Dear Ones,

PIANO TALE

When I was young, I used to like to play “Für Elise.” First, it was pretty easy to make it sound reasonably ok. And second, I mistakenly thought the title meant “For Alice.” Turns out ‘Elise’ is a French name meaning ‘pledged to God’, and a variant of the English name ‘Elizabeth’. One of my sisters is named Elizabeth. When I learned to play “Für Elise,” she was but a lovely glimmer in my parents’ eyes.

FUR ELISE

Anyway, I have been noticing my heart energy at play here in the third dimension. It flutters open and closed like the wings of a butterfly in flight.

RAPTURE

And here is how I am always hoping it will be, like the rapture of soaring, sans engine, on the great winds that sail over the mountain ranges of Earth …

GODLINESS

And here’s what Amara Tia Ann has to say about striving for perfection. To paraphrase: When we see that the ordinary is perfect just as it is, and we feel that to be ordinary is perfection, then we realize what Godliness truly is. –from Link: “What Is Godliness?” by Amara Tia Ann, 26 April 2013 … https://acast.me/2013/04/26/what-is-godliness/ ..

So…. Maybe it’s all about awareness, rather than perfection? About noticing what my heart is up to at the moment?

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
