WOW, what a great month February has been for truthful awareness and love! I was talking to my friend who is having a tough time with everything lately and last night he lays this heavy hug on me and says, “we’ll get through this”, and I had to respond with, “Its just life, its no big deal really. Just put one foot in front of the other, the mountain is only as big as we see it.” He didn’t like what I said because he is in a different space and that is ok. But, I was happy for the change in me that I suddenly witnessed… Lately, life is not that big of a deal especially if I have my health. I feel that everything always seems to find a balance somewhere or its time to leave the planet, so why worry? For today, by the grace of God, I am in a good space. I am so grateful! I pray this awareness lasts forever. 🙂
My favorite take away from one of my most powerful books (A New Earth) goes something like this, “We know the universe is always giving us opportunities to increase our awareness… How do we know this to be true? Because if we were suppose to be somewhere else, we would be.” ~Eckhart Tolle. We are exactly where we are suppose to be – period.
This month I have been focusing on Love and the power of the Heart in my Weekly Guided Tele-Meditation Group and I have had the blessing of discovering the difference between the power of my true heart and that of my mind. The magnetic field of the heart is 100 times more powerful than that of the brain, therefore it is my mind that suffers a “broken heart” not my heart. The heart is strong and solid and constant. The heart is our direct connection to God/Source/Higher Power and Source is bigger than any emotion.
I’ve come to learn that my heart is not seduced by emotions either, that is the manifestation of my mind creating plays and stories about how things are suppose to be. It isn’t that we are to become emotionless beings, but being aware of the Truth is powerful. I gained so much power in realizing that when a boy ended a relationship with me it was not personal, it was how it was suppose to be. If my heart was in the lead back then I would have hugged him, told him I loved him, and wished him all the best on his journey. Instead, my mind told me I was not good enough and he was an ass and “poor me”! My mind told me the whole relationship was terrible because it did not turn out the way I imagined or wanted which was an expectation too great to be true. Without expectation there is acceptance. Where there is acceptance there is the power of Spirit and True Love. The Heart is all about acceptance, the mind is all about expectations. By transcending the mind, I have been able to connect fully with my Heart. I have become FREE!
My wish is that you too join the ranks of Freedom whenever you can. If you are looking for peace of mind or freedom of heart, try sitting quiet and listening to your heart. Do not be seduced by the emotions created by the mind which has painted a very small picture of what your heart is. Go deeper into that space of oneness where acceptance is key and notice the shifts. It may take time, so keep at it. If you do, you will experience a freedom greater than you have ever known.
