Heart’s Desire

Letting go leads to your most authentic life.

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


Jeremiah 17:5

Thus says the LORD: Cursed is the man who trusts in human beings, who makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the LORD.


Life is not about trying to please others.

It’s about trying to please your inner-most-self…your soul…or your true self.

That can only happen by following your heart.

That’s where God has planted your deepest desires.

It’s the place where your true self springs forth.

You are a unique manifestation of the Divine.

How will you express that divinity in the world?

Trying to satisfy all the yearnings of your body will not bring you deep happiness.

Sure…those pleasures can be a beautiful part of the human experience…but basing your life’s purpose on them will lead to emptiness.

What is your heart’s desire?

To know, it will take a lot of letting go…a lot of practice at setting aside thoughts and physical desires…so that your true self can emerge.

A meditative or contemplative practice will help immensely.

Follow your deepest soul yearnings…and if you aren’t sure what they are…start by simply following your interests.

Allow life to unfold…and perhaps you will one day live into the answer you’ve been yearning for.
