity visas
of possibilities.

Come to the place
in time and energy
where magic lingers,
waiting
waiting
dancing as someone
come to claim
the innate magic within

the music of the soul
the beat of the heart
the truth dwelling leisurely
yet pounding with grief
until we get that clue

Laughter is one way
to reclaim the obvious
understanding the trust
distilled in each cell.
disconnect the monkeys.
Another is the music
outside
that creates that opening
inside
inside the deep,
the dark
to light the way

to that lingering magic
waiting,
twiddling thumbs
or tapping toes…
waiting
for the knock on your head
connected to your heart
leading to your realizing

You are that magic
always available
always lingering
always persistency present
like that thing called Love.
Simply be aware of the loving magic
you truly always be…

Enjoy your laughter
as you’re dancing to your music.
It is the most beautiful YOU. ~jh
