    It's Ok To Follow Your Heart

    So a friend at a social network website posted a link to a Bluegrass music that she liked. The music reminded me of my first trip to America when I spent 2 weeks in Orlando with a couple of friends. Because I used to work with them and occasionally socialised with them, I thought...

    What Is Right For Me

    While it is everyone's divine right to possess the Kingdom that we collectively call "earth", I believe each individual can only possess that part that is right for them or truly belongs to them.There is, therefore, a right love companion, right family, right friends, right...

    My Own Heart

    I believe wholly 100% in following your heart (in most cases), yet I find it so difficult to follow my own. I've been working on that a bit the past year or so, doing things I've always wanted to, but never had the courage (or opportunity) to do, but there are so many other ways...

    Follow Your Heart, But Don't Forget To Take Your Brain

    Many times in my life I neither followed my heart nor used my brain to make some decisions. I really don't know why I did what I did, but I'm sure it was based partly in fear and anxiety, or just giving up on finding the right person. Now I've learned what consequences those...

    How Do I Do That?

    When people say to me that I should follow my heart, or my inner "something", I always try to figure out how I do that. As if there were a how  to do list, but when we try to find a method for it, or define what it means, we are not following our heart anymore. Right ? Sometimes...

    The mind can complicate everything

    but the heart simply knows if it feels right or wrong. That doesn't mean don't think at all...It means, don't ignore your heart. It is your conscience, your truth, and your path.
