Down, down, down you go
Into your HEART, don’t ya know…
There you’ll find a point of connection
Where the world is linked in a magical nexus…

I originally wrote this little poemette spontaneously on my Twitter feed a few years ago. I just was scrolling through my old posts today, and I saw it. I’d forgotten all about it! It made me smile, so I thought I’d share it here on my poetry blog. I’ve been blogging more in prose lately on my travel/lifestyle blog “A Muse on the Loose” –weaving stories and snippets of wisdom and randomness about my gypsy philosophy, travel tips, lessons learned, and adventures. But I do miss poetry. I’ll get back to it more regularly soon.
I am an astrologer, in addition to an artist, writer, and holistic physician/healer. I am a Scorpio sun sign, but I have the planet Uranus conjunct (next to) the sun in my birth chart. This makes me a very Aquarian Scorpio! (Uranus rules and is thus strongly associated with the sign of Aquarius.) Aquarian types love to bring through new ideas, humanitarian “love your neighbor” principles, a sense of freedom and individualism, and so on… Connection, innovation, evolution, and oneness are big Aquarian themes.
I didn’t title this poem when I first wrote it, but when I re-read it, I thought (with a bit of a laugh), “There’s some Aquarian fluffy stuffs for ya…” It’s all true though.
We are connected.
The poem sounds very light and playful, but it’s actually about something really profound.
I personally do believe there is an etheric or energetic network linking us all. And probably the heart is the central point of individual attachment to this grid. The deeper we drop (or EXPAND) into the heart and into a sense of impersonal, non-specific love, the more transpersonal and connected we become (our focus shifts to the grid, rather than our bodies). Love loses its individual dimensions and becomes generalized (it’s not about loving someone specific at that point, it’s about radiating and BEing LOVE itself). Everyone can get there, I think, though it may take work (releasing blocks), practice, and intention…And sometimes we can only find that magic spot now and then…(such is the case for me). But it’s worth looking for. Regularly. It’s the best place ever!
There, there is no I. Only LOVE. What’s better than love? Nothing. And when love is everything, what have we got…? UNITY.
