Poet Publishes 40 Years of Work in Five Months
Carena del Uno, the author and poet who recently brought "Welcoming Oneness" to poetry lovers last February 19, 2013, returns to weave her literary magic with her second collection of poems in her new book, titled In The Heart of Forever. The author continues what she has beautifully started in her debut book. This time, after encouraging readers to open their hearts and minds to the wondrous beauty of being, she empowers them to burst forth from the seed and expand toward full growth and potential.
"When the heart swells with love or the mind soars with inspiration such that you want to keep the feeling forever, you either sing of your joy to the heavens or write it for posterity," the author states. "These poems are the journal of the first 30 years of my mystical life. Each of them held an illumination following a learning experience. Many gave me faith, courage, peace or understanding years later. Having been blessed with these writings, I wanted to share them."
A sampling of the author's captivating writing is shown below:
O divine and beautiful friend what makes you so to strive?
Know you not, like the apple tree, that your seed of unfoldment's inside?
'Twas mind that implanted the restless thought that growth was to be earned
as it fashioned the pillars of consciousness in order that you might learn.
Yet heart knows your seed's true nurturing ground lies deep within your core
where only through Peace, Love and Wonderment can you sprout Life a little bit more.
So become thee the child and relax in God's Grace;
dance in the Sunlight; smile in your space.
For remember - you are neither building up nor down
but unfolding to a Love that's true
that opens forth to the simple and profound
where you'll find that the One Seed is YOU!
Years of illuminated teachings from a number of advanced metaphysicians and spiritual guides gave the author a reservoir of life lessons which she now, in turn, tries to put into practice. These taught her that "the planet and all on it are in a transformative period, and, as life's energy is seemingly escalating, our challenges and choices are escalating also." This is the very wellspring from which the book draws its relevance.
