Today’s Heart Whisper… sometimes the loving choice is to let go.

You ask me to lift you

and so…

a hand a heart a soul
touches you

you insist
where you are I must also be

but I know
where you are is a ghost of me
where you are I chose not to be

You pull you tug you stamp

you insist
Where you are I must also go

but I see
and I listen
and I feel
and I sense

and so…

my hand my heart my soul
lets go

with love
With light
With compassion

for me
for you

I let go

 

When someone asks for help and I see how their story keeps them in pain, I extend my hand, my heart, my soul. But if they are very attached to their pain, they’ll want to pull me into their story, into their pain, into what justifies it. When their tight grip tries to pull me to where they are, I understand I must let go. Come here I say. Look here I say. But if they insist on staying where they are, unwilling to move, unwilling to see anew, in their full free-will, I must let go. With love, with light, with compassion I extend a prayer… and let go.

Tuesday’s Heart Whisper… Where does kindness come from?

Do not confuse kindness with niceness.

Niceness comes from playing by the rules and hiding behind the expected.

Kindness comes from the depths of a wise and compassionate soul, no matter the rules or expectations.

Given the choice, I choose kindness.

“When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for you to stand upon or you will be taught to fly.”
– Patrick Overton

Tuesday’s Heart-Whisper… an intuitive whisper…

Today’s Heart Whisper:

                Intuition is always whispering its soft loving guidance and wisdom with magnificent clarity and simplicity. Always. It is ever here, patiently waiting for our attention, for our focus. It does not scream, it does not argue, and never wishes to intrude. It is most respectful of our attention, even if our choice is to focus elsewhere.

                It knows that heart-whispers can only be accessed within the stillness of a soulful moment. And it knows that soulful moments cannot be forced. It knows the soul is gently awakened to its whispers through a sincere and conscious desire: through human freewill and effort.

                And so it waits, ready to deliver its message, in full acceptance of our human choice to pay attention …or not.
