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.

Today’s Heart Whisper:
                    When a writer’s heart aches to speak…
                                  … it cannot help but soar with hope in pursuit of the elusive word.

Today’s heart whisper:

Do not despair if you find yourself facing the void… For this is where creation begins… Rest in your heart, listen to its gentle beat… and feel its love percolate within your soul…
