Spiritual Coaching Vol 2 #46 Heart…

http://www.dennymeyer.me  Heart…

In the ancient world understanding, the heart was the very center of all life. So for someone to love with “all their heart” was to love with all of their being. Great poetry or prose reaches us at our center – it speaks truth to our inner most being. We long to have our heart moved – to feel something and not just to know it intellectually. Maya Angelou said, “The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.” Yes – yes – that is it – that is true. Your week will be so much more if you live it from the heart. Love with your heart, work with your heart, communicate with your heart, worship with your heart, serve with your heart, and with your heart grasp the love of God and share it.


Many people live with a quiet desperation, as Henry David Thoreau has said. Jesus said to “love God, love people, and love yourself with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.” How can we do that? Even if we can for a moment, how could we ever sustain it? That is assuming your draw on your own natural ability to search your heart. God wants to fill your heart so that you will never be empty – you will travel from strength to strength. A lot of people hear that it is Monday and groan about the week ahead. Don’t do it. Embrace the opportunities or change it. You are not required to suffer unless you find yourself a part of a persecuted enslaved population somewhere. Then it is our corporate duty to help you find your freedom and to follow your heart. Sadly many do not believe that they have a heart to follow. They think they have responsibilities, duties, obligations, and expectations that others impose on them. You are free! Free to follow your heart. Free to love God and love people with all of your heart. Free to live from the center of your being – from the inside out and not the outside in. So live with all your heart.

Be Well.
