When we use our heart we have a vision that is completely different than when we use our minds.  We are in the Holiday Season. Sadly, most of us can’t even see our friends and family due to our current pandemic situation. If you would had asked the scientists fighting so very hard to develop a vaccine for this deadly virus just one year ago not impacting any of us, would they say they used their heart or mind?  My guess would be heart first, intelligence next.  They had  to be using more heart than vision and mind. It took plenty of intelligence but it was working from their hearts they found the energy, strength, compassion and view of its importance for all of mankind. 

We were full of hope and optimism without the knowledge of a virus that would cause millions to get sick, and many die this year during the holiday season just one year ago!  We need our heart’s now more than ever.  A heart is where our passion and love, compassion and empathy come from. I would think in many of the cases we have seen added into death tolls and people sick, we would see more hearts giving much more love.  Instead we only see more division.  I don’t like to bring politics into any mix but I will say I don’t believe the leader of the United States of America is operating out of heart currently.  He is operating out of a sheer inability to accept defeat and loss.   I am one who doesn’t accept defeat easily myself, so I do understand to a degree, but then again, I don’t represent my country.   

The best we can do or be is to “be the example through our actions we wish to set for others”.  It is what we do when we raise our children or the best we can hope to do.  Having and operating with heart means putting love ahead of loss and defeat;  not so much self-love but a genuine love and compassion for others.   Do you think we need more great minds in the mix right now, or “heart’s beating and feeling?”  I know what my answer is and hope this holiday season whether you agree with your neighbor’s opinion or not, you will operate first and foremost with your heart.  What does our heart do?  Our heart loves, full of compassion and empathy full and does every action first, from a position of love. 

When was the last time you asked yourself how you were feeling or checked your heartbeat?  Is it strong and sound, placing love above all else or is it operating behind your opinion leaving you filled with division from some and unity with only those who agree with you?  It is time to get it together, people. It is not just you, but me. 

I am just as guilty placing opinion before heart, deciding who and what I will discuss and why I feel so strongly about my opinions.  In the end, if today were my last day on earth and it was my day for judgement to be passed to me, would I be more concerned with a healthy heart or a healthy opinion?  It is not from “sheer intelligence” these scientists came up with a vaccine what is at the very least a miracle to this deadly virus.  They wanted first and foremost to save lives. 

This energy and passion did not come from their minds although of course their intelligence played second to having heart displayed in all their actions.  They did what they did out of the goodness of their heart first and foremost doing without sleep, working day and night, in the fight to save human lives.  Do you think their strength came from their mind or from their HEARTS?   Just for fun, we will take a look at the definition of hearts in our Webster Dictionary. 

Webster Definition of hearts-1. Heart’s-something someone wants very much.  2.  The central or innermost part of something.  a hollow muscular organ that pumps the blood through the circulatory system by rhythmic contraction and dilation. 

Daily Wisdom Word Definition-1.  The heart is the center of physical and spiritual being, and is filled with love, passion and blood or the process it takes to circulate blood or emotions such as love and passion.  This is why it has four chambers in a human.  1.  love 2.  passion 3.  hope  4.  capacity of empathy and compassion.  PLEASE EVERYONE, PULL TOGETHER THIS HOLIDAY SEASON IN HEART EVEN IF YOU CAN’T IN DISTANCE.  REMEMBER EVERYTHING HAS A BEGINNING AND END.  LET YOUR ENDING BE REMEMBERED AS A PERSON WHO HAD HEART AND PASSION IN EVERYTHING THEY FELT WITH AND THEIR ACTIONS TOWARDS OTHERS.  HAPPY HEART-I-DAYS, OR HOLIDAYS.

If it were some years ago, I would have said “the heart just pumps blood. Please don’t give it something as delicate as love”. I understand clearly the need to use our heart in everything we do in life. It is one of the things that ensures a bitter-smooth process. Thanks for sharing this.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
