Above all other voices, listen to your heart. Trust this internal guidance system to lead you up the right path. The more you tune in to the frequency of your inner voice, the more easily it can communicate with you, and the happier you will be.
When I listen to my heart, I remember that love is the answer and it is the way out of suffering.
Sometimes, you need to take a step back and remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be. It’s easy to let the noise of the world silence the whispers of the heart, but you cannot live a life that feels like your own if you avoid the truth of who you are and negate the potential of who you can be.
“It’s impossible” said pride.
“It’s risky” said experience.
“It’s pointless” said reason.
“Give it a try” whispered the heart.
Your instincts are messages from your soul, the inner part of you that knows you are whole and all is well. When you listen to your heart, you’re paying attention to these signals and staying on course with what’s of the highest good for the evolution of your consciousness.
All you need is already within, but it’s hard to see that or even believe it when you’re drowning in the noise of the ego and its wishes (i.e. misery, suffering). The ego would have you believe you’re small, separate, and wrong; your heart would have you see the truth, which is none of those things.
Ego is the unconscious; your heart is the conscious.
If you ever feel lost, off-course, or doubtful, let these quotes be a reminder for you to listen to your heart and focus on the gentle reassurance within that you are more than your doubts, because joy is at your core.
