Your heart is sacred land. Don't let just anything enter it. Guard it with your life.--Yasmin Mogahed
What if we could remember every second just how sacred our hearts truly are. If we did, we would not give in to the negative thoughts and reactions that enter our hearts even for a moment. Unfortunately, most of us struggle with this as a part of our spiritual journey. We grow stronger, but it is a difficult path towards spiritual maturity and higher consciousness. Perhaps it is because we fail to be gentle with ourselves when we realize that once again we have allowed tarnished thoughts to get to our very hearts. And, yet, until we instinctually learn how to guard our hearts with our thoughts, mind, and very life, we will to miss the mark of grasping the significance of letting those things that are harmful to our hearts, our minds, and our spirits continue to flow to the most sacred of place in our souls. It is a tender journey, filled with stops and starts, but we learn as we go just how important the journey is. May it be so. Namaste
