The heart is an unerring compass

Ahhh, the soothing voice of an old mentor–Emmanuel.  To find your path, listen to your heart.

The challenge, of course, is when it argues with the mind.  When the heart takes me on rocky paths, unknown terrain, scary dark roads, the mind screams about money, security, loneliness and loud stories about future illusionary problems.

But the heart is true–to love, to bliss, to goodness, birdsong, dawn, sweetness of seasons.

Sometimes the mind pretends it is the heart with clutching desires.  It is my path to sit and listen.  If it clutches, it is not truly the heart, but the mind desperate for attention.

Then I give it some love.
