Journey to the Heart: Be Present for Yourself
In the book Journey to the Heart, today's lesson is about learning to be present for yourself. Being fully present for your thoughts and emotions. To let your body and heart lead you on each step of your journey. Survival is no longer enough as it does not meet the needs of your heart and your soul. Live fully and joyfully. To do that, you must be present for yourself.
It's important to be fully present for others too. Be present for their emotions and the words they have to say to you. There is no need to be consumed by the needs of others, or become trapped in the workings of their lives. If you are present for yourself, you'll know how much presence to give others.
Be present for life, the chirping birds, the star-lit skies, blooming flowers and the morning sun. Notice the earth beneath your feet. Be present for all the magic and mysteries of the universe. But most of all be present for yourself. Then your presence for others and life will naturally follow.
