"When the heart speaks, the mind finds it indicent to object"
- Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
I am becoming more and more aware that I am choosing to live my life with a cheerful, joyful and freedom-loving heart; that I want to choose to think from my heart, not from my mind, however difficult this transition might be at times (most of the time..hahaha!)... I see the mind as a conduit of the soul, and I believe the heart gets the inspiration from the soul.. The knowing that we all experience from time to time, or the intuition as most of us call it, are an overwhelming feeling that can only come from the depth of our being and from every cell in our body... Haven't we all experienced that when our decision-making comes from our heart (the power house, the core of our being), the outcome is always so magical, so perfect.. More that ever before so many people are making drastic changes in their lives, professionally and personally that perhaps makes no sense for many people who look at it from the mind point of view.. Last week, for instance, I attended a conference in London on 'Raw Food' (another subject for another day!!!) and one of the speakers who for many years had a very lucrative job in the famous Silicon Valley, decided to leave it and to become a lecurer on something that his heart told him it was the best for him.., (and indeed it was!!)..
Like you, I so many times wonder, what give the people the courage to make drastic changes in their lifes? The answer I always get is the same: the courage can only come from the heart.. Certainly for me, I find thinking from my mind very fragmentated, but whenever I manage to think from my heart, I find it very spiritual, very holistic, a feeling I must always trust, specially now days when my personal life is about to crumble...
Despite my trying to excercise the thinking from the heart, I find extremely difficult to stop my mind and therefore I trust that an opend heart and an open mind will yield the best results.. what do you think?
and here are some videos on the making of the tag (ipad on one hand and paint on the other, very difficult !!!)..
Yes, those brown bits I tried to glue are dry leaves I picked up from the park yesterday while playing and running with my son.. The ground was covered in leaves, those beautiful yellows, oranges, reds and brown colours.. The beautiful colours of autum I love... Si, el otoño está a la vuelta de la equina..
It was 1.30am last night (London time), and since there was no planning what so ever in the making of this tag, I was too tired and I'd lost the momentum... So, I just couldn't finalise it, so sorry.. I will continue tonight..
Thank you for your patience, I hope is worth it..
