HEART SPACE ALERT
Look beyond the words of others; discover what is in their heart.
I was caught off guard by Gus whose company I have enjoyed for years. We were at a party when he suddenly started spewing ridicule as he dismissed a well-known national leader. I was astounded because his words did not reflect the compassionate and generous hearted person I knew Gus to be.
How would I choose to respond and to view him?
In that moment I chose to steer the conversation back to the original topic which had never included any mention of the leader being slammed. In my sadness at this unexplained tirade I chose to remember the generous heart of Gus as I wondered what inner pain or anger had triggered his outburst.
The next time I saw Gus I felt skittish about what unexpected anger might be revealed. In his presence I gave thanks for the whole-hearted living I knew he was capable of. I wondered about what disconnects my own words or life might reveal about my generous heart.
- Be aware of the heart space of others
- Be mindful of your heart space
Notice how what is in your heart yearns to be in harmony with the rest of your life.
