That’s Success

Standard

It’s a simple way,
a simple truth,
a simple life—
to simply open your heart
to all that is.
The trouble is,
you don’t need a product
or an expert to show you how to use it,
and so this way isn’t advertised,
and so most of us don’t know about it.
But I promise you,
I will spend my whole life
living this open-hearted way as much as I can.
And maybe my open heart
could help other hearts to open
along this path I walk.
To know that I coaxed just one heart open
by living my simple life…
now that’s success!

Meant For This

Standard
From the book Open Her: Activate 7 Masculine Powers to Arouse Your Woman’s Love and Desire

Ah, love.
Just pause a moment,
say nothing.
Close your eyes,
breathe.
Can you feel it?
Can you feel your heart beating?
Yes. This.
This is your power.
Feel your power,
don’t be afraid,
just let it flow through you.
You were meant for this.

Something Completely New

Standard

And just when I least expected it
my already broken heart
broke even more.
Was there one last
piece of the past
that needed to be pulverized
in order for something new to be born?
Suddenly, it was all broken,
the devastation deeper than I ever knew.
I slept fitfully through
yet another long, dark night,
and when the morning light
reached my eyes
there were words of forgiveness on my lips,
a whisper of hope,
a promise of something completely new.

No Better Welcome

Standard

For a few days
I step away from the routine.
I sleep differently,
eat differently,
move my body in different ways.
I’m intentional with my time;
choosing only those activities
that deepen my connection with Spirit.
It’s a sacred time,
a prayerful time,
a time filled with infinite possibilities.
I dream that all sentient beings
may take such time for themselves.
As we retreat from the world outside,
we return to the home within.
No better welcome could ever be found
than the homecoming provided
by the One
who stands at the door of your heart
and waits
for your arrival.

Return to the Truth

Standard

I realized it doesn’t always have to be
quick and dramatic…
sometimes it’s nice to take time.
My modern mind has been raised
on instant gratification
but my ancient heart
has its own rhythm.
All this time my mind
has clamored for attention
as if it’s the only one who matters here.
Meanwhile my heart waits
patiently as ever
trusting that the time will come
when I return to the truth of my being.

Who’s With Me?

Standard

I think I might be healing.
My heart doesn’t feel so broken today.
Is this an illusion,
or am I finally seeing reality?
I get to choose, don’t I?
For the last eight months
grief, rage, sadness and loss
have been my constant companions.
Today I proclaimed I wanted a divorce from them.
What future feelings do I want to experience?
Joy
Freedom
Humor
Fulfillment
Safety
Connection.
Who’s with me?

Open Heart Manifests

Standard

I discovered my grateful heart
is the door to all good in my life.
Everything else is just peripheral.
I can stand at this threshold and
survey all the good.
I can turn back,
or I can jump into this new world
of beauty and possibility
that shines up at me
from all angles;
It gives me tingles.
By relaxing,
I can savor the day more amply
and allow the flow of good
to pour more abundantly
through all of my life aspects.
Yes. I confess I feel so blessed.
I had the wisest teachers help me
stay present and witness how only
the open heart manifests.

The Greatest Miracle

Standard

Early this morning
I took a deep breath
and I asked my heart
some questions.
Why was I surprised
when the answers
were so sweet, gentle,
and simple
that they pointed me
back home
to the truth
I always knew?
I suppose I had bought in
to the idea that miracles
were these huge displays
of cosmic power and grandeur.
Now I know better.
Now I know
the greatest miracle
is a simple recognition
of the tender heart
of awareness—
quiet,
gentle, sweet—
the heart in all of us.

Your Tender Heart

Standard

What are you searching for?
What are you hoping to find?
What do you think will make you happy?
Stop.
Just stop, close your eyes, sit still.
Take a deep breath.
Everything you always wanted
is where it has always been,
where it always will be–
right here within you,
inside the most sacred
chamber of your achingly
beautiful, tender heart.

Irresistible Heart

Standard

The pressure is off.
You don’t need to be perfect.
Just work hard
to discover who you really are
then share that with the world.
Your voice is unique,
so is your mind
and your spirit…
there will never be another
exactly like you.
The world longs to know you,
the real you.
Would you deny us that?
Have mercy on us,
give yourself completely to us,
know who you are,
and shine that self
into the world,
illuminating us
with the radiant beauty
of your irresistible heart.
