Look into your HEART...

Last night I was thinking about something. I don't know whether you think my thought is a big thing or just a small matter. I was thinking about how to really look into our heart. How do you feel certain about what your heart feels.

Last time I had a posting about "trusting your heart" (click here to view the post). There's a picture of a quote that says "The heart has reason that reason does not understand". Come to think about it again, I guess it's really true about what the sentence says. But the other thing that was running on my mind last night was this: Do you believe that if you look deeply into your heart, you'll find the answer you've been looking for? It sounds very cliche I know but what do you think about it? Can you really find the answer? How to make sure that you've found the right answer? But here's the thing, when you feel, you use the heart to feel. And when you're doing something, for sure you want to do things that makes your heart feels good, am I right? So I guess I've come to my conclusion (after thinking, thinking and thinking...and reading the article below) that we all must do what we feel is right. This really relates with your heart. Feel things using our heart. Feel = Heart. Do you get the idea? However, we must be able to train our self to look for the answers inside our self, inside our heart. Then, only we can decide what to do. Just follow your heart. It'll guide your way. Here's one article from DailyOM about finding life's answers...

Many of us seek the answers to life’s questions by looking outside of ourselves and trying to glean advice from the people around us. But as each of us is unique, with our own personal histories, our own sense of right and wrong, and our own way of experiencing the world that defines our realities, looking to others for our answers is only partially helpful. The answers to our personal questions can be most often found by looking within. When you realize that you always have access to the part of you that always knows what you need and is meant to act as your inner compass, you can stop searching outside of yourself. If you can learn to hear, trust, and embrace the wisdom that lives within you, you will be able to confidently navigate your life.

Trusting your inner wisdom may be awkward at first, particularly if you grew up around people who taught you to look to others for answers. We each have exclusive access to our inner knowing. All we have to do is remember how to listen. Remember to be patient as you relearn how to hear, receive, and follow your own guidance. If you are unsure about whether following your inner wisdom will prove reliable, you may want to think of a time when you did trust your own knowing and everything worked out. Recall how the answers came to you, how they felt in your body as you considered them, and what happened when you acted upon this guidance. Now, recall a time when you didn’t trust yourself and the results didn’t work out as you had hoped. Trusting your own guidance can help you avoid going against what you instinctively know is right for you.

When you second guess yourself and go against what you know to be your truth, you can easily go off course because you are no longer following your inner compass. By looking inside yourself for the answers to your life’s questions, you are consulting your best guide. Only you can know the how’s and why’s of your life. The answers that you seek can be found when you start answering your own questions.

When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
Kahlil Gibran
