Guidance of The Heart

     There is no risk in listening and following the guidance of the heart. I believe we risk much more when we ignore it. Each one of us has the ability to listen to the wisdom of our inner voice, each one of us is responding each day to it as it attempts to grab hold of our attention regardless of our level of consciousness. We are either responding ignorantly or consciously. Both responses shape our lives in their own unique ways.
   It is obvious how an ignorant relationship with our inner wisdom can impact the quality of our lives. There will always be a sense of lack that accompanies that choice, a sense of not being fulfilled or a feeling of incompleteness. The fluidity of life will be jammed and our sense of direction and accomplishment will be random.

   When you are listening though, when you are bringing your senses into alignment for the purpose of understanding the wisdom within, the light that spreads itself across the sky seems brighter. But also the darkness can seem darker and more frightening. This is why it seems risky to follow the heart, because in order to truly understand your truth you must know all of its ways of expressing itself which can often include facing fear and pain. But beneath turmoil stirs bliss and joy. It is the light of awareness that allows truth to emerge freely from dormancy to reach and spread itself across the open space of your life. To suppress truth, to ignore it is to stifle its ability to flourish. The flourishing of truth is the unfolding of purpose and life with purpose is abundant, joyful and fluid. What truth am I referring to? The deep well of love that we all drink from running freely through us like a powerful river.
