Healing our Inner Self

Healing our inner state of being is done with kindness and compassion. In this process, development of the heart is essential. We must learn to use our heart as an organ of perception and project a heart field that is open and generous. This path is one that leads from self-absorption to caring for others. When we realize that everything worthwhile in life is created as the result of love and concern for others we begin to recognize that everything we do leads to a consciousness evolution of our spiritual nature.

Our lives are improved immeasurably by softening our hearts and approaching everything with genuine gratitude. This can be a real challenge in today’s busy world where it often seems like events conspire to knock us off balance on a daily basis. We must persevere if we truly want to reach a better place.

We are never just doing. Wherever we are along the path, it is always a process of becoming something greater.

Perfection of character, the path from self-absorbtion to conscious caring and service to others is a long and bumpy road, but it is the only one that leads to the top of the mountain.

Nourish your Body: breathe - move - relax
Calm your Mind: sit in silence
Open your Heart: smile - give - love
Honor your Soul: heal - nurture - forgive
Expand your Spirit: remember

wishing you much peace...

Thank you for this - and for your comment from a couple of weeks ago at Archdruid's site. I've been fighting off panic for weeks as events unfold in the world more quickly than I had been prepared for. Every morning this week I've awakened thinking "I have to meditate" but I've been unable to calm my mind. I'll be visiting your site often for reminders to breathe, to move, to smile, to give, to love. Indeed, it's the best preparation for whatever lies ahead.
