I have much to write, yet there are no complete sentences. I have started this post three times in the last 1 minute, nothing seemed perfect to give to you...
What is true for you right now? If you were to sit still for one minute what would be going on for you? After perhaps ten minutes when maybe you released from you head and traveled to your heart, what then are you sitting with?
Talking from you mind/thoughts rather than from your heart. This has been a huge issue for me lately. I watched a seemingly boring video the other day but could not take myself away from it, for 48 minutes I stayed hooked on what these two men were saying, they were speaking from the heart and I could not stray away from such openness. Today I started to watch a video on a topic I am very interested in but after 1 minute I walked away from it, I could not feel this persons words, it was their mind talking and my heart was not connected.
In western society we are taught to speak from our heads, gather the information make a pointed presentation and speak. Have you ever been to a talk where you can hear words but you feel no connection? Now, have you been to a talk where you feel the speakers energy, you believe every word they are saying, you feel every syllabel form every word that vibrates in your core? Have you yourself found yourself talking and realized your not even connected to what your saying? I am sure you have experienced the other half of that as well, when you are sharing a story or idea and its as if your have lost control and something higher is speaking through you?
I can always tell when a person is talking to me from their heart place, how? I feel them, If their coming at me from the habit of their mind I cannot feel them, there are no emotions to accompany their words. Speaking from the mind is great if your intention is to show how intelligent you are and quick witted, but that does nobody any good not even yourself because in the long run you will find emptiness.
Speaking from the heart you will only find a greater fullfillment. Speaking from the heart is simply speaking the truth, your truth. Speaking from the heart is not to outsmart, outplay, out maniplilate, or seek gain its simply wants to connect and share. Speaking from the heart does not mean the things you have to say others will like, but it doesn't matter its the truth and in the end whether the people around you or even you see it everyone gains.
Speaking from the heart is not the same as emotionally reacting so please don't confuse the two they are very different. A highly emotional re active person would benefit from meditation and in return find that most of those re actions come from the habit of their mind, not the heart.
In my own experience when I try and use all the knowledge in my confided brain to get my point across, it never works. First I find myself getting confused by the habits I've created over the years and therefore the lack of clarity in making my point is lost. In that also if I'm on my game and the words are coming quick and their "on point" I end up hurting or saying things that I don't even mean, leaving me with an emptiness. When I speak from the heart I gain so much, no matter what that truth is for me, nothing can harm me, I am in my truth I am in my higher self and I find I get a deeper connection with whoever is on the other side of my words. The heart never lies only the mind does. Speak from the heart and you will a neverending sense of peace and happiness. If you find that your heart is up against someone else's mind, stay with your heart, see how people respond to you, perhaps they will let you see their heart as well and what a gift to give.
If you found this triggering, I challenge you to read it again and when you come to a place that triggers you ask yourself "why does this trigger/upset me?" the first response will most likely be a habit from the mind, so go further down breathe into your heart and see what you find there ,now ask yourself again.
