Don’t give in to your fears.
If you do, you won’t be able to talk to your heart.
there’s a panic that sinks in when we fear we’re doing it all wrong, and a worse panic when we give in to that fear, tying us in knots……maybe a healthy fear is about walking through it, owning it, honoring it…..and moving on….listen, listen, from that deep panic…..
There is no box. Don’t just think outside the box. Disregard the box altogether because there is no box. Or make your own damn box and make it any shape you want. You get to say what goes. You define you.
Promise yourself that you’ll stop binding your life plan with shoulds and supposed to’s, and just make up your own rules as you see fit in your current life, as things are, today. And you can feel free to continuously redefine your master life plan as you change and evolve since you inevitably will. Cultivate the beginner’s mind –it has no biases, questions everything, and sees anything as possible.
Honor thy heart, for it knows what you really need. Get quiet enough to hear your heart’s whispers and then trust what is revealed to you in those whispers. The heart, a super-sensitive organ, is highly susceptible to the trickery that our minds like to play.
But staying present by being where your feet are keeps the brain chatter and mental trickery just faint enough so that we can still hear the heart speak. Listen to her, do not shush her. She needs to be heard or she will retaliate.
I try to believe like I believed when I was five-
when my heart told me everything
I needed to know.
