Holiness of the Heart – English

Yes! There IS a holiness to the heart’s affections

When one is moved in purity and truth to love another

Or rather, there ‘ought‘ to be a holiness

A recognition of the divine

An acknowledgment of ‘the spirit of creation’

A healthy respect for the holy union

Of two souls captured

With a mutual affection and bound

Without self consciousness to express

Such a delight of relatedness!

It is still so wonderfully innocent

In an age where innocence, is rapidly being obliterated by ‘progress’

In a world where nothing is sacred, anymore

And vulnerability is seen as an opportunity for exploitation!

The heart’s affection’s then, must surely be ‘the most‘ sacred

In a world where nothing else is

And are to be honoured, respected and heard

For in listening to the inner-whisperings of one’s heart

One may learn something more valuable and precious than gold!

For to evolve through Love

Is the greatest spiritual teaching on Earth

To which one may aspire

From personal, through transpersonal

To unconditional and universal

Emanating like The Sun

Fostering life, where previously there was none

An illumination of The Soul

A massive deposit in the Karmic bank-account of Destiny

A lifetime investment that can never depreciate, even into the afterlife

The true role of Love is to uplift and inspire

Infectious like a smile

Like a virus of giggles

Like a sweeping epidemic of laughter and joy

A conscious choice everyday

There really is only One way forwards

Everything else

Is resistance…

Holiness of the Heart was inspired upon hearing an adapted version of John Keats famous quote: ‘I am certain of nothing but of the holiness of the Heart’s affections and the truth of Imagination‘ which Keats wrote in a letter to his friend Bailey (Full letter here) regarding his love affair with neighbour Fanny Braun. It was adapted for the film ‘Bright Star’ (2009) directed by Jane Campion.
