Sowing the Seeds

What does it mean to follow one’s heart? Does it mean to please those around you, whether they are your family or close friends? Does it mean to please your spouse, or your children? Does it mean to please angels or spirits? Does it mean to please society? Our lives are intertwined with all that is around us, from people to plants to animals. We are all connected. And though some of us may try to please others for the sake of another’s happiness, we must learn to look to our own heart. One’s heart can only be subdued for so long before it cries out to be heard.

Some say that by pleasing others, they are in fact pleasing themselves and pleasing God. Though this may be true, we must stop long enough to look to our own heart. Nothing is hidden. This life is a gift for each of us. Though it is each our choice to decide how we wish to live and which path we choose to take, our motives are always known. We may convince our family and friends. We may even convince ourselves. No matter how much convincing we try to do, our intent is always known for the seed was planted long before we were created.
