Conversations of the Heart
spiritual direction and companionship
While gentle silence enveloped all things, your Word, Beloved, kissed light into creation.
These meditations invite us into the gentle, enveloping silence of contemplation. They arise from the ground of silence and sing of Love’s desire for us to be one. They invite us to turn into the ground of our hearts, and to follow the stirrings of love into the luminous oneing of our being one in the heart of God. Written by Dr Kerrie Hide and given by Kerrie and Robyn, these meditations are written in the mystical Christian and Buddhist tradition of contemplative teachings. These meditations invite our participation in communion consciousness, which as Kerrie writes: “awakens as we enter into the ground of our heart, recover our original memory of bring one in Christ, and stabilise in the organic identity of our participation in the ecstasy of the Trinity” (“The Ecstasy of Agape”, in Ilia Delio, ed. Personal Transformation and a New Creation, 103)

In this series of four meditations, we enter into the ambiance of the impending US elections, stablising our centre in the consciousness of Oneness, in Omega Christ consciousness, in the heart of divine creativity itself. Here, as part of our Greening Creation Meditations, we will continue to cultivate insistence that limited belief systems grounded in fragmentation and separation – from the earth, each other and within – are not Reality or our essential human nature. Together, we will enjoy what Beatrice Bruteau describes as “the movement of consciousness from God, in God, as God, out into the world, a movement in which the divine consciousness and my consciousness, flowing together, stream out in love and in creative, healing, beautifying, energy to create the world and to make it better.” (Radical Optimism, 132).

In the series of four meditations (below), prayed between Pentecost and the feast of the Sacred Heart, we follow the touch of the enflaming of the Spirit in our hearts into deeper and deeper oneness in the Trinity, in the one divine heart. The themes are universal and may be prayed at any time of year.
