A Quest for the Heart

Yesterday I was talking to a friend about some things that I have been feeling as of late and I was reminded about something I was told during a 1 on 1 session with an old friend.  He told me that He wanted to see me express my heart more.

You see if I would compare myself to a Wizard of Oz character, it would be the cowardly Lion. Not so much because he was a coward, but because he lacked heart. And no, I’m not saying I’m heartless or anything like that, but at times I do feel like the expression of it has been suppressed. To delve into the heart can be scary, because you never know what you’re going to find. It’s a mess sometimes, and that’s fine. I’ve grown accustomed to being very cerebral in life… and I feel like I keep hitting walls because of that. I don’t feel like explaining that but I’ll say this. Logic is very rigid in the way it functions, but we are not meant to live off of logic. The heart, on the other hand, is rooted in Life. And life in no way shape or form is rigid. Life is fluid, life is malleable, life is free, life is interactive, life will bend in the midst of a storm and persist, life always is. Logic/reason is a concrete wall. It may keep you from adversity for a while, but a bit too much tension and it will break. Believe me, you won’t be in a good place when that happens.

Why am I saying all this? Because it’s time to embrace my Heart. It will be a journey. But life is a journey. Life is growth. Life is ever expanding beauty. It’s time to let go of rigid notions of destinations and things of that nature. It’s time to embrace the journey, to embrace the quest of the Heart.
