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.

Where LOVE Roams Free

Why do people live with limits willingly? I always wonder why they choose the pain of being trapped rather than the pain of working towards their dreams. It's pain both ways after all. Isn't it more torture to be trapped? Or maybe the cage becomes a safety net..against the risk of disappointment. If you don't try then you can always imagine you could have..but if you try and fail? You don't even have the dream anymore.

It's the word FAIL that i see as the real cage. Is it true..that failure is not getting what we want, the way we wanted it? Or is it true that failure means you didn't get it at the pace others have set for you to attain their version of YOUR success? If it's YOUR dream..then how could anyone else understand it? And if they cannot fathom it, how could they ever be qualified to judge it..and deem it a success or not?

That you DARED to DREAM is success.
That you DARED to TRY is success.
That you DARED to take the WALK ..one step at a time..is success.
That you DARED to be TRUE to YOUR OWN HEART..is a success.
Most of all..
That you DARED to REJECT FEAR and JUDGEMENT..is the greatest success of all.

There is no failure..except one..that you stayed in a cage content to live with the sadness of being unable to use your wings.

But what if merely cherishing your dreams is what makes you happy after all?
What if living within limits becomes your comforter..and makes you secure and more able to love others?
Then i can see..

That to DARE to live WITHOUT NEEDING DREAMS TO COME TRUE...can be success,
BUT ONLY IF it is what fuels the love within you to flow freely to yourself and others.

For perhaps you are a Penguin or an Ostrich or a Kiwi bird..and need not actually fly at all.
Or perhaps like a pampered parakeet, you actually prefer your humble home and sing best in it.
So then, if limits, your 'cage' does not make you love less, or halt love from flowing freely from within you..
perhaps that is all your dreams are FOR..to stay a mere inspiring sunset upon the horizon.

For LOVE doesn't take count of HOW you let your love flow free..as long as it does.
And i would do well to emulate Love..and never again judge, what is the best path to freedom.
It would seem, as different as we all are..we have as many different ways of getting there..
where LOVE roams FREE.
