A few pages from Gathering Silence ~

Through you
the world learns to recognize itself -- as heaven.

Protect the wild places in yourself.

There is something fierce in every saint and sage.

How else could they free love from its cage?


Regardless of belief,

everyone is agnostic
until gnosis.



Whittle yourself down

to the question at your core.
Let that empty ache
lead you to ecstasy!



When you know where the Beloved lives,
you are content,
no need to argue with others
over street names.



The individual is really a magical act of seeing with no fixed eye.

Your most secret wound is the doorway.

All of mysticism comes down to this:

to recognize
what is already
and always here.


Outwardly, determined effort is necessary.

But within, nothing is needed
except to yield.



How can you settle into yourself
without
self-acceptance?



Don't strain toward enlightenment.
Relax into it.

“The Longing in Between is a work of sheer beauty. Many of the selected poems are not widely known, and Ivan M. Granger has done a great service, not only by bringing them to public attention, but by opening their deeper meaning with his own rare poetic and mystic sensibility.”

This beloved collection of poetry by Dorothy Walters explores the spiritual journey through its ecstasies, struggles, and vistas. Each step is observed with the keen insight and clear voice of a modern woman who is both a skilled poet and genuine mystic.

Dorothy Walters’s poems are immediate and inviting, transcendent and often playful. Many of these poems are in dialog, with Rumi and Rilke, Denise Levertov and Lalla, each poem contributing its own wisdom and humor to the ongoing conversation that passes between visionaries and sages through history and across cultures.

Marrow of Flame has already become a modern classic among spiritual seekers. Now available in this updated and revised edition, with a new introduction by Andrew Harvey.


These poems make me gasp. I thought all the great mystics had been gone for centuries... Dorothy Walters--part buddha, part elf--weaves mythic literacy with subversive compassion.”
