Queen of my Heart

Queen of Heaven

Mary stands at the heart of the Christian mystical experience,
as did Demeter in Greece and Isis in Egypt
and the Shekinah in the Jewish mystical tradition.

She is the mystery sought or stumbled upon by those who
have opened their hearts to the transforming
power of her love

Some of the greatest of the Christian mystics, have
all penetrated to this secret heart of the Christian vision.
And they have experienced Mary as the mystical core
of their being in the image of their own soul
awakening to the revelation it carries.

Angelus Silesius wrote : I must become Mary and give birth to God.

Meister Eckhart spoke often of he greatest Christian mystery -
the birthing of Christ within the soul.

In these glorified beings woman and man are shown
as the mystery they are and as the enlightened beings
they could become.

Fragrance of Roses

Gracious Lady of Life,
Whose garment is the shining heavens.
You are the white Moon among the stars
And the beauty of the green Earth.
You are the Oneness of all things
And the completion of the spirit.
You are the mystery of that which we seek,
If we find not within,
We will never find it without.
For You have been here since the beginning,
And You are that which is attained at the end of desire.

"I don't believe in the traditional idea of
Mary as an actual virgin; that is a patriarchal fantasy.

The woman that we revere as Mary
was enormously strong and powerful
- and radical

The Magnificat is the most radical thing in the
New Testament

Mary calls for complete social, political and
spiritual revolution

To this day
She inspires people

by Andrew Harvey
in an interview on the topic Hope

Le Vierge Bleue


When I run after what I think I want, 
my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;
if I sit in my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me, and without pain. 
From this I understand that 
what I want also wants me,
is looking for me and attracting me.
There is a great secret here 
for anyone who can grasp it.

"....In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.
In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.
In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.
I realized, through it all, that…

In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back...."
