I think this is such a gorgeous notion. In our culture it seems that we often attempt to divorce the mind from the heart. The struggle of reclaiming one's purpose becomes fragmented and chalked full of duality. We judge ourselves by our inability to silence the mind from a stream of thoughts...we place the chamber of our hearts on silent mode so as to live from knowledge instead of creating a synergistic relationship. It is our birthright to to fall in love with the rhythms of life...all of the experiences of our life are helping us to grow the inner light of our being. When we allow radiance in the darkness we ripen the fruits of our labor. When we are able to stand as a witness in our lives, transformation unleashes miraculous possibilities. As a wise philosopher once stated, "Just because you have a thought doesn't make it true." In each moment of our lives we are pregnant with opportunity....opportunity to witness the divine tapestry of our lives.
It is Rumi who invites us back into this hardwired relationship of connection by reminding us, "Do you pay regular visits to yourself?" The more you sit in silence, the more vast your inner landscape becomes. You notice thought, but you don't attach to it. You grow in compassion, kindness, presence, and non-judgement...you simply allow yourself to be transparent. In making these regular visits to self, you strengthen the connection between your head and your heart. Friendliness towards self and others becomes the ripest season in the harvest of your life.
May your practice of mindfulness bring you much joy and presence in this Season of your life.
May you Sweetly Seek:)
