The Heart of the Matter
Okay, first off I would like to say "You're welcome, ladies!" Then, for those who are of a different persuasion, I would like to say, "You're welcome, gentlemen!" And now that that is over with, the reason that I chose this photo is obvious...isn't it? It is a photo of the area of the heart!
In life there are many challenges that come up here and there. It is important when that happens to get out of our heads, which are usually filled with fear and self-doubt, and stay in our hearts. The most amazing decisions can then be made when one truly comes from the heart. When these decisions are a matter of life or death we sometimes head straight to the head. Instead, these are exactly the moments when we need to turn to the heart. There is no wrong decision when it comes from the heart centre.
Sometimes we have to also trust, which is a heart issue itself. We need to trust ourselves and our decisions and we sometimes need to trust others. We place our well being in the hands of others every day. We blatantly get behind the wheel of a car and drive the streets that are filled with other drivers. We have to be conscious of what is going on around us, but to a certain degree we also need to have a trust, if not in the other drivers then at least in the process of driving. Medically we can be met by challenges that force us to trust our health care providers and the process that our bodies need to go through in order to survive and be well. Recently a friend of mine went through a surgery that was extremely needed for his well being. Then there were some post surgery complications that hospitalized him again. He was very trusting in the process, even though the rest of us were quite concerned. As it turns out, everything is alright and he is back home. He has inspired me to once again believe in myself and my decisions and to trust in the flow of the universe. Thank you, buddy! You ROCK!
