Our hearts are imprisoned for just one reason: The only language they can speak is truth. Unlike the mind, which can be persuaded to accept the most bizarre ideas (“Look, it’s the Hale-Bopp comet! Time to kill yourself!), your heart tells it like it is, without bothering to be tactful or socially appropriate. Free hearts rock boats, break rules, do things that disrupt the system—whether that system is a dysfunctional family, a bloated bureaucracy, or the whole wide world. –Martha Beck
I’ve come to realize one of the main reasons for my anxiety is the conflict between my mind and heart.
I never knew until recently the true difference in the two life energy sources, I just accepted the fact that my mind was telling me what my heart was saying.
There is a shift now where I am listening to my heart more and more and ignoring my mind.
My brain is composed of past hurts, failures, society expectations, negative thoughts, memories: although there is a ton of positive stuff, too.
It’s simply time to hear my heart out first and tune out the ever rampant not-so-truthful brain.
Unfortunately, my heart is quiet. I’m ready to listen but it is silenced. That is because I have imprisoned my heart for so long. I’ve told it to hush! I’ve tried to rationalize against my heart.
I’m opening up the communication slowly and will listen to every tiny whisper.
