Why We Need To Lose Our Mind

Why We Need To Lose Our Mindfeatured

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
― John Lennon

I use to think there was something wrong with me when I lost my mind. I thought this didn’t happen to other people and if it did you ended up in the hospital. I feared loosing my mind, because it meant something wasn’t right with me, I was sick and not whole. When I let go of all judgments of what it meant to loose my mind, I freed my self from a mind full of dark, toxic thoughts. Physically I was not in prison, but in my body I felt chained and numbed to everyone and everything around me.

It takes courage and vulnerability to be who we are.

We must let go of the expectations of our mind to simply be with our heart. We must learn to let our mind go so we can fall in love with our heart, our true nature of being.

When I learned to connect with my body there I found my heart. It did not judge me or expect anything from me, it only had love to share with me. It accepted my imperfections, my insecurities and my dark thoughts. For the first time in my life I felt raw, real and I wasn’t ashamed of my thoughts.

We must learn to let our mind go so we can fall in love with our heart, our true nature of being. Our mind creates chaos, but our heart breathes life. Our heart leads with impermanence and our mind leads with attachment.

Our heart is our true nature, our guide, and our mind is a tool we learn to use. It is not stronger than our heart, but it knows your weaknesses and there it thrives. We must learn our weaknesses so we are not overpowered by them, but aware of its power. Knowing our weaknesses is what builds our strength and we become empowered when we become aware of our strengths, beauty, weaknesses and imperfections.

We are a whole being and we are a beautiful force of nature.

Our heart is with us in our suffering, our mind becomes a basket case. We lose our mind to surrender to our heart. Our mind is constantly seeking, constantly telling us that we are not good enough. We must do more or be more to become more. The mind yells, but the heart whispers,

“You are honey, the sweet nectar of life, you are flowers, your sweet aroma follows you everywhere you walk, and darling you are enough.”

Our heart is our truth, but it’s humble and kind in its words. Sometimes we don’t believe the heart and that’s okay, the heart remains right by your side in sickness and health. It uses the energy of grace, wisdom and authentic love to speak to you.

The mind uses power, control and manipulation to conquer you. The heart has taken its time to fall in love with you and it loves every single part of you because it knows all of you.

The mind demands your attention it does not seek your love. The heart is gentle, kind and does not seek your attention it only offers you its love. We run away from this love, because we feel unworthy of it. We feel we must accomplish so much to earn our heart.

The mind plays games, but the heart does not. The duty of the heart is to be with you in your pain and suffering, joy and happiness. It offers a commitment of presence and peace. We are always worthy of the heart.

The heart is our true love, friend and partner in crime. When we align with our heart we align with our authentic self. The mind is never satisfied with us and must learn to not seek its approval.

Be your own master, your own lover, your own everything. The mind drives us to insanity, because it does not nourish us, only pushes us to the brink of emotional explosion, in which allows us the invitation to connect with what is real, what is whole, who we really are. Leave behind the mind, it has served its purpose, and come back home to your heart darling. The heart accepts you for your entire being

You are learning, growing and nourishing your soul. Just continue to be all of you and continue to know all of you. You are free to express your being. You are here to play, create so have fun with it and don’t forget to laugh along the way. Adore your entire being.

Your heart is your greatest ally, it honors you and it loves all of you. Just keep flowing with love with your self and it will naturally pour to others.

Be all of you, learn to fall in love with you. Loose the mind darling and come home to the heart, let it take care of you, you’re going to be okay.
