A Journey from Head to Heart

The longest distance in the World is from the head to the heart (A million dollar statement by an unknown master). The longest journey that you will make in your life is from your head to your heart. The journey into the heart is our future and it is our only way of creating a future. It is a movement towards wholeness, integrity and compassion. It is an emotional awareness. To become aware of everything that you are feeling at every moment is very difficult because you experience so much pain each moment. Becoming aware of our emotion means becoming aware of our pain. It is challenging, unpleasant and difficult. It is most rewarding than any of us can imagine. The awareness is transforming human experience.

Becoming emotionally aware is a process and creating an authentic power is lifelong endeavour. Today’s education is shaping our intellect and logical thinking. We are intellectually strong, sharp and focused but the problems of life need more humanitarian approach of flexibility, empathy and cooperation than the logic. In the world of science, intelligence matter in the society and the family, we need sympathy and sensitivity. Self-awareness leads the individual to analyse the purpose and existence of life, it helps in analysing life at every thought. Self-awareness helps in connecting the dots or different facet of life. Which awareness? The awareness of spiritual being, the awareness of spiritual treasure of virtue, might and love in every individual. The awareness of the Spiritual Father and His presence in and around me, His cooperation. The awareness of the divine energy and relation which have been binding us. The journey of such experiences is long and a few initiate the footsteps of courage. We give so much excuses and many of us get tired or tumble. It is invisible and slippery. The word relapsing is appropriate in this journey as many of us feel safe in reverting back to the starting point. Physically, we are aware of our existence but emotionally ignorant of our strength, capacity and ability. Lao Tzu said that the first step on the path to wisdom is the ability to say, “I don’t know.” In the Brahma Kumaris millions of souls are emotionally aware and determined to cover the journey. Life is filled with energy and motivation to march ahead and to take the millions along. It is not just a solo journey, many will join with you and many are already there. It is the journey of joy and relaxation.
