The vast universe of the heart

Beauty stole over the skies

In silken veils of colour.

I sensed something special was going to happen.

I watched and waited. And enjoyed the cold sunset

Until I was rewarded with a heart in the sky.

“The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe.

The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars.

Fire and lightning and winds are there, all that now is and all that is not.”

— The Upanishads

  1. Beautiful and so mystical. Your waiting was rewarded, and what better reward than then a heart. The Eternal Heart which loves the universe, the Eternal Heart which loves each of us.
