With the empowerment that begins with Heart Alignment, we are able to pursue Heart Direction, a sense of purpose and passion that arises from authenticity rather than the conditioning of our culture.
As our identity and sense of security is greatly influenced by family values and social pressure, we too often make choices related to our life direction based on ego satisfaction, social acceptance, and/or financial considerations. Passion and creativity is often ignored, or a secondary consideration at best.
As a young man, I decided I could live for weekends and retirement or follow the direction of my heart. With little understanding of what that meant or where that might lead, I pursued evolving interests in creative and healthy home building, holistic sustainability, spirituality, emotional healing, conscious relationships and community building.
I have looked at major life events and new decades as a crossroads, and an opportunity to evaluate where I have been and where I want to head. Along the way, I have learned some of the keys to living from the heart, aligned with authenticity and the “calling” that comes out or the pain and joy of life.
The satisfaction of heart direction involves risk and uncertainty, a willingness to find and go with the flow of life. It involves pursuing the wisdom of intuition and clarifying intention. It requires growing awareness of the filters and blocks that hold us back. It also requires evolving awareness of our strengths, gifts, needs, and longings.
Heart direction starts with heart alignment, a deepening sense of “why”, and pursuing opportunity that comes from an evolving sense of vision and mission. It continues toward connection, as we consider the gift and need for others.
