The Heart of the Storm

The Heart of the Storm 2

Our hearts are very wise and have a far deeper understanding of life than our minds.  But to get to the wisdom of the heart, we have to listen very carefully.  When it feels like we are in the midst of a storm, our knee jerk reaction is to try to change the situation or run away from it because we believe it is the cause of our unhappiness.  Unfortunately, we have discovered that even though we may be successful in escaping or changing a particular situation, it doesn’t always make us happier.  If, instead, we could stop and take some time to listen to the wisdom of our heart, I wonder what it would love to share with us.  First, it would remind us that how we experience a situation is the result of our thoughts and beliefs about the situation.  Second, it would remind us that we have the power to change what we believe and how we think.  When we choose to listen to and follow the wisdom of our heart, we will find the peace we seek and the ability we need to gracefully sail through every storm.
