Seeking HEART CONNECTIONS </b>S

to innate joy and wisdom..

A beating heart means you have life, a miracle of muscle and vessel, holding our life force, our blood and somehow miraculously delivering life-giving oxygen to our cells with each pump. A heart is a symbol in itself of love, affection, and/or romantic connection. There are many many kinds of love…

When we talk of “heart connection” we usually mean a deep and caring, often healing connection between two beings, usually on a platonic level. Heart connection can be with a group, a country, a world, the earth, or your dog.

Two soft fists meeting at the center of the chest, this is a universal symbol of “heart”, and also “good”. “Connection” is intuitive: one arm reaches forward and one back, hands vertical with fingers together, reaching in an alignment with the body facing forward.

Reaching forward to the future, and touching back to the past, we connect ourselves, our hearts, to a joy that is innate, our birthright, our attachment to mother earth, deep enduring joy. And this is informed with wisdom. And wisdom, as the prayer goes.

Some may define this as a connection to God, or a higher power, or in this prayer, to the higher power in all of us, connections.

First we need to start with ourselves, finding our own heart connection to our own innate joy and wisdom. This may require finding the right relationships in order for us to thrive, as ourselves, to be in a supported position, so that we can support others.

Making a Stand for Peace, can be uncomfortable, it can be inconvenient, and disruptive to our lives as they’ve been, and disruptive to those around us, family and friends. It requires communicating the truth of your own experience, to others, taking responsibility for that experience, your feelings, and communicating without blaming others for how you feel or are. Then it requires you to request what you need in a way that allows people to make a choice out of their own free will, not being guilt tripped or held hostage. It requires you to allow them to say no to your request, and to listen to their needs and feelings in the situation, as well. Also, allow them to agree to your request, if that’s what they do. And you must be ready to take action as well, depending on your own innate joy and wisdom. can be uncomfortable, it can be inconvenient, and disruptive to our lives as they’ve been, and disruptive to those around us, family and friends.

Thereby all can be triumphant.

My little dog Darby is full of heart in his way with me and everyone he meets. He is authentically adorable and adoring. In this time of coronavirus quarantine, I listen to him and his needs, and I make requests based on mine. Mostly, he is able to do as I request, and sometimes he is not. I don’t waste time trying to cajole or persuade, I deal with the consequences as they happen, quickly and privately to myself. I trust that he is doing the best he can, and I love him just the way he is. I let him know that I’d like it if next time, he do differently. That’s the best we can do together, and it’s very good. I am grateful for my quarantine teammate, and all the wonderful times we have together.
