I’ll pass on this question and if my heart whispers or shouts, let it.
Whispers, shouting, then silence. Which to strengthen through listening and which to ignore and allow to pass to silence?
Listening and so to understand what it is trying to convey. To know when hurt, it closes up and to actively try to find balance between hurt and still being present – and being vulnerable? Yes, and aware. With an open heart? Yes, this would honor my heart`s whisper. I am afraid.
When you lead a life in the Quiet, raised voices are rare. Who wants a shouty heart anyway?
By the same principle I posted yesterday …….
The same principle I relearn and appreciate EVERY DAY
“It is not sufficient to know things, because such a knowing is merely of words, meaning nothing. Spiritual growth results from the absorption and digestion, and putting into practice of the simple spiritual laws.”
From the teachings of Both, ‘Researchers of Truth’ [ DASKALOS ] and ‘The White Eagle Lodge’
To give talks on spirituality or to be in an emotional state is easy. To put into practice or to leave the egoistic tendencies aside is a hard thing to do, but also gives some joy. You are very right. Practice, practice and once you finished, practice. Thank you !
Yes , self examination requires self honesty, and self love. There are no books for that although the book stores shelves are lined with “words” claiming too know how.
The Sufi Poet RUMI said it well
. “this morning , like every other morning, you woke up tired and lonely, don’t go to the library and start reading from more books, ….Make the beauty you love be what you do, there are many ways to kneel and kiss the ground”.
In today’s world it’s easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and allow the sounds of the world to drown out the whisper our souls. My intention every day is to stay tuned into my heart and listen to the whispers of my soul but like so many of you I still struggle with creating the space in my life to slow down. I feel as if I do slow down but apparently I am not listening to the whispers. Thank you Patricia for your prayers and you message.
I can listen to my heart’s whisper when I acknowledge what my body is telling me and be more assertive with those around me. Trying to fit in with others caused me to become very ill last week and also full of resentment. My heart was screaming by then. If I had spoken out early enough this wouldn’t have happened but it’s always easier to see a situation in retrospect 🤔
Thank you for putting in writing what my heart is feeling. Last week from Friday to Friday I was in turmoil. One of the worst weeks for me, I wish I had the wisdom to say no. I too became very ill, migraines like no others. My body was screaming. When would I learn? Why do I keep doing it? Would my life change in June when I retire from work? God, I pray it does. The burden of expectations is Drowning me. My heart is full of hope!
I can honor my heart’s whisper by ignoring the stew of fears my mind dumps on it to try to stay in control.
By meditating and paying attention to those whispers. Which I am going to do right now. Daylight Savings Time always sends me into a tizzy. So, time to meditate….
🤔 Another one of those kind of questions-
The answer is always let it be- let it go.
Today I am honoring my mother on her 5 yr anniversary. I can’t believe how time goes by. I made a memorial donation to one of her favorite charities, Best Friends, she loved animals. On her birthday I donate to a Siamese Cat Rescue Organization.
A really loving way to remember her….
Thank you Mary Pat:)
To take care of my inner self by my meditation. Concentrating on living the now and do things that I want to do for personal growth and satisfaction. Keep reminding myself hw wonderful I am and that I am good enough.
The best I can do is meditate and go inward. If I don’t hear what I’m supposed to when I’m supposed to, it may become a shout. I figure if that happens, it’s necessary. If the heart needs to shout, it will shout!
Listen to what my heart is telling me and honor that. She knows. She knows.
Knowing who I am, what my truth is, and then “honoring” it with action or inaction, always with love. ❄️🌷🌈
