Embracing Heart

Let’s explore the heart today.

Finding Heart

Where do we find the heart?

Lesson: Heart is the process of connection

Hold this truth to help improve the world around you. Heart has many definitions, depending on what connections you need to support your life.

In seeing the heart, you also expand the meaning it has. It will expand out how you work with what you see.

Use this method to see the world with, and you will be surprised to discover a living growing world rather than a dying one portrayed by the media or prophets.

The future is shaped by this difference in how you move ahead with vision. It’s simple and effective! Be careful in this culture now defined by fear; those in power will try to convince you there is no heart to keep you from acting with your heart.

We have the power to restore the heart to our world. First, we must be reminded it’s still present and then act upon it.

Be alive where you live!

When to Close the Heart

I got this question this morning to share

Is it okay to close our hearts to people? If they have hurt us or even if they love us? To make a conscious choice to do it?

In the larger truth: we are all one. Our hearts always touch and are shared.

In the smaller truth: of where we are now, as we busily tussle and shift about being an individual. At times in kindness: we must move on, to leave a person (or ourselves) be themselves fully. To do so means letting the heart go its separate way. We are each our own person and at times need to establish boundaries for reflection, to grow with new experiences and to become a complete soul. It’s the right action to go our way to help the heart become more.

So

The simply answer is yes

If closing the heart is an act of kindness

Understanding that kindness has multiple levels, and that kindness of closing the heart means helping the person (or yourself) heal in a complete fashion. Then it’s OK to move on, to let your heart make its journey separate from others who you once loved utterly. So they (or you) may find new answers, share with others, from different perspectives to find their peace of heart.

In the heart, we are always truly connected, always having a part of your life shared in the heart. Nothing ever erases that time, but in the now when two hearts no longer fit together, it then becomes a time to let each heart grow anew into new experiences. To grow back into the larger whole in this very search.

Never erode the heart or break it
Trying to make it fit the shape of another heart.

Let the heart be true & grow in life as life moves.
Rather than mold it to another shape not your own.

So the simple answer is:

Let the heart move with life, to grow and experience connections. In time, as we grow, it always reconnects back to those we love.

A conscious choice to close the heart means to let it grow into your life rather than let it be trapped by false and imaginary boundaries.

Letting the Heart Lead the Way

So many times, I get asked a question on how to find direction in life.

So often, I respond/teach a simple answer at first :

Follow a smile.

A smile is an invitation to connection. When you smile it means that is something you WANT to connect to!

The trick is learning to trust how the heart leads.

/ over /

How the mind builds.

Because building requires direction, we often delegate full attention of direction (project management, etc.) to the mind and then lose our internal sense of direction from other aspects of our life. We always need to understand every person walks multiple paths at once. Never to turn off the heart-mind. If we only live to mind or only live to heart, we miss living a full life.

So in trying to focus on only one direction, we often get lost since we lost touch to our larger life.

A smile will remind you what to include in your life’s direction.

I am very stuck when it comes to being kind to myself ; I’ve had abusive relationships and I’m more comfortable being unkind to myself. How do I actually love myself?
thanks

I searched the internet for midlife crisis and came across Personaltao. Started reading and watching then paused and my eyes welled up with tears of release. I’m now working on smiling and breathing. I have felt so stuck and have been very volatile missing the beauty in my life and the world around me. This judgmental / cynical 46 year old husband and father of two must be ready for growth and change because what I’m reading is resonating with me to my core. I want so badly to get off this emotional rollercoaster. For this moment I am somewhat… Read more »
