Your vision becomes clear when you look inside your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.'
I love this quote by Carl Jung as it has such meaning to me. Quite often we will silence the call of our heart in fear of the rejection and pain that may be experienced when opening our heart to the possibilities that the universe may bestow on us. Over the years I have sought the key in unlocking the possibilities that I knew lay inside of me, however the song in my heart was only an echo I seemed to chase, taunting me endlessly. After thousands of books, courses and deep introspection I came up with “nothing”. All the words and all the meanings given to those words, phrases and lovely sentiments fell short of their promise to deliver me from my imprisonment, it was as if I was peering through a window at all the possibilities that life had to offer but was not allowed to touch. What I have come to realize that, though I am sure I had heard it before, was that life has no meaning other than the meaning we give it. There is only two things going on in life, what actually is happening and the “meaning we give” on what is happening. It is in the meanings we give to the events of our life that determine the quality of life, it determines our level of joy, hope, compassion, and of course it also determines the level anger, self pity and frustration we will experience. Is it that simple, just to choose love over hate, compassion over indifference, forgiveness over revenge? Actually, it is the powerful choices we make that set us free. We get to powerfully choose to clear out a space in front of us to grow, love and flourish, we get to choose the path and the meaning of our life, what will you choose??
