Great banks of spent leaves lie in brown shaded quilts, beneath a copse of ancient gnarled oak trees. The wind rises. The driest leaves are caught by the icy blast and carried across the jet-black path where they spin revealing each invisible swirl. The leaves drop and with a delicate scurrying sound tumble along the path like a scattering of lost lemmings, and are gone. The wind dies, all scurrying stops. The path is empty of both sound and movement.
Your Healing From A Wounded Heart
If we empty our heart and examine the contents, most of us will find it filled with impatience, addiction, greed, insecurity, shame, meanness, stress and fear. It is easy to feel enslaved by falling victim to these negative characteristics. Is it any wonder that we are far removed from having a life filled with joy? We need to have the courage to refine our character, so our heart can be healed from these enslaving feelings.
A joy-filled life is only possible when we are free of these undesirable characteristics. To experience joy every day our heart must be simple, pure and loving. Listening to our inner call and following our potential will purify and simplify our heart.
When our heart is unwell we feel compelled to fill our lives with all kinds of complexity in order to try and feel fulfilled. Immersed in complexity we are driven to participate in hobbies that do not really fulfil us, relationships that are unsatisfactory and jobs that are draining. To fill the resulting emptiness we surround ourselves with entertainment, possessions and expensive holidays.
When our heart is simple and pure all compulsion leaves us. We feel fulfilled by simple work, fulfilling relationships and a devoted life. We no longer need to be entertained. Having a plethora of possessions becomes a burden. We do not hanker after expensive holidays to make our lives fulfilled. Instead we find joy, inspiration and fulfilment in an enlightening conversation with a friend, a walk in the woods or a simple expression of gratitude at the end of a joy-filled day.
The healing we obtain as we follow our potential is very comprehensive. It heals our bitterness and resentment, our lust for fame, money and power, our lack of confidence, our fear, anger and grief, our relationships and our stress to name but a few. This is because as long as we listen to our calling and explore our potential, love, the most powerful healing medicine, will be growing within us.
Our life-path can be like a mountain river, steep and full of rocks and boulders that we have to navigate. If we stick to the task we will eventually reach that still, calm lake where we can be filled with joy, creativity, relaxation, peace, humility, and love. These are the inevitable rewards of a life well lived.
