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.

    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…
