Growth through Stillness

There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you?

Rumi

I believe in and feel that candle in my heart, flickering in waves, never going out.  The candle is constant, there throughout and cannot be snuffed out.  I can connect with the candle in times of quietness as I meditate, watch it as it dances inside and speaks to me.  It does not speak in words but through emotion, it is my life-force it will not be extinguished while I live.  After that, I don’t know, I would imagine it will light elsewhere, where I am because it is connected to my soul.

There is a flower too, it’s opening more everyday, I believe it is at the root of me but reaching up as it grows and flourishes, as I grow with it reaching out to the possibilities that I am presented with.  The flower is love and truth, it is fed through the love that passes through me, that I give out and receive.   The flower does not need nourishment to survive but any that is provided makes it even more beautiful.

There is a bird, I’m watching it, it’s purple and it’s ready to fly…………
