“Create with purpose “
Today I want to invite you to live with the impulse of the heart over the reason. It means that in the moment that the mind takes charge of our lives, it’s challenging to leave space or time to explore anything else.
In this time in life, we live thinking under agendas, living over the clock, thinking at what time is our lunch, at what time should we go to bed, analyzing our lives and probably others, and the list can go further. Every time that the mind is in charge we leave the breath, the feelings and the wonder untouched. The meaning of creation becomes as an estrange thing to do or bear. If we are letting our thoughts to be the protagonist of our days, we are mainly doing but not being. The mind can be as powerful as we allow it to be.
And it’s very important to know that being under the control of the mind it’s not wrong. That’s the way most of the human kind has lived for some time. So, the muscle of the mind it’s more developed to live our lives under its decisions. And yes, of course, we need our mind, but mainly when we need to remember or when new ideas come to us. But now, if we are looking to live our lives with purpose, the heart is really the one that needs to get stronger. And it’s not complicated at all when we are willing to let it be.
First of all, we should know that it’s just a matter of practice, perseverance, and willingness. But also, a basic and effective way to live our lives with purpose is to be aware of the breath. It comes to be the Prana or Life force in our lives. This essential tool has the power of refocus our soul to what we love and to all the amazing things that we are able to create.
To start a simple practice just focus on your breath sensation in our chest and then when a thought arise, we need to be constantly acknowledging the thought as an estranger. Then observe what the thought wants to tell us and go back to your breath and your heart. This practice is a matter of repetition. Every time that the reason is taking control again, go back to take deep breaths for a few minutes. Later with time, this process will get easier and automatic. And you will find that there is more space opening up to explore new ideas, new ways to enjoy love, and new dreams to live. Isn’t that what we need and we are looking for? Personally I am, what about you? Are you willing to create the life that you always wanted? Stepping forward for change is always available for you. With one step at a time big transformations can and will happen.
The light I see in me, recognizes the light I see in you,
