SHINE … By the Spirit™ with Tonya M. Evans
Open Your Heart, Share Your Love
October 23, 2012
Right now, and in every now-moment, you are either closing or opening. You are either stressfully waiting for something – more money, security, affection – or you are living from your deep heart, opening as the entire moment, and giving what you most deeply desire to give, without waiting.” ~ David Deida ~
When it is all said and done, our life path can be reduced to, and defined by, an essential choice: to live with an open heart filled with expansive, loving energy or to live with a closed heart filled with constricting, limiting energy.
The choice can either be unconscious and reactive or conscious and responsive. But rest assured, we are constantly making the choice. We are always either living with an open heart or closed heart because there is no in between.
Open-hearted living focuses on the process of our surrender to the journey itself without focusing on ,or trying to control, the outcome. So much of life is actually out of our control and doesn’t require or desire our input. For example, the sun hasn’t asked me what time to rise recently and no tree has consulted me about the color its leaves should change to this fall.
But everyday my heart asks me to be a more full, whole, fearless and authentic expression of my divinity. Everyday my heart says it wants to shine through me. My head, of course, has other ideas. It wants safety, security, control and ego strokes early and often. And all of that open-heartedness sounds so very crazy to my decidedly rational mind.
Thankfully, I’ve learned as I’ve matured and evolved spiritually that its my heart that contains all of my divinely inspired desires and it alone can lead to my fullest expression of God’s Love. So today I encourage you to live with an open heart. Open-hearted living allows Love to flow freely … out and in, like the ebb and flow of life.
