heart-love-you-are-here-Favim.com-266077The Church is in trouble every time it instructs us to disregards our hearts or tell us that our hearts are evil/wicked. If Life is to be our religion and being alive is our spiritual practice; If the church is build by authentic relationships and if becoming and being all that I am is my calling then I ignore my heart and my hearts desires at my own peril.

Keep your heart with all vigilance,
for from it flow the springs of life. (Prov 4.23 NRSV)

The scriptures tell us that life comes out of our heart, out of our feelings, thoughts and committed actions. So if we want to live, to be alive, we must reclaim our hearts, our hearts desire and liberate them.

Or to quote The Tibethan Yogi Padmasambhava:

Look into the nature of desire and there is boundless light.

When I say that my deepest feelings are my guide I mean just that, it’s not the echoing chatter of my ego; All the justification and careful protection that I have built up so that we won’t get hurt, sideswiped or stepped on, but rather the deep longing and desire for connection within us. Our deepest feelings are intrinsically connected to our true self and our longing for being. To be connected to everyone and everything else and to be alive in god.
