Living from the Heart
No bird can fly without opening its wings, and no one can love without exposing their hearts! -Mark Nepo
Sat Nam my beautiful souls,
Living from the heart is truly living. Living from the heart is surrendering to that knowingness that theres something so much greater taking place here. Coming back to that essence to that goodness of wholeness. We are Divine and when we separate ourselves from our divine essence, we stop living. We stop living to our true potential.
Live with an open heart, forgive others and let go. Let go of grudges, madness, sadness, hate and truly surrender to love. Love will forever be the only thing that can heal every heart! Love is the only thing that can make us feel again. Feel alive, not until we let go and surrender to that divine love within us are we ever going to be able to live fully.
In Our Own Element
A fish cannot drown in water.
A bird does not fall in air.
Each creature God made
must live in its own true nature.
-Mechthild of Mageburg
Part of the blessing and challenge of being human is that we must discover our own true God-given nature. We must follow our hearts. It knows where to take us! This is not some noble, abstract quest, but an inner necessity. In order to live a life full of joy and happiness we must break into pieces and we must pick those pieces up and keep going. Surrendering and know that something its happening for your greater good! These are lessons we need to learn. We face them and bless them. But yes its hard! So hard! But you are capable of doing it!
For only by living in our own element can we thrive without anxiety. And since human beings are the only life form that can drown and still go to work, the only species that can fall from the sky and still fold laundry, it is imperative that we find that vital element that brings us alive. We must follow our hearts! We must do whats right at all times! We must live a life of integrity!
“We waste so much energy trying to cover up who we are when beneath every attitude is the want to be loved, and beneath every anger is a wound to be healed and beneath every sadness is the fear that there will not be enough time.
When we hesitate in being direct, we unknowingly slip something on, some added layer of protection that keeps us from feeling the world, and often that thin covering is the beginning of a loneliness which, if not put down, diminishes our chances of joy.
It’s like wearing gloves every time we touch something, and then, forgetting we chose to put them on, we complain that nothing feels quite real. Our challenge each day is not to get dressed to face the world but to unglove ourselves so that the doorknob feels cold and the car handle feels wet and the kiss goodbye feels like the lips of another being, soft and unrepeatable.” -Mark Nepo
