We can never escape love or the desire for love.
We can temporarily turn our backs on it. But eventually it will become so strong that we can’t ignore it.
In fact, most things we do in our lives, we do to get love or give love. Maybe not on the surface. But this is a underlying desire for all human beings. We all want to be accepted and loved on some level.
Truly, what is more important than love? A person can have all the money in the world, but no love and be miserable. But if a person is deeply and unconditionally loved abundantly, they can be very happy even with very little money.
I’m not pitting money and love against each other. Both play important roles in our lives. However, we already acknowledge the importance of money. Many of us spend all of our time and energy working for the money to support ourselves. We can easily neglect our loved ones and the things and experiences we love for the sake of money. However, we need to realize love is too important to neglect and ignore.
When we are open and receptive, we realize love is everywhere. As Rumi reminds us, it’s all around us.
When you ignore it, it will come after you. It will pursue you and remind you of it’s power. Just like breathing and eating, loving is a necessity to life.
“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.” ~ Rumi
How often do you express what’s in your heart?
I hope your answer is every day. But far too often, we neglect our hearts. We only pay attention to what needs to be done right now. We rarely take the time to examine our hearts and do just what we desire.
When I was a massage therapist, I could always tell by how stressed out a person was whether they were listening to their hearts. Our hearts will tell us how to relieve stress and return to a state of joy. However, we often wave our hands at our hearts and complain, “Not now. I don’t have time.”
If you don’t have time to listen to and obey your heart, you will never have enough time.
Don’t forget what you’ve been gifted with is a life. Don’t spend all your time trying to complete some never ending to do list and forget to actually take time to live and enjoy your life.
This is what the heart teaches us. Take the time to listen. Your heart will guide you toward the most important work you were put on this planet to do. Go in the direction of passion and joy. Don’t underrate the value of these things in your life.
