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.

The Forgiveness Factor

Lately i have been looking at the thin line between selfishness and self-love..it can be tricky for some to self love without becoming selfish ..and yet to genuinely self love actually enables me to become self-less in a more giving way

I think this is the magic in life..
two sides of the same coin
but facing it the right way up
is the only way up that opens the lock

I'm in a very dense relationship and it keeps holding me back from being the true free spirit i am ..but it's where my soul has chosen to be, to perfect a karmic lesson it needs to learn..
and it seems to come down to one simple thing..forgiveness.

It keeps everything simple to recognise that since we are all ONE..we all inevitably err..and instead of overanalysing or being too hard on ourselves (or others)..we can choose to recover quickly and move back to JOY

forgiveness.. another face of compassion
another name for LOVE

It's MY Life

Is it really good practice to just live MY own life? To mind MY own business and do MY own thing?

In many ways, it is. For we are all unique, each on a road no other could ever travel or comprehend. And so, the values and principles i choose to live by are based on MY truths that are unique to my own set of circumstances and constraints in life.
And yet, isn't it possible to take these words as a license to do as i please without a true heart of compassion or realisation to the fact that, whether by form or by spirit, we are all truly connected in word, deed and thought to one another? It follows then that every choice i make impacts others whether i dare to admit it or not..

Yes, i can Live MY Life..but

and all that i choose to say and do and think and feel
like a ripple............
reaches the farthest shore from me

Yes, i can Live MY Life..but

living from my heart
i choose to affirm
and uphold another
by choosing every word and deed
with LOVE
rather than justice

for every ripple from another
responding to my choices
reaches right back
to me.
