The heart in service to Spirit; the mind in service to the heart. This is the order of reverence in which we will operate as fully aligned beings.
The is the order we know when we are born into this life and one of the first things that gets ‘taught’ out of us. Our minds are praised as the most wonderous and powerful aspect of self. We’re rewarded for being smart and punished for being sensitive. In short order, the mind forgets it’s place, working hard to dominate the heart while we forget almost completely the power of Spirit.
We then spend many years wandering, lost, with no idea why or how to find our way home. We keep trying to sort it out, think it through, change our minds and make it all work, all the while not understanding that we’re attempting to make the un-natural, natural. We seek for answers in the outer world through accumulation, addictions and unworthy relationships to self and other.
Until one day, our mind grows weary of trying to do a job it isn’t designed for, our hearts’ calling becomes louder and Spirit can no longer be ignored. This is the moment of reckoning. It is often uncomfortable and destabilizing, resulting in unrest and pain.
And so we turn, finally, inward. Tentatively and with much hesitation, we seek our own hearts under the layers of lies, broken promises and confusion. We are rewarded, perhaps only briefly in the beginning, with a sliver of grace, opening the door to Spirit once again. This small taste of the glory is enough to elicit a single, sacred word:
That is all that is required to begin the journey home; to right the misunderstanding between mind, heart and Spirit and course correct. This is not an easy journey. No, not easy. It is, however, simple. All that is required, over and over, is your Yes.
Whispered, shouted, dragged through your clenched throat soaked with tears, Yes. Yes. And again, Yes.
