Open the eye of your heart… And let the way that you walk be slow

Last night before going to bed, i stumbled upon a great writing that all i wanted to do is read it again and remember this morning. I also wanted to share it with everyone that cross my path because a lot of us have terribly become knotted in our own thoughts. Our feelings are distracted and divided into what have happened in our past and what we think will happen in the future… That we have become so drifted from our own being and our present moment:

“In these times of devastating ecological and social collapse, there are those of us who feel an urgency to attend to the world ‘before it’s too late.’ But the great paradox is that this very tendency to rush anxiously ahead is what got us into trouble in the first place.

In the Aboriginal way of dreaming, the past and future are embedded in the present. One’s embodiment is the ground into which all continuity flows, so the past can be just as influenced as the future by one’s way of going in the here and now.

Let the way that you walk be slow. Let us listen to the pleas of our surrounding thirsts. Let us acknowledge the forgetting which drifted us onto this terrifying precipice. Let the grief of it all make its encounter through your remembering. And may beauty come alive then, under our feet.”

I got this from the Facebook page Spiritual Ecology and their source is Toko-pa

It also reminded me of the saying by Rumi that goes: “if you feel distress within yourself while your eyes are unclosed, know that you have shut the eye of your heart. So open it. Recognize the craving of your heart, seeking the immeasurable light.”

So today, I will slow down, I will believe that in my heart there is a clear vision, I will believe that with the right amount of time, my life will take me to where I am meant to go to and what I mean to be doing. Meanwhile I will focus on today, I will cherish the gift of today with those who surround me. I will appreciate everything and count my blessings, I will listen to my callings as they come to me and I will walk closer everyday to what my heart longs for.
