Strength….something that everyone’s heart possesses. I feel it in everyone. I see it in everyone that lives from their heart. Unfortunately, most live high in the mind. It is vast and complex. They are lost in the recesses of their past. Lost in pain and despair from all the thoughts that ring so loudly. Terrified that each move will bring failure and disaster. To them, it is like a maze without an exit. Each turn brings a wall that pushes them back. There is s soft voice from their heart that calls home. Giving them the path that will lead them out. There are quite times they will hear the voice and start to follow it’s call, but the chatter in their mind is loud. Sometimes deafening. And it leads them astray. Only to once again come face to face with another mocking wall. Their hope of freedom growing dimmer with each step. Imagine for one minute, being able to feel this is so many people… It is heartbreaking. It is a chore for me to hold back the tears. I try to call to them, but all I see is their backs running away.
There is a way out. Where the walls fall to the ground and you can walk straight to the heart. I will tell you that for most, it will be hard. They have become acclimated to the voices in the mind. For this to work, you will have to be diligent. The key is to find your quiet place. A place that even the mind has no choice but to become silent. Mine was among the trees in the water.It gave me a pattern to know what silence felt like. I then took it back and learned what it meant to truly meditate. To bring your mind into a theta state. To be able to hang on that edge where your body sleeps and your mind stays just awake. The only thought here is driven by your heart. Your mind becomes silent. You then allow your heart to lead you out of the maze. From here, your heart teaches you how to calm the thoughts in your mind. To allow you to understand that what is….just is.
Be aware that society is nothing more than an egoic mind. It WILL try to rebuild those walls. You will need to unplug yourself from its endless chatter.
