what fills your heart?
Do you ever wake up in the morning and for no reason whatsoever feel your heart filled with light, with love and with gratitude?
The kind of inexplicable joy that doesn’t come from anyTHING or anyONE but comes from deep inside of you? It is unrelated to your circumstances, your surroundings, your world. It is a deep feeling that resides within you.
This morning my alarm went off at 04.10 and hopped out of bed, brushed my teeth and headed to the kitchen. I made the tea for class, had my ishnaan got dressed and went through my notes for the 5am class.
It was an absolutely normal morning.
Except that my heart felt light. I could actually feel it sitting in the cavity of my chest beating, lightly. I could feel each breath as it was drawn into my chest filling my body with life giving prana and I felt grateful. To be alive, to breathe, to be in this body, for my family, for my cats and dogs, for the tea in the flask, for the date balls in the cookie jar.
I have recently had in my radar the phrase – take note of the small things for they are the big things. I don’t know who said it or where I saw it but it has been presented to me a few times and perhaps it was that subliminal message that was playing out in my sub-conscious that led to my incredible sense of gratitude and well-being this morning.
Whatever it was I am grateful. Grateful that I don’t actually need anything to fill my heart, my heart is full, overflowing with everything I need. Everything that is important, beautiful and necessary resides within me, and my gift this morning was that realisation.
I can wake up every morning feeling light, held, joyful, loved and loving because I am all of those things.
Have a beautiful and gratitude filled day beautiful people, because you too can feel light, held, joyful, loved and loving because you too are all of those things.
