A Road From My Soul
“There is a road from my Soul to my Heart. My Heart stays awake, keeps this road open.”
–Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi, translation by Dr. Nevit O. Ergin
There is so much coming at us right now. Spiritual leaders have pointed to the awareness that the mind can’t always handle rapid change and being bombarded by new information for years. The wisdom offered by Rumi reminds me of my source of calm and moments of clarity.
If I set my intention to keep the road between my soul and my heart open, I can trust I will receive the wisdom I need when I need it. Of course that assumes I make time to feed my soul, open my heart, and listen for the wisdom I need.
What helps you create and maintain an open road between your soul and your heart? Closing my eyes, putting my hand on my heart, and pausing to consciously breathe deeply helps me. Right now it feels like a lifeline and I can’t do it often enough.
May the road between your soul and your heart be open and may you heed the wisdom and grace that travels along it.
The Untroubled Quietude
Living with Discernment
A prayer of recollection allows us to bring eyes to see and ears to hear to the dailiness of our lives. By taking the time to ‘collect’ all of the bits and pieces of our day, we receive what we have been given.”
