“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
Sometimes, we need help figuring out what our hearts are yearning for and deciphering those whispers that we keep hearing in our heads. Other times, we know exactly what it is that we can do to give us a sense of purpose but find it difficult to do on our own. This is where we share emotions, make some sacred music to the beat of our heart rhythms and weave our whispers into a tapestry of comfort that we can wrap ourselves in.
Feeding our hearts with giving/receiving energy for others and for our planet Earth, is spiritual. It gives us the same euphoric endorphins that comes with any Spirit connection, those grounding feelings of calm and joy that seem to exude from within by creating a glow that people notice in our demeanor and on our faces. What salve can we use to create healing and kindness for ourselves or others? Might I suggest randomly paying for a stranger’s morning coffee, compliment the elderly on their beauty, pull over to pick up trash from the roadside, give a flower to someone or look in the mirror each day and smile. Do these things, for the mere reason of being ABLE to. We are alive. There is a purity in the spirit of humanity and being a catalyst of creating change, ripples of positive energy that are soaked in by another. We are vessels that need to be filled up and when we are intentional with our actions, aware of how our compassion affects the world around us, our cup does runneth over with gratitude!
