Who can tell what's in the heart?

Updated on November 11, 2012

The Heart of Nature


It's not what's in your wallet that counts, but what's in your heart! But who knows that?

Who can tell what’s in your heart?

Who can know what you feel, the way you feel it?

Who holds the image of what you see, the way you see it?

There are those I’m sure,

But not many can know what we know,

The way we know it.

As I read the stories here I see them through my eyes

But my eyes aren’t your eyes

My mind isn’t your mind

So how can I know what you know

And feel what you feel?

These are the questions my ego asks

These are the questions of humanity

But they are not the answers of the soul

I meditate, I listen and I ask the source of all being

Make me privy to a glimpse of their world

Let me hear what they hear, see what they see, feel what they feel

And when my heart has opened

When my mind is bypassed

This stream of warmth flows in

Like a tail on a comet

Bringing with it the light of the universe,

The experiences of far off places

All meant to let me know we are one

That is when I know what you know

See what you see

And feel what you feel

It is brief and intense and beautiful

It is you, within, when you write

What is in your heart

That’s how we can tell!

Your kind comments are always welcome!

      And that is the love flow that connects us all. Until recently I would never have thought such an abstract concept could ever exist. But now I have felt it, it transcends the realms and traverses through those who are open to it and it exists right here. A very inspiring write Born2care. My votes and thanks to you.

      Thanks Billybuc!

      It takes one to know one! I am blown away, inspired and deeply touched by the creativity, passion and compassion of the writers here, like you and others, many of whom I have yet to even know, who come to this place to express themselves. It just amazes me and I couldn't help but share my wonder!

      Thanks Billy, for being a part of that!
