Expanding our vision

Image result for pictures of seeing through your heart


“Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart, and that depends upon how much he has polished it. Whoever has polished it more sees more — more unseen forms become manifest to him…” Rumi

There are so many ways we can see our world.  The more we expand our thoughts and energy, the more we see.  Mary Oliver says it so beautifully.

When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

When it is over, I don’t want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened,
or full of argument.

I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.”

Mary Oliver

  1. The importance of seeing our world from many different angles. So very difficult right now, Karen, but man, absolutely critical. And I’ll be honest, I’m having one hell of a time opening my heart to some or understanding in any way where they are coming from. The instinct is to pull in and put up the shields….

    1. I absolutely understand Lori. And I don’t always explain how difficult that is. For me it’s a daily practice of surrender and connection. It’s a practice visualizing what I want in my life but not knowing how or when that will manifest. And at the end of each day, it’s an acceptance of ‘what is’and learning to expand that into gratefulness for what I do have. Put down the shields lovely Lori, and live in amazement. It is there to see. 🙏🏻💕🙏🏻

  2. Beautiful Karen. Thank you. Life is so spectacularly amazing, especially as we see through and polish our hearts!
    I hadn’t read this Mary Oliver poem. Such a treat!
    Much love,

    1. Thankyou Mary. I wish we could always see life through polished hearts, but I guess that’s why we practice!! Mary Oliver is always a treat for me too. Have a great day. 💕

    1. A work in progress for each of us Helen. 🙏🏻 I think you see it more often than you realise, when you look through the lens and bring us beautiful captures of life, so Thankyou. 🍀🍃💚
