Just give me a reason
Just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It’s in the stars
It’s been written in the scars on our hearts
That we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
I connect to many things consciously without being mindful of doing so. In a way I always have. I’ve been hearing this song, without being mindful of the words being said, but this song would move me every time. So I finally played the video on demand, literally minutes ago, and I listened to the words and I just wanted to share this video with everyone. I mean the lyrics speak very well for themselves at what goes on in many relationships. We’re so quick to jump the gun at times when the relationship isn’t BROKEN it’s simply BENT. Our mind begins to go down this path of negativity and continues to thrive on issues we are actually manifesting from others opinions, past relationships, insecurities, fear, and so on without realizing it. Let’s be honest, how many of us have had a dream about our significant other that wasn’t so good? The dream feels so real that we allow the emotion of that dream to resonate within us to the point that it truly affects our reality/attitude/perception. This is the way I look at it. Our minds play tricks on us! Yes people, our very own mind’s have the capability of being messy at times. Think about it…What good is the mind if it doesn’t have a problem to solve? No! Really take your time and think about what I just said. What use would our minds be to us if we didn’t second guess things, if we didn’t plan, if we didn’t worry…
Kute said it best,
“How many times have you known something deep inside but did not trust it? Instead you listened to your head rather than the deeper knowing of your heart. Oftentimes the head and the heart are not in harmony, and when you listen to only the head, it leads to a great source of confusion. One minute the head tells you one thing, then a few minutes later it tells you something else, and before you know it you end up more confused than when you began.
The heart has an intelligence and knows things that the head cannot know – it has a knowing beyond logic. The heart is beyond mere emotion, but rooted in deep wisdom. There are things that you know deep down. I often hear people say, “Kute, I know what I need to do… the truth is that I am afraid. What should I do?”
Sometimes we are afraid to OWN our inner-knowing, so we create the false sense of confusion for ourselves. Confusion is a game we play with ourselves to keep ourselves stuck where we are. The more you remain confused, the less you need to make a choice and take action. Confusion keeps you playing small. It can be scary to get clear and own the fact that underneath the fear and confusion, you DO indeed know what to do. As you own your knowing, there are no more excuses – only the courageous responsibility to follow your truth.
When you allow yourself to listen to your heart, it will guide you on the right path. Your heart has an intelligence and wisdom – even though it might not always be easy, and sometimes rather challenging, there is usually a deeper sense of peace that comes with following your true heart’s knowing.
Deep peace is living your deepest truth, rather than out of the confines of your fear.
The stress, anxiety, craziness we feel often happens because we are stuck in our heads, when in reality everything inside of us is saying something else. There is often a gap between what the head says and the heart says. The degree to which you follow only the head is the degree to which you will suffer.
To go against your true heart’s knowing is to betray yourself, and to betray yourself only leads to pain.
It is not worth it.
The head has its place, but it must serve the guidance and direction of your heart. So first feel your heart, and be 100% honest about what you know. Even if you are not ready to do anything about it right now, simply being honest about what your heart tells you is the first step.
Living with your head running the show often leads to a safe life, where you compromise who you are, living what you think you are supposed to.
Living in harmony with the head AND the heart will allow you to thrive. Tune into the heart, honor its knowing and guidance, and then use the head to assist in the fulfillment of your heart’s authentic direction.”
Follow your heart, your mind is simply the guide to get you where your heart wants to go!
