A Dream

"Evolving"                                                                                       B Upton      
About 20 years ago I had a dream that I will never forget.

While I was dreaming I suddenly felt that I was going to be gifted with a message of great import. I heard that it was a message most needed by humanity during these times. Well, that got my attention! I remember feeling very alert and excited .

Then there were letters- hundreds of them- all swirling before me. "Oh, no" I thought, "how will I ever make sense of  this?" But I was so sure that a secret would be revealed that would help us all, I willed myself to concentrate harder. The letters swirled faster and faster then came to an abrupt stop and this is what they said:

"Seek Your Own Heart."

I was baffled at first and thought- that's it? And what does it mean anyway? Well, my understanding has evolved overtime. Today, I see that it provides a key to help us to connect to the divine, everlasting and beautiful souls that we are. 

It is all about the sixth step to inner peace- connecting with your heart- that I'll be writing about soon. But for now, you might like to review the first five steps I've written about below. They are briefly: grounding, conscious breathing, giving thanks, appreciating beauty and meeting, accepting and eventually loving your shadow- every part of who you are. They prepare us and Step 6 will propel us on our journey of awakening!

I was just thinking today, "when is Barbara posting the next step to inner peace?" and there it is, even better, a preparation for the next step. I love that dream and your lively, swirling painting matches that dream so perfectly.

"Seek your own heart" - that reminds me of a quote by Søren Kierkegaard that I put up in the office today: "Don't forget to love yourself."

Good one to put up- seems like we need to be reminded quite often!
