“Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.”Paulo Coelho
It is to be said that the heart, if you listen closely, will always give you the answers to life. The questions that we ponder, that we cant surmise from logic and so let slip from our mental grasp.
There is plenty of room in our life for logic,something we revere and celebrate. Then there is love, a noun, verb and adjective that in all of its simplicity, just is. The motivation to articulate our plans or to navigate the turbulent challenges that try to derail our destinies. The ability to rebound and find comfort after loss and heartbreak. A reminder that generosity of spirit is the foundation of every kind of relationship. The warrior against negativity and cynics alike.
Do we lack the focus to understand what our hearts tell us? To tap into this incredible source of power? Are we guilty of keeping it on reserve until it is truly worth of it?
In the last year, I can personally attest that when challenges arise (there have been many), its more difficult to conjure up love not just for others, but also for yourself. Fake it ’til you make it, of course. However, when things aren’t clear, life becomes harder because clarity is low.
Lean in. Love and your heart. It might not feel comfortable because emotions that run deep and meaningful are sometimes harder to reach in times of struggle. Don’t stop until you find your treasure. The truth is that love is beaming magnification when you can’t look straight into it.
