Our heart already knows what our mind has not yet disclosed.
In the randomness of life emotions are often spontaneous
We feel from a heart in motion
Rapid change can prompt a rapid heartbeat
Our inner compass and weather changes without warning
Breathing is treated as a novelty
Until breathing is done with awareness
Our bodies shivers to alert our temperature
Gratitude alerts hope
Pain alerts fight or flight
All of this alerts action
Straight to the heart of it all
Nurture your heart like you’d nurture the tears of a child
Breathe into your life, with heart
When we master the awareness in our alert systems and the timing we take action, we then have less reaction and more action.
Place your hand upon your heart and navigate through a flow of emotionally filled words and thoughts that fill you up, that nurture you’re well being. What would you say to a friend you are nurturing? This may help you return that same encouragement also to your own heart.
Did you know that every change in emotions makes changes in your body that last longer than the emotion. Like building a muscle may leave pain for a couple days, the same is true of emotions, both rejuvenating and depleting. They last and they will either drain or revive us.
We can not control every action around us but we can learn to create a healthier space within ourselves to see the actions around us with a directed gratitude and compassion to our heart for alerting us.
A path of presence is identified by the moments you feel your experience.
A path of presence
Waiting to be felt
Alert and aware
Do you dare
Feel the scars you bare
By sight you may see
Scars on every leaf
Scars upon the trees
By sight you may see
Scars upon a cheek
Scars mistaking us as visually weak
Every scar will leave a story
An experience bared
Healing to share
Nature reveals the dance
Along every path
Beyond a glance
Scars reveal another chance
We have scars on the physical self that reveal the stories of our life. Then we have the scars inside that reveal the experience of moments in our life often stopping time and the ability to be present in NOW.
A scar a sign of strength that you are capable of healing.
They are there to teach you and to grow you not to trap you and to close you.
Create space where new outlooks are revealed. Getting stuck in the mundane and the ordinary leaves you walking a path unhealed where presence cant be felt or experienced, only wanted and never touched.
I looked high and low, in front and behind every tree
I glanced off the cliffs below
I searched long and hard, did you know
In the clouds and in the lakes
I searched rivers and mountains with no breaks
I called for you and no one replied
I cried for you inside
I drove miles and miles looking for a glimpse to pull aside
I longed for you and knew you longed for me
To find you was beyond my reach
I was looking for you
Missing every queue
I looked for the depth of what I should be
Who someone else wanted to see
I lost sight of my own dreams
I thought I was lost where I once was found
Then one day courage stood its ground
Vulnerability spoke with a fierce sound
Wherever you go, there you will be
I’m you and me
When we experience life, life is also experiencing us, I believe. When we go farther and faster and search for ourselves instead of the experiences that creates our selves ,we miss the queues that it is ourselves we are escaping.
When we run from ourselves, we run from our faith, our beliefs, our dreams and our core foundation. When we deny our own existence is not enough because of someone else’s opinion or judgement, then we deny our ability to grow, to serve, to lead, to inspire, to be driven, to reach, to grasp courage with all your might and LIVE beyond limitations set by ourselves or others.
We become stuck within another or others lives and deny our own growth waiting for another growth. The best gift you can give yourself and another is the freedom to be loved at the exact place you are so they have room to move forward. This is courageous!
