If you open your heart, you can find a flow to your day. This flow or stream of consciousness emanates from your spirit inside of you. There is nothing more natural. But bring in the current world. There some things in our current way of life that are far from natural. Look around; there are many things in our current way of life that are insane.
So what happens when you meditate, pray, whatever else you do to get in touch with the flow that emanates from your soul- and then walk out into the insane world? You flow upstream. You find the flow of your day which allows things to unfold and fall into place for you. But as you look around you realize that you are moving in the opposite direction of the people around you. It feels so right- but so different.
And then to make matters worse, people tell you that you are insane. And from their point of reference- you are. So the choice is which reality do you choose- the one from your heart or the one from the outside world? People will try to talk you into going in their direction. They want you to validate the insane world for them. But your heart wants you to follow it. You have to choose.
As it becomes OK to be different, you can happily head in the opposite direction of most everyone else. You simply smile and say thanks for asking, but I am going over there. They will not understand.
But every now and then, someone may follow you. Where you are going resonates with their heart. And then you notice that others you meet are moving in a similar direction. Soon other people are flowing upstream with you. You have found your people.
And… you stayed true to your heart.
