Return to the Heart

To attend to and follow the heart has not always been an easy task for me.There have been many influences in life that serve to interfere with and compromise that; opinions, definitions, concepts amd diversions in life that take me away from a more authentic orientation to self and life. That I might be able to return to a connection to the heart when I am lost is my ongoing hope.
One of Victor Frankls most relevent insights from his book “Man’s Search For Meaning” is the realization that forces beyond ones control can take away everything one possesses except for one thing. That is the freedom to choose how you respond to the situation. For myself a return  to the heart is always an option and it is helpful to remind myself, as Rodney Smith suggests that “the hearts love is found by releasing all that is not love”.i
