Allow Your Heart To Be Your Compass

 

Wander whimsically. Allow your heart to be the compass on your journey as you tread lightly on the path before you. Have not a clue about your ultimate destination. Instead, trust that the One who guides you has the most magnificent trip mapped out, with alternate routes and detours; your own personal AAA (Awesome Awakened (I) Am). At all times, you have a choice whether to follow the map, stepping on each stone or leap frogging over them, taking the safe ‘straight and narrow’ or meandering off into all manner of grand adventures.

    Always nice to see your suggestions here, Edie. Yes, my heart is my compass on this Monday morning…

    Couldn’t agree with you more, Edie! We are very well trained to think by head and forget to check our heart a lot of times. What seems right to our head may not be the right thing to do. I always say, “if it doesn’t feel right, it won’t be right”.
    I also like how you say “tread lightly” and not have to have a clue on our ultimate destination. What we can think of and plan for our life is limited to our own experience/knowledge/wisdom. I can’t think of the possibility of having a 20-year-old plan for his/her life when he/she reaches, say, 60.
    Nice blog! I will continue reading…

Changing the Dishes
  Fellow Good Men Project author Thomas Fiffer shared his insights about the holiday of Passover. I saw his blog entry this morning as I was contemplating what to write for today's Bliss Blog. Having been raised in a Jewish home, Passover was eagerly anticipated all year long. The pre-holi

Self Imposed Slavery
Tonight marks the first night of Passover which commemorates the journey from slavery to freedom of the Jews in Egypt who were compelled to work at the peril of their own lives.  Jews around the world (and others who are invited guests as they were in my childhood home) will gather to celebrate a

That's What Makes You Strong
  Another soul passed into the Light yesterday to join the celestial choir. I first heard Jesse Winchester's music in the 80's. As a consummate singer songwriter, he had  a gift for vivid imagery that took the listener along for the ride. Songs such as Mississippi, You're On My Mind,

Hot Air Balloon
Recently I was speaking with someone about the things that weigh us down, like a hot air balloon tethered to the ground with heavy rope, spiked into the dirt, sandbags reinforcing them.  Self deprecation, limiting beliefs, old worn out ideas that no longer serve, all of the shoulda /woulda/ coulda

Open Tabs
  Chances are you have seen the commercial from back in the 80's  called This is your brain on drugs. In case you weren't yet born, check it out and in case you were old enough to remember it, here it is for your re-viewing pleasure.  Although I am drug and alcohol free (by choice and not
