Listen to your heart

Author: Rifka Bose /

Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights…

Kahlil Gibran said that, and he was right. Listen, therefore, to your heart. Cultivate the ability to do this. Practice it. Produce it. Perfect it.

It is not that difficult. Just be quiet with yourself. And for heaven's sake, stop listening to your mind. You will not find the truth there. You may find the answer, but it will not be the truth unless it coincides with the answer in your heart.

You think there is more to know about life than this, but there is not. Your heart holds the key. Your heart holds the wisdom. Your heart holds the future. Your mind knows nothing but the past. It imagines the future will be just like yesterday, so it makes it decisions based on that. Only your heart can see beyond memory's horizon.

This sounds quite easy but is one of the toughest things to do. The constant conflict between the heart and mind has been one of my greatest concerns, but I know if I keep at it, I will come through and be able to hear that little voice, loud and clear.
