Heart pushes you to feel and be:
a human being


We all have some sort of insecurity.  We may not want to feel our insecurity and therefore replace feeling our insecurity with doing or owning things.  We may buy into beliefs such that with enough knowledge, degrees, status, money, friends, and things our insecurities will go away.  This is a never ending game, since “enough” of something today may not be sufficient tomorrow; as our circumstances change, so do our needs.

 

You may know people whose doing and having solution has not resolved their insecurity.  Do you know anyone who is an expert on a subject and that expertise has not touched their own life?  Do you know of any healers who have not healed their own pains and hurts?  Do you know of any intimacy experts who are not intimate with anybody?

 

Our insecurities will not transform unless we experience and feel them.  Our mental solution to our insecurity is based on the fear of feeling our insecurity (not pleasant).   A needle to numb us at the dentist chair may sting for a only second, however, we may think about it days before and suffer more than 1000 mental needles by the time we reach the dentist chair, which is all about resisting the feel of  the needle’s sting.  Likewise, when we feel our insecurity, its hold on us will diminish and we may realize that doing and/or getting something is an ineffective way of feeling secure. 

 

 

Inner Healing

 

Have you met the man who had a huge fortune

and always felt poor?

 

Have you met the man who could recite all the names of God

and never felt God in his heart?

 

Have you met the man who has read all the books on love

and never allowed love in his life?

 

Have you met the man who gave wonderful lectures on world peace

and never felt his peace within?

 

Have you met the man who fed the hungry

and never felt and fed his own hunger?

 

What is value of a great book

if it cannot be internalized?

 

Path of heart is different from that of mind.

 

Mind pushes you to think, verbalize and do:

a human doing.

 

Heart pushes you to feel and be:

a human being.

 

Take off the mask!

 

Use the knowledge of your heart.

It never lies to you.

 

Feel, be alive and conscious

through your heart’s path.
