With All My Heart: Thank You

Open the heart
and the heart opens you--
salt of the creator
eye of the beholder
stretch your arms overhead
the rainfall of pure clarity
and let it come down.

Surrender to the boundless
earth, sea, and sky
place them like a garland
around the altar of life,
a prayer for peace
at its base,
in its mysteries, 
unafraid of sinking.

Open the heart
and the heart opens you.

Happy Birthday! I come to your Thursday class at Inner Strenght all the time and it has changed my life. Tomorrow is my bday as well and tonight was the first time that I managed to to the wheel (during my practice at home). Anyway, just wanted to wish you a great bday and thank you for your wonderful classes :)

Happiest birthday wishes to you! Thank you for posting that poem...the first line of it has been lingering in my head (and heart) since hearing it in savasana on Thursday. Lovely!
