It's alot easier...
It's a lot easier, (tho it be a temporary "easy"), to live your life according to what others say you are, what you should be and what you should believe, then it is to actually go out and do the heart work to find out for yourself.
Not pointing any fingers here, I am talking about myself.
Some challenges and truths I have in my heart lately.
Not many want to do the work, so they survive life in a numbed state of half alive and totally asleep.
They walk around numb constantly shoving down their true heart and potential for a life of counterfeit.
Settling for little tastes of ecstasy and fleeting moments, rather then a life filled with authentic joy and peace.
I don't blame them, it's hard.
It's painful the stuff you have to look at and walk through to get to where your heart is leading you.
Our culture shouts constantly to us that if we are anything but happy happy all the time, then something is wrong with us.
I so get it.
But it's worth it.
We were created to live life being lead by the Divine by way of our hearts.
We talk about God living in us.
He says He will never leave us.
Well, where do you think He resides?
It's in our DNA to be lead here.
Science has even found this to be true. (http://www.mindfulmuscleblog.com/heart-has-consciousness/)
If we choose to ignore the heart, it will not go away, it will only get louder.
It will continue to remind you that you are so much more then the counterfeit life you are choosing to live.
It will continue to remind you of Divine desires and dreams, that your mind can't comprehend or know how to make happen.
It won't stop.
It will continue to make noises and throw up signals that will only get louder and louder because IT knows what you were created to be, and what flows from you naturally.
It knows that you were created to be lead by IT, and not your ego/brain.
It knows that your best life can only accessed through following it, and living in your true self, the person that God created you to be...not these story versions of you. Or the counterfeit versions of you.
And if we don't listen and respond, then the stakes will only get higher and higher... so much so that if you continue to choose to ignore it, the numbing and medicating to shut it up will have to get stronger and stronger.
Ever wonder why in America depression, anxiety and suicide rates are at a all time high?
Ever wonder why addiction happens?
We were not designed to find joy and peace in material gain or position.
It goes far deeper then that, but is really quite simple at the same time.
Just something to think about.
It's a question i bring to myself a lot.
Am I living my best life or am I settling for a counterfeit?
Am I being what I am told to be, or living according to the design of my heart?
I want to have all that Life has to offer.
Life abundantly. Life to the fullest.
