Hi there, how are you all doing? Clark here, the author for this site. Below, we are going to discuss what is the wisdom of the heart. Listen to your heart. What is your heart telling you? Follow your heart. These are just some of the phrases I hear a lot and here I would like to take you on an exploration of these phrases and their deeper meanings.
What Your Heart Knows
The wisdom of the heart to me is the path that would lead to joy. Your heart knows the path that would make you happiest, that would bring you the most success, that you have passion for, that you would love to walk on. And it is something that brings you joy starting from now. Not in a year’s time. Not when you’ve gotten that boy or girl. Not when you get married. Now, now, now, now, now. So listen to it. It usually lets itself be known to me as a sudden insight or realization coupled with a wonderfully elated feeling. An “Ah, so that’s why I did that! That’s what all this is about!”
We are all connected to each other. Have you heard that one before? The reason is because we are all said to be extensions of the same source. That for some reason, that source was differentiated into different living beings, different planets, different physical objects, and one day all this would be destroyed and we would all become one again.
Have you heard of the Akashic records? According to Wikipedia, “In theosophy and anthroposophy, the Akashic records is a compendium of all universal events, thoughts, words, emotions, and intent ever to have occurred in the past, present, or future in terms of all entities and life forms, not just human.” If it does exist, then it only lends credibility to the idea that we are all connected in some way. And it also goes some way towards explaining where the wisdom of the heart comes from. If there is a source of all knowledge and we are connected to it, don’t you think whatever it tells you to do is going to be pretty darn powerful?
How Do We Tap Into Our Heart’s Wisdom?
Is it possible to listen to our heart all the time? Yes, if we can maintain a certain state of being. The state of allowing. The state of gratitude and appreciation, that’s why all the self-help gurus always go on about how being grateful will get us what we want. Also, the state of love. The state of trusting.
And how do you know when you are doing it? When are you living according to your heart’s wisdom? By the degree of joy that you feel. Or the degree of love or peace. When one is in that state, it is quite difficult to differentiate between all the emotions, nor do you want to waste time or confuse yourself by trying to label them. Suffice to say, you would feel really good.
When you are feeling good, that’s when you know your heart is guiding you towards the life that befits you. And when you are hating, or unsure, or pessimistic, or even bored, that’s when you know you’re not listening to your heart.
