Look and Listen


Experience the present moment…or miss life.

(Listen to my song “Listen to Your Heart” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Psalm 37:4

Find your delight in the LORD who will give you your heart’s desire.


What is your “heart’s desire”?

I’m thinking lots of people can say what their minds’ desires are…but I’m not so sure about their hearts’.

This type of desire would seem to be one that would satisfy a person’s soul yearning.

I think we all have a deep yearning for something that will fill us and make us whole and complete.

Something is missing.

But most of the time, we try to satisfy these primal pangs with material things.

It works for a while…but not long.

Your heart’s desire can only be satisfied by God…or the Highest Form of Love.

To experience this…we must first relinquish our self-centered desires.

In the on-going-process of this letting-go…we begin to uncover our heart’s desire.

How to begin?

By being present to the Divine Presence.

Practice letting go of everything…and simply be.

Peace and contentment can be experienced…right now.

Delight in God’s Presence…and see what happens.
