In the quietude of early morning, I can hear a soft voice that says, express your truth, speak up even when your voice quivers, give entirely of yourself, and get lost in the service of others.
And yet... Observing within myself, I give with the expectation of getting. I lied for the sake of avoiding arguments. I expected others to serve me most of the time.
My heart is longing to live with congruency, where my heart, mind, and action are in alignment, and yet sometimes, my mind wants one thing, and the heart desires another. The conflict between the two become the norm of my daily life.
Amidst the conflict, I ask myself, what does my heart honestly want? The heart speaks, I want to express myself fully; I want to give and expect nothing in return. I want to speak my truth, even when my voice trembles. I want a peaceful, loving, and joyful existence. Through this, I say to myself. I am now speaking my truth. I am now expressing myself fully. I am a giver. From now on, wherever I go. I will create a peaceful, loving, and joyful world within and without.
What do you do when you experience conflict between the heart and the mind? I'm curious to know. Please share below
Peace + Love = Joy
