Crucible of The Heart


What beauty is born in the crucible of the heart?

Those moments of despair that seem to crunch the

very life out of me, yet in their wake, leave golden

blessings, fragile in their being, singing

with grace and purity, knowing the way into

the worlds of God, come always with great sacrifice.


Yet Soul cares nothing for the cost; it gladly pays

the bill for services rendered, surrendering all

to fulfill the requirements demanded of Soul.


Moving closer to God Consciousness,

the heights, the depths, the all encompassing

presence that kisses the heart, the painful

touch scars the tender heart with its searing

love, and no matter what comes, Soul cries out,


“Whatever it takes, take it all, leave nothing of me

for I am nothing without God’s Breath

breathing life within me, I am undone, I am

ecstatic, for contentment fills me with

nothing left to lose.”



Lost is a place I found

long ago and far away, in silent dreams between

lifetimes spent at the edge of eternity

with longing so deep the pain seemed more

than Soul could bear, yet somehow I did survive,

sometimes it seemed, barely hanging by a thread.


Then a brief remembrance would stir deep inside,

an awakening, yes, a land of golden, silent secrets

whispering light and sound, calling Soul to

catch the gift waves, to ride into the light

shining beyond the borders of heaven.


So when forces combine to batter me,

I am strong, in my weakness, I go down on bended knees,

yet I do not waver in this testing, this challenge to

stay on the razor's edge of consciousness,

for it is life itself

and I dare to immerse myself in Love forever.


At times the tests are so hard they wring the

tears out of my heart, rending an anguished cry,

Help me God, Help me...I can't do this on my own.


Only Holy Spirit moves me in ways

unknown, yet with complete trust I am moved

by the wind from the mountain of God,

surrendered, unresisting the battering ram,

so when times come to stretch me thin,


I am gentled by an accepting heart, born to

love all life, no matter what.


I came back this lifetime to earn Mastership,

no pussy footing around, no wimping out.

I embrace the crucible of the heart

as I become a greater student of Life

step by step, moment by moment,


For the ways of Spirit are ancient, yet

new to me, forever easy to remember,

so hard forgetting.

Beauty speaks its creative likeness into

Soul desiring nothing, just to love and honor

its Truth, with effortless effort, for it just is.


Soul, just IS the seed of God,

planted in the heart, taking root

with conscious awareness of Its Divinity.

For Soul to give all that it has to give, and then, more,

practicing the discipline of Love.


Strengthening Soul's capacity to meet the

ever increasing demands Spirit makes of Soul

in the moment,

this is all there is,

for the moment is now and now

is the eternal nature of Soul.


I am joyful and grateful for all opportunities given me,

to make great or small offerings, to say thank you

with love to Spirit for this precious lifetime of service.

I find the deepest of love softly breathing

within the crucible of the heart.....

Do You Dream with your Eyes Open...Fran Blackwell shares the love

Do You Dream with your Eyes Open...Fran Blackwell shares the love | Poetry for inspiration | Scoop.it

So much Wisdom in commercials these days.

Just filled with God Wisdom, when I listen.

Do I dream with my eyes open?

Opened or closed, does it truly matter?

In the heart of the matter......


I know I dream with my heart open,

yes, and my dreams for spiritual liberation

and mastership are ancient and new

the quest continues, never ending,always

blending into experiences that go beyond time and space


Into the worlds of no place left to go,

yet I am always going to somewhere or other

within the realm of God.

I know this may seem far fetched, yet

my longing for God supersedes doubt

no doubt, ever, why?


Because I am experiencing this or that

makes it real for me, and no one can take

this experience away from me...it is mine alone,

and you are welcome to your own God Given experiences.


When I focus on my dreams, on my deep longing

for God, all things disappear except for the ache

that lingers on, just like a song that ended

but the melody lingers on and on


leaving echos of the divinity within me

reminding me,  focus on my own journey

or I may miss vital communication that

travels through the heart surrendered to


acceptance,

appreciation,

gratitude,


yes, the language of God speaking to me/Soul

through the Presence of the Beloved.

This Presence is constant, only requiring

Attention,

Listening,

Being Awake,


and most importantly following through

and applying the gifts received through Service.

Contemplate on the Spiritual Benefits of Service.........


For me I have discovered, Service with Love

is the key to Gods Kingdom, and I am an inheritor

of this kingdom, why?

It is simple really, I am IN Gods Will

Be done, yes done did doing

All done..

well not really, just that moment of Now

and This is Now now now now now

Gods will be done in love and service.....

so carry on and on and on and on

and

Dream a little dream of Zee

To Listen is to Love - Fran Blackwell

To Listen is to Love - Fran Blackwell | Poetry for inspiration | Scoop.it

I Wait

Never say never. Yet before the

everlasting gospel of consciousness,
distilled within the heart of joyful

anticipation for what is and
ever was, never lacking, save in

understanding, without a doubt,
what life's all about.


It is never just about you.

The question is, are you being served all you need

in order to fulfill the needs of Spirit?
Ever ready when Spirit calls,

you respond in loving service.
What an honor to be able to hear this biting call.

With a listening heart, poised on eagles’wings,
far seeing with eagle-eyed vision

into all the tapestry weaving,
the fabric of the living breathing

wisdom of the ages, an ancient book,
whose pages are filled with the

experiences of Soul's learning,
Spiritual maturity, and the complete knowing,

in truth of God’s love for Soul.


What more could a Servant ask for?
Except, let me be of greater service,
And as always,

I await the inner direction before acting.

For with divine attention firmly attuned 

I know

To Listen is to Love

Hu Ma   shares the love... | Poetry for inspiration | Scoop.it

Into the stars
My Soul doth soar
Into the depths
Inside the core
The Oness calls
For my connection
That I may feel
My Soul’s protection
Within the NOW
I journey there
So with my SELF
This life I share
All I’ve lived
And died as well
From the highest peak
To the darkest hell
Unite within
The Heart of ONE
As planets go back
Into the sun
My life beyond
This lonely world
Into my mind
Has been unfurled
My heart as well
The TRUTH has found
The limits of sweet
Love unbound
Soon the Angels
Herald here
To bring the love
And clear the fear
I place my feet
Upon this ground
And bless this life
That I have found
I’m ready now
To give my service
To all above and
On the surface
On Gaia’s heart
I lay my hand
To call the sky,
The sea, the land
The time I’ve spent
Upon this earth
Has brought me to
A new rebirth
As Home I go
I also stay
The path I leave
Will show the way
I enter now
Into the ONE
I AM the moon
I AM the sun
I AM the stars
And now I see
The Oness I
Shall always BE
