the heart and soul of veronique

“The Soul of you is what you are passionate about &
The Heart of you is HOW you live that passion”


A right Heart exceeds all.
           ~Benjamin Franklin

Rather than providing a typical bio, we are giving you the heart and soul of Veronique through prose that she wrote that began her journey and a prayer that she says daily as a reminder to her commitment of supporting in any way she can, those who are ready to be awakened to what is probable.

Veronique wrote this poem in 1989 and her journey evolved from it. The words below expressed her passion to change a life inhibited by a lack of confidence, struggle, confusion, & illness into a life of being free and passing that legacy onto her children instead of what she was currently living.

The prayer underneath the prose is the heart of what she lives moment to moment, day to day, which reinforces her commitment to be love over fear… no matter what.

the beginning

A place of preferment
A smitten ideal that never seems to materialize
 in a vaguely conscious mind.
Perhaps a way to understand love,
 love, with no conditions, is to throw all preconceived conceptions
 or yesterday’s collections
of shattered what if’s and should have been
to the fire of reappraisal and glorify every moment
as the enchantment of life.
Indestructible memories felt whole
with no other purpose except the purpose
 to connect moments
that would discipline oneself frequently,
 if not always, to the expanded thought
 that all experiences,
if free in this incredible innocence,
 this non-judgmental belief,
would open up an exquisite revelation
 of the simplicity of love.

I am firm in my resolution
to remain impassioned with this single thought,
 for it is my chosen journey
to unveil fear in all its disguises
 without any emotional anchor
that weights the soul in a
God-forsaken quicksand.
To ascend to a position
that reigns in constant rhythm of being in life
 — whole —
with no luring hook
that harkens less than 
the joy of the love of self, 
life, all.
If prodded into an expression of my feelings
 I would humbly speak: 
“There is no way to capture love,
 love is free likened to the wind
that surges in one moment with intense
 and in another
like indecisive fingers,
love softly caresses with a gentle breeze.”
Tonight, I awaken,
Completing what appears

 ‘TO BE’

The Beginning

a message from veronique

So many leaders have influenced my path, His Holiness the Dalai Lama is one such example of humility in service to humanity. This is what I strive to live daily in example. I know and share that all pieces matter as part of an ever evolving altruism for growing my commitment to do my part. Here is His Holiness’ daily prayer, one that I use. This prayer has served my journey.

“May I be a guard for those that need protection
A guide for those on the path
A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood
May I be a lamp in the darkness
A resting and healing place for the weary
A healing medicine for all who are sick
A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles
And for the boundless multitudes of living beings
May I bring sustenance and awakening
Enduring like the earth and sky
Until all beings are freed from sorrow
And all are awakened.”

Happy Trails,

through the years of service & play
