The Heart

“Here is my secret,

A very simple secret.

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly,

What is essential is invisible to the eye.”

– The Little Prince written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The heart is so much more than a muscle. It is the tool of which we use to behold all that truly matters in this life.

It is with the heart that we see what can not be superficially seen.

It is with the heart that we feel what can not be physically touched.

It is with the heart that we can hear what is not able to be spoken when words fail.

It is with the heart that we know what can not be known through our very impressionable and ever-changing mind.

To get to the heart of a thing is to get to the truth. And that is what counts. More than that, it is what we DO with the truth that matters MOST.

May we make the way of the heart a way of life so that we can truly, deeply, freely live, love, and prosper.

Quote of the Day

“Step up. Break away from the status quo. Inspire others.”

I was scrolling through Instagram and happened upon a post from the American Ballet Theatre, I believe, and saw these words in one of their posts about being a professional dancer. These words stuck with me.

If we are to live our best lives and live our fullest and greatest potential, we need to step up. Challenges arise and we are tested. Our will, hearts, and desire are tested. We can rise to meet those challenges head on.

The status quo is a societal burden that has weighed humanity down for too long. Let us rid ourselves of this unnecessary obstacle. It serves no purpose, therefore it is useless. So let’s break free, be free, live our lives, love ourselves.

Inspiration comes in an infinite number of ways. And our want to be good to others begets the best, not only in ourselves, but others as well. Kindness and goodness go so far in this life. May we make these our way of life so that we may continue to grow, be, and do better.

Quote of the Day

“Master your internal force. Harness your internal force.” – Danny Rand, Iron Fist (Marvel)

*

It takes consistent, dedicated work, every day. It takes patience, calm, empathy, understanding, and love. It is a journey, every single moment, of every single day you are given. The more you practice the better you become, the better you become the greater your experience. Show up and do your best. Get living. 

The Key

“You attract what you are, not what you want.”
We each have to put in the effort to get what we want and need. Be all that you wish. Work on yourself, every day. There is no limit to what you can achieve when you act of love and with love.

Don’t forget that power. Never give up on it. We can get so caught up in whatever we’re going through that we forget what we’re capable of and what we can handle. You’ve got so much inside of you, everything you need to be your best, do your best, and succeed greatly. There is no doubting what you have, it’s there whether you recognize it or not. It’s just a matter of you putting it to use. You have everything you need, no matter how broken, helpless, lost, or hopeless you feel, you can make it through. You can overcome. You can.
