We all know that our human God-given mind is a very important and unique dignitary in the great palace that we call our human incarnation. But in Bhakti we discover that the mind, sometimes agitated and sometimes tranquil, is but a simple servant to the ever blessed Queen – our heart….
Today, let’s let our minds rest a bit and let our hearts take the lead. Feel things more than think them. And stretch a bit outside of our comfort zones in order to express kindness and caring to another person.
The day may be difficult, or it maybe blissful, either way is fine. If possible, express your emotions through a song in the evening. If sad feelings have come up, sing them, if you feel great joy, please sing that. Give it a try.
