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…

Allowing Others To Effect Their Own Destinies
Most Sundays find me at Circle of Miracles, which is an interfaith spiritual community created 19 years ago by Rev. Hannelore Goodwin. It is where I, and many who attend the ecumenical services, find family of choice, inspiration, community and healing. The room is a warm and welcoming place where D

The Only Life You Can Save
One of my favorite wise woman poets is Mary Oliver whose words touch my heart in ways that few others can; as if they could have come through me as well; so personal they are. Today, while visiting my former place of employment, one of my co-workers pulled out an anthology consisting of the works of

Abby's Light
  When a light comes into the world, we hope that it will last indefinitely, knowing that eventually it will fade. When a child is born, a parent doesn't expect that his or her light will diminish before it has a chance to fully express itself...and yet, sadly it happens.  Abby Schumer was

Light Filled Holiday
This morning, I saw a meme on a friend's Facebook page that expressed: LIKE if you plan to be politically incorrect by saying "Merry Christmas" this holiday season. My response to her was: "If I know what people celebrate, I will greet them with their preferred sentiment. I have friends of many diff
