First: It’s my intention this week to build on a theme/a thought that will come to an ultimate conclusion which so far seems to be ending sometime next week – we shall see;
Second: Starting in about 12 hours (these posts are usually posting at 12:15 am U.S. central time), there will be more posts from my friend Heidi. Just for the record, I’m apolitical, but Heidi is just the opposite. She has some unique views for you the reader and for those that are politically motivated.
All that’s written here is for you Think about!
If your life is anything like mine, you often see, hear, read, or even tell others, “Follow your heart, it won’t lie to you.” There is a problem with this expression – to follow ones heart means to follow ones emotions. To follow your heart/your emotions, is dangerous and confusing… just ask almost any man how he likes to deal with emotions – not that men are devoid of emotions by any means. What I mean here is; think back to some time(s) in your life where someones heart/emotions made a decision and what the outcome was. Most such memories will present “bad” memories. What’s even worse? We still make decisions from our “feelings”.
On the other hand, what is meant by, “Follow your heart…” is, ‘follow your intuition.’ Intuition is what some of us call, ‘hearing that still, very tranquil voice that you know is part of you, but not you.’ That voice which when we listen and act upon what we hear, we learn it will not lead us in a way that will bring harm to ourselves, nor even others. It’s difficult to trust that ‘voice’ from time-to-time, mainly because it tells us something that may take us away from our self-interest, but the more you act on what you ‘hear’ or know to be true, the greater the trust you develop with that ‘inner voice‘.
More on this tomorrow!
Have a wonderful week… and trust that inner voice!
