The heart is a diamond


The heart is a diamond

That has known the furnace of fire

And the consolidation of ice

Ice and fire

These two

Are the states

In which the diamond is formed

Over ice flows I travelled

After the fire burned out

Wilderness places of freezing

Where it was colder

Due to the memory

Of how love once burned

So brightly and warmly there

But if the fire went out

Was it truly love

Or just desire

Desire can fade

It does

When the projection is pulled away

But love is a constant flame

It is what is left

After the fire burns all to ash

And the ice melts

Leaving a pool of tears

It is the tempered substance

That endures with both states

And finds within those experiences

The deep mystery

Which gives birth to itself

Love’s absence

Leads us to burn or freeze

Until we are transformed

From players in an illusion

Of wanting and ego

Love is what we find

When the burning and freezing is done

When our desire becomes

Less than

The longing to really love everything

Free and clear and pure in our diamond heart

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
