Love, the Heart, and Gifted

So as I try to decide how to write this post and complete the month’s topic, I sift through the various ways to approach the subject.  I have many different ideas – the connection between the heart and the mind; the passions and pursuit; the ideas and the emotions; the delights and tribulations; relationships with others /with self; introspection or connecting with the world around.  All of these are aspects of love, the heart and being gifted.

The fascination with many ideas and seeing various perspectives is at the heart of being gifted.   I love to look at something from many points of view or brainstorm to create multitude possibilities.  That is the working of the mind and yet brings the emotion of delight in the process.

Relationships are intense.   There is no doubt the heart is involved as a whole or in the resulting many pieces.  The caring for significant others, our children, our family and friends … and yes the kindred spirit of all humans is so much at the heart of being gifted.  We want to joyfully embrace those in our lives and reach out to all in the world.

Passions… what is there not to be passionate about?  Maybe that is an exaggeration.  We do each have individual passions.  However, living life, exploring the world, making new discoveries, playing in the sand, dancing on the roof tops, playing or listening to music…are all done with great passion and sincerity (which many find hard to believe).  These are all from our heart and done with love.

How often do you wear your heart on your sleeve?  How often are you frustrated because there is not the right emoticon or enough emoticons to express what you are feeling?  It does not matter whether it is delights or tribulations – it is a roller coaster ride with all the fireworks.  That is at the heart of being gifted.

Now dear mind, dear heart – still yourself.  Breathe, follow the breath, slowly in and out to the depths.  Time to go inside and be one with your heart and mind.  Feel  the calm.  Know the center.  Understand the multitude of your being.  Accept your love of being gifted.  Namaste.
