#Blesstival ~ Behold Nature’s Mystical Call

Photo992

This post is part the Blesstival series happening at Jamie’s blog ~ Sophia’s Children. The purpose is to spread blessings through this season of ” Newness”.

I found my offering by Mira via random poetry process, using the book Love Poems from God by Daniel Ladinsky.

Nature is one of the ways that Spirit speaks to me. The beauty and subtlety get me every time. So it is no surprise that I discovered this piece to share with you, a blessing from the natural world.

A Limb Just Moved

You taught Your songs to the birds first,

why was that?

And you practiced Your love in the hearts of animals

before You created man.

I know the planets talk at night

and tell secrets

about

You.

A limb just moved before me,

the beauty of this world

is causing me to

weep.

Notice the planetary reference? I see this poem asking us to pay attention to nature in all its majesty and to remember our place in the circle of life on Earth. Take comfort in both its wisdom and ability to transport one back to Source.

I was unfamiliar with Mira before I opened the page to her poem. According to Ladinsky, Mira ( Mira bai) lived from 1498 – 1550 and was considered the most renowned female poet-saint of India. Apparently she was born a princess who was devoted to Krishna. She later became a rebel and champion of women’s rights. I think we would be friends!

Thank you Jamie for creating this exercise. Love is my religion and blessings spread the love. Let’s be the love we want to see in the world.

NAMASTE

Poetry ~ Venus in Pisces

I had a dream last night about ” James”, which has not happened for quite some time. I told him about my blog and asked him to read it and how connected we are at WordPress. Yes I am plugging my blog through the dream portal! He told me he was in love. After some reflection it occurred to me that the dream may be heralding the Venus transit into Pisces. Since “James” and I share a Neptune/ Venus connection and he is such a Piscean/Neptunian spirit, it rings true to me.

So I decided to grace this blog with some more Random Poetry. I will get centered and randomly open to a page within Love Poems from God.  Let’s see what happens.

WITH THAT MOON LANGUAGE by Hafiz

Admit something:

Everyone you see, you say to them, ” Love me.”

Of course you do not do this out loud, otherwise

someone would call the cops

Still, though, think about this, this great pull in us to connect.

Why not become the one who lives with a

full moon in each eye that is

always saying,

with that sweet moon language,

what every other eye in

this world is

dying to

hear?

 

Wishing you a misty sweet Venus in Pisces where poetry reigns and hearts melt.
