Today’s Heart Whisper:

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love.

– Rumi

 

(The following is a short excerpt adapted from my yet-to-be-published book ©Michèle Duquet, all rights reserved.)

 

           Letting ourselves be silently drawn by the strange pull of what we really love means allowing ourselves to love what we love. This may seem self-evident, but more often than not we don’t allow ourselves to accept what we really love because it is outside the norm of what our programming says we ‘should’ be doing. It is a complex inner struggle between what has always been and what has yet to be. It feels self-indulgent or selfish. We can’t imagine letting ourselves indulge in what we really love because of our subconscious belief that we don’t deserve to be doing what we love, experiencing joy without limits. That it can’t be that simple.

            Yet living a life we don’t love, doing what causes displeasure, or being in a toxic environment has consequences.

            The truth is, everything has consequences: the consequence is the life we are living.

  1. Yes, dear Michele, life follows the law of cause and effect whereas an effect can also be a cause and a cause be an effect respectively. We are the ripples of waves of doings, thinkings, and words, the consequences we have to ripe what we have sown and inbetween there is our limited free will…

    Thanks for sharing, my dear friend 🙂
    Have a great weekend
