About Living from the Heart ~

We live by stories passed on for generations about who we are
and where we should be going. But these stories don't always let us live our best lives, because they aren't our personal legends.

Living from the Heart is about discovering our own stories. Choices with Intention. It is the journey to be true to ourselves and to dare to be all God and the Universe made us to be.

Caring is NOT worrying about Others

"What is an “Act of Caring?” It is a simple two step process which always begins with Step One: Paying Attention to the Needs of Someone or Something. This means to watch and listen with your ears, your mind and heart in order to determine someone else’s needs. Step Two: Giving. Give to the person (or thing) in order to help them feel secure and to grow and evolve, to become more of who they are. To care for yourself is also a vital component to your own happiness and when you identify and pay attention to your own needs and respond to yourself in order to feel more secure and to grow you are caring for yourself.

Caring is not worrying about others. It is about genuine concern and responding to needs in order for growth to occur. It is.. caring that allows the Soul’s love to awaken and solve the problems, heal the confusion and end the pain."
~Michaiel Patrick Bovenes

So, Caring is NOT worrying about others. It is responding to another's need in order to enable them to become more of who they are. Not who i think they could be, or who they may become, or who i need them to be.
And how do i know if there has been genuine caring?
If Love then flows into the other being (or into myself) on its own accord, and the being then becomes ENABLED to deal with life with their own God-given birthright-store of inner wisdom and life-giving intuition.

What a beautiful truth i can accept today and set not just myself, but so many others free with as i start CARING the way caring is meant to be ~ <3
