It is in the Heart

It is in the Heart

Things grow in me as they unfold when I walk.
It is some kind of a deep process, as walking is a process of seeing
and seeing is discerning and discerning is knowing with deep understanding.
And as I go beyond, I see connections and relationships in an
intricate architecture of one and all.
The crux as I discover it is how I define myself in relation to the unfolding experiences,
as they amalgamate with a much larger and broader experience of what is beyond,
that even our neighbor who walks her dog every morning
partly defines who I am in the grand scheme of things.
This is how I live in innocent wonder as I wander
as I go back to the roots of longing and belonging…

that is in the heart.
