Jonathan Cainer reminded me yesterday of a quote attributed to the great poet Kahil Gibran: "Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking."
Explain yourself Jonathan. How can this be true?
"Our minds can take us anywhere, can't they? Our thoughts can invent and imagine any situation. They can even lead us into a convincing deep experience. The fact is though, that Gibran is right -- thoughts cannot conjure true faith that only ever comes from the heart. And the heart can only ever be heard when the head is silent."
Good old Jonathan was absolutely correct in his explanation. We can learn a lot by listening to our hearts.
It works for me. I have detoured a lot of trouble in my life by listening to the vital organ that beats within my chest.
Maybe it's been a while, but listen to yours today!
