Lighter than a Feather

Freeing the flow of life energy through the path of the heart

The heart is a gift of the gods, beware of neglecting it— Amen-em-apt

Through the heart, 
the mind and the body connect with the soul and spirit.

The god of Amen-em-apt will weigh your heart 
on the scales of death, opposite Maat’s feather of truth.

Be light of heart, lighter than the feather
illuminate your heart to enter the after-life.

Balance the matrix / let life energy free flow.
When heavy and dull, the heart is burdened / atone and feather the heart.

Open the space of the heart / the vessel of the subtle mind
clearing for light of the Buddha-dharma.

Spiritual potential / human consciousness / receptor / conveyor
storing love where the yearning of consciousness is the absolute.

The root of a power / joy, love, compassion, equanimity 
the foundational centre of mystical perception.

What shall I be?

I have again & again 
grown like grass
I have experienced seven hundred and seventy molds
I died from mineralogy 
and became vegetable
and from vegetativeness I died 
& became animal
I died from animality and became man.

Then why fear 
disappearance thru death?
Next time I shall die
Bringing forth wings and feathers like angels
After that soaring 
higher than angels
What you cannot imagine
I shall be that.

Seemingly simple is the prose and a sketch yet they can carry 
a strength of the heart and soul far longer than we can know.

We write for the moment
and let the future, be.

Rumi-nation conveying spiritual rising
a floating lotus through the imagination.

Gifts of the embellished 
bringing voice through words.

Carrying gifts of the heart through time and space
from each of us, to each of us.

Namasté, Leah
