In today’s wisdom reflection, I offer some of my favorite quotes about the heart as the window to our soul, our life’s authentic path. There’s wisdom in that heartbeat. Tune in, be wise!

Love & Light,

“When courageous enough to relax our soul open, the pace at which our mind thinks slows to the pace at which our heart feels, and, amazingly, together, they unfold the rhythm with which our eyes can see the miracle waiting in all that is ordinary.”

~ Mark Nepo ~

“We are not held back by the love we didn’t receive in the past, but by the love we’re not extending in the present.”

~ Marianne Williamson ~

“Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself, and yourself alone … Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good. If it doesn’t, it is of no use.”

~ Carlos Castaneda ~

“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”

~ Mahatma Gandhi ~

“If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.”

~ Pema Chödrön ~

Every experience is a blessing and a lesson!

Other words of wisdom today:

“To attain true inner freedom, you must be able to objectively watch your problems instead of being lost in them,” says Michael Singer, author of the essential spiritual guide The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself.

Mark Nepo’s September 14th entry teaches that regardless what experiences life offers us: “[w]e cannot stop the flow of experience of the need to take it in. Rather, all our efforts must go into learning the secret … of transforming what we go through [into wonder, joy and something that sustains us].” p. 303, The Book of Awakening

So today remember that experience is often the best teacher; the question is are you a willing student?
