Yesterday in my Holy Relationship Healing class, I talked about having a practice of heart yoga. I’ve never heard anyone use that phrase before, and I’ve never said it before. It just came to me as being the perfect way to describe the practices of truly living A Course in Miracles.
One of the helpful quotes from A Course in Miracles is, “You’re never upset for the reason you think.”
As much as we might prefer to blame others for how we feel, it’s never going to be true that it’s their fault. When we can finally take responsibility for the thoughts we think then we’ve made a huge step in the direction of spiritual maturity.
One of the most powerful realizations I’ve had on this path of unfolding love is that my willingness to be responsible for what I choose to think is actually going to be a benefit to me. It’s part of my practice of heart yoga. It’s spiritual fitness.
Heart yoga is a devotional practice of taking responsibility, gratitude, willingness, kindness, patience, generosity and most important of all, loving compassion. We can practice these with an attitude of devotion and it brings so much benefit.
I’ve learned that being responsible is an act of self-love. It’s natural for us all to make mis-takes. I make them every day and I also learn from them every day. I used to be terrified to make mis-takes, but since I’ve learned to be loving with myself I’m not afraid to make mis-takes anymore.
Some mis-takes are missed opportunities.
Some are tactical errors.
Some are oversights.
No matter what, I’m always learning, and that keeps me flexible. I’m always learning to forgive. Forgiveness is an act of Love and being able to forgive easily makes me a more loving person. Wonderful!
Today we’re practicing heart yoga to get in shape for a miraculous life!
