August Subject of the Month ~ Open Heart : Open Mind

I have to say I am always amazed and in awe when a thought comes into my mind out of the blue and I cannot seem get rid of it.  I try and try to push it away waiting and wishing something better would come along and cross my mind to enlighten me.  I don’t get it!  I actually say to myself that I am sure there is something else…

With the subject of the month in mind the thought of open heart, open mind, had been almost haunting me as I thought that a new subject of the month must be found.  The words came to me but what is it telling me?  Must I open my heart and mind?  What I have learned is that what is to be revealed is not to be dug up or found but to simply allow what is present to reveal itself and to graciously accept it with an open heart and an open mind.  If we listen closely we may find what we are meant to hear or see very often shows up.  The more we try and try to push it away the more it comes back sometimes with a vengeance.  Really and truly this is such a beautiful gift as we have the space to yield into our divine brilliance . Realizing all we need to know is and has been here for us to receive with an open heart and an open mind.


“You don’t have to say anything. You don’t have to teach anything. You just have to be who you are: a bright flame shining in the darkness of despair, a shining example of a person able to cross bridges by opening your heart and mind.”

“Every time you connect, a little bit more clarity stays around the love, a little bit more space opens up around it. your mind becomes clearer. you experience expanded possibilities. You become a little more confident, a little more willing to connect with others, a little more willing to open up to other people, whether that means talking about your own stuff or listen to theirs. And as that happens a little miracle occurs: You’re giving, without expectation in return. Your very being becomes, consciously or not, an inspiration to others”

I could have not said this better.
