|The Mystery within...|
From “God Never Hurries:”
…my heart, mind, body and soul were consumed in what the day might hold. But I was most aware of my soul. It seemed to be telling me, “Love is courage talking, not long-suffering silence.”
I helped my mother bathe. I felt my touch asking for her forgiveness. I saw it in her eyes. My heart wanted to stay. My head said, “Go”; my back said “Hurry”; my soul said; “Leave.”
During those years of intense learning, as I struggled with my aging parents needs and my own self-care, I began experiencing my mind, heart, body and soul as distinct parts working together on my behalf. I ached for naturalness and just wanted to blend into the natural world where everything is connected and works to support the whole. There a deer first led me to know curiosity was the way to go; and finally another deer showed me others do lay down their life in order for me to grow. Thunder storms, snow falls, sunrises, sunsets, frogs, fox, herons, hummingbirds, black birds, sea gulls, raccoon, and more all came with messages from which I learned.
So I wasn’t surprised when I heard at Jean Watson’s Caritas Caring Science workshop that there is current science at Heart Math Research studying how the physical heart is more than just a pump but communicates with the brain. In my experience I would add the body and soul are also in cahoots along with the natural world.
What if we all became aware of the connections within ourselves, between each other, and the natural world?
