There are two ways we can talk, from an opening heart, or from a closing heart. Often it is when the pain of a closed heart troubles us that we are driven to remember that the voice is really a means of blessing and healing. Sometimes it takes the speaking of truths to clear the heart, to remember what speaking from the heart means, and what the miracle of an open heart is like. In this way, the voice is something transformational.
Then maybe we remember that speech, and all our means of expression, make the magic circle of the heart. Then we see the real magic of language and its liberating power. Expression unfolds as the power of love and liberation, and what was barren and blighted is quenched with peace, affection and good will, and the garden blooms anew from a greater reality, from the flower that created the tree, the wine that created the grape, the pearl that created the oyster, the love that created the lovers.
Gaze into the heart and see causality flow backward to the well spring of now.
Speak from the opening heart, and it is so.
Our choice, our will, our love, to return to the well spring of our nature.
