In one form or another, most of the posts presented on this blog have either explicitly or implicitly contained a ‘following our heart‘ message. Believing in individual freedom, the idea here of following our heart is not promoted as part of a specific doctrine or way of thinking.
That said, most of us may have experienced occasions in which we have embraced the concept of following our heart, possibly despite strong opposition from our rational mind. The result, if we are honest, will most likely have underlined the validity of our choice.
Yet it is easy to ignore the strong message coming from our heart, especially if we have been conditioned by years of operating according to logical thinking. This is natural in as much as habits guide us in the decision-making process, be it for our own good or not.
Following our heart for some people, perhaps including you, could already be a way of living to the full. In this case, the advantages of listening to our inner wisdom will already be clear and no further words on the subject are needed.
However you operate, thanks for reading this ‘Following our heart‘ post today.
