follow your heart

The Sunrise of Your Heart

Your heart is a beautiful sun meant for all to see like a sunrise. The sun of your heart can be covered up, and yet it continues to shine its light. You can cover up your love as clouds cover the sun, yet the clouds do not stop the sun. The clouds do not even touch it. The sun shines regardless of what is superimposed upon it. The sun of your heart shines the same no matter how many fences and moats and shades of night do their cover-up.

Where All Your Light Is Revealed

Do you see how a tall tree grows? It is not copying another tree. It is not trying to be a tall tree. It is only being itself, layer by layer. It is like, as the tree grows, it exhales in total relaxation. There is no effort. The tree is not trying to attain, achieve, perform or anything at all except to just be the tree he is.

You see where I am going here. My children go through all sorts of somersaults trying to attain to something. Trees just attain their full growth without exertion. They are not running a race with other trees or even with themselves.

You Can Soar

The possibilities of what you can be are endless.

You can be anything you want. You can be a simple person who goes through life adding joy to the lives around him. You can lighten the world. You can be like a smile to the world. You can be a person who sweeps the streets, and you can be magnificent. You can be a great friend. You can lay down the red carpet for everyone. You can be a hero. You can become rich and famous and still be that simple person who adds joy to the lives around him. It is your choice. You can be anything you want.

Who Is the Healer?

When all the answers to all the questions in the Universe are within you, how necessary is it to seek knowledge from outside you? When you have more than enough money in your pocket, you don't run out to the bank to get change. When you have plenty of butter in your refrigerator, you don't run out to the store to buy more. You don't go out to find that with which you are already fully stocked.

In terms of knowledge, your mind does not remember what I bequeathed to you. Your body has not forgotten. Your body and heart know more than your mind can contemplate let alone fathom.

Your Heart Is the Key

You are always searching for the truth that your heart already knows. Beloveds, there is nothing for you to learn. There are only the coffers of your heart to open.

How can this be, you wonder.

When you hear Truth, do you not nod your head up and down Yes? How would your heart confirm that it is Truth you are hearing unless your heart already knew it?

Your Heart Knows

Whither goes your heart, beloved? What draws it? What pulls it out? Where does it want to go? Let it.

Your heart is like a dowser. It knows where the gold is. You only think you do. Have you not sometimes had a desire fulfilled only to discover it becomes like dust falling through your fingers? What was the big deal, you later ask yourself. Why did it matter so much when it matters not at all?

Plain Love

To thine own heart, you have been false. Unless there is joy overflowing in your heart, you have been false to it. You have tried to denature your heart. You would have it be an instrument other than it is. You are timid with your heart. Otherwise, why would you protect it so?

You have made of your heart a dam, and you regulate it. Your heart is not meant to be regulated or relegated to sequences and rations. Your heart is meant to be full-fledged. You have been holding your heart back, even if only by a thread. Let your heart give birth to love now.

The Fulcrum of Life

You have a tendency to regard yourself as a surface Human Being who must look out for himself. You aggrandize yourself on the surface of life. You think you are cleverer than you are or more beautiful or more popular. You do this at the same time as you denigrate yourself. Do you not frequently disappoint yourself? You disappoint yourself because you know your magnificence lies not in the eyes of the world. No matter how great your beauty, fame, career, they are not you, beloveds. The surface changes. Before your very eyes, the fleeting surface fleets.

Knowing the Difference

It is from the depths of your heart that the high notes come. In your heart is where truth lies, and truth is always a high note. By truth I do not speak of accurate details, but of the ultimate truth that sustains all life. It sustains you. That which you call reality, you know by now is not. That which you call reality is the shimmering surface. You have a firmer foundation, and the shimmering surface need not take such a toll on you. The changing world is not your ballast. It does not keep you on an even keel. It rocks you.

Joy

What is progress but greater joy in life? Despair is not progress. Soul-searching is not even progress. Joy is progress. Be open to more joy in life. Have it. Claim it.

Filled with joy, you honor Me. I could even say that joy is your duty, but joy is your joy. I do not know how to separate joy and love. Have joy in life, and you will love life for the enchantment that it is.
