We always say we are seeking peace. Peace of mind seems to be a never ending pursuit. Peace with our bodies, a daily challenge. We are either "succeeding" or "failing" that day. Yet peace in our hearts is the most stable and the only pursuit that will lead us to peace internally. Listening and allowing the heart mind to lead us, direct us, guide us, tell us the truth, is the only peace worth seeking.
Allowing our heart to direct our thought mind on what to focus on relieves us from worry and scattered thoughts, wasted ideas, and wasted time. The thought mind may want to reign supreme in your life and control what goes on, where you go, what you do, what you should think. If it will allow the heart to lead it, thought energy comes into focus to meet the heart's wisdom and becomes a laser beam directed at fulfilling the heart's pursuit.
Allowing our heart to direct our bodies will always lead us to what it is the body needs to function in that moment. The heart will tell the body the truth and if the body will give the heart the benefit of the doubt, it will begin to trust and reap the benefits. The body will then come to relax, trusting that the heart will lead it in the right direction. When the heart's wisdom is honored, the body is no longer used to reveal the pain of its unheard song. The body becomes your trusted vehicle to take you through this earthly experience with strength and groundedness.
All three aspects of self: the heart mind, thought mind and body mind, must all cooperate to lead you forward in this existence in the manner your spirit was charged with. Your heart mind was entrusted with a wisdom, a knowingness, on what that is. Ignore your heart's message and peace will elude your mind and your body.
But you know this already. In your heart is the truth of who you are. If you listen to that truth and trust the heart to lead the mind and direct the body, the intensity of that focus will lead to peace - internal. The heart will be full and whole. You will have achieved what you have been pursuing all of your life - your heart's expression.
The first thing you have to do...is listen.
