Listening to Your Heart is the topic for today’s blogging.
Some time ago, I heard a friend say that she was doing a collage on “Listening to her Heart”. She’s collecting pictures and arranging them on a board with the focus of listening to her heart…what does her heart say, what does her heart want…what does he heart feel. I thought, what a beautiful way to connect to her heart…to her depth longing…to her passion.
Another young woman I know yearns to work less, to have more free time, to say NO to the 9-5 routine. However, those around her strongly believe that a strong work ethic is the 9-5 routine, and she is following them, not wanting to disappoint them… and not listening to her heart. Years ago she longed to move to Colorado…she felt pulled there, however, she never did.
As I write this, I’m deeply sensing the depth of different between these two individuals and their situations.
The lady who is creating the collage about listening to her HEART, is on a path of discovery…of listening to her inner thoughts…to discover, to learn, to change, and to grow. With such a practice she’ll be moving ever more into alignment with her purpose, with her authenticity.
In the second situation, even though his young women is doing great service in the world and making a huge difference in people's lives as a therapist, she is following her "head", what she feels is the “right” thing to do in the world and not her heart…or that which she wants to do.
As I listen to my heart, I see that I have such a deep longing to share truth, to sing it from the mountain tops…to shout it from the mountain tops!! I yearn to support people as they yearn to live and grow in the world.
As I write this, I’m asking myself…WHY is this so strong in me. I wonder about the WHY behind this. Perhaps it’s because I myself, have had such a difficult journey finding the TRUTH about the way this whole works…the underlying principles behind it...the principles LIVING it.
Perhaps I think I’ll ease my own pain…. if I support others. Perhaps I want to try and save others years of searching…years of going from one teaching to another… years of struggle.
And yet I know we each have our own path to follow…and our own timing. And if this is so, perhaps it really doesn’t make a difference at all…if I share my experience… because each one will discover their own path… in their own timing. AND the truth is that everyone, is time… makes it to the mountain top…to the truth of who they are…to the truth of what life is all about. SO, why do anything at all….why care….why work… why write…why do anything at all?
I do know that truly it does matter what we do or don’t do! And it matters what you do or don’t do. We each make a difference.
If it hadn’t been for those who went before me…I would not know what I know today. If it hadn’t been for the books that have been written… that I’ve read… I would not be where I am today. SO, we each do make a different…We each have a role to play….We are all interconnected… and thus do make a difference.
The trick is, we need to do whatever we do…with the deepest truth we know and without expectation. We must do our work, without expectation for any reward, without any need for acknowledgement, without any need for compensation. And thus, we live freely…and rightly…and honestly.
So, I ask…
What is your deepest desire?
What do you yearn to do?
What do you yearn to be?
What do you yearn to share?
Wishing each of you great love and the courage to listen to YOUR heart…and follow.
