The clenched fist is strong, but it can hold only a small amount. The open palm appears soft, but it can hold a great deal.
The narrow mind appears focused and intent. The open mind expands with new knowledge and experience.
The closed heart appears strong and stoic. The open heart grows from the touch of the hearts of others.
The Ancient Ones taught that those who are the strongest are those who are open of heart and mind … those who guard their words carefully … those who act with care rather than clenching a fist.
They also taught that openness, softness … watchfulness … comes only to those who are truly strong. To those who have studied long, and learned well … who are clear and strong in their personal truth.
The truly strong are those who choose gentleness — who understand that gentleness is not weakness.
As you learn, you begin to know your own truth. You begin to build the confidence of your heart’s strength … your soul’s openness.
Consider this week’s quote:
Seeing things through others’ eyes gives a gentling of the heart. Healing begins within oneself and spreads to others. The result raises the vibration of the entire world.
Consider the Journey of your life — how you release your thoughts … your words … your actions. Open your mind, your heart, your spirit. Receive the grace that is already yours.
If you would like to explore your own Journey … the teachings that are uniquely yours in how you live your life … consider the Journey: 30-day Guided Experience.
Have you recently completed it? Have you ‘taken’ the Journey previously? That’s all right … your ownJourney is part of the Infinite Universe of awareness. Whether you experience it for the first time, or review what you have already discovered, you will see with new eyes … hear with new ears … experience with new heart.
You come to know your own truth by exploring your heart … your soul.
You are a gift to the world!
Live on Purpose … Change the World!
