What Will Make Your Heart Sing...? Thursday October 23, 2014

Sitting alone,
With thoughts on my mind.
Listening to music,
What do I find?

Images and thoughts,
from my past life.
Faces and places,
That can cut like a knife.

Emotions and feelings,
Threaded through all.
Names and faces,
That continuous toll.

We live such rich lives,
As we seek our way,
So many tunes,
That for a time hold sway.

Different songs,
Take our mind back.
Different lyrics,
To write our own track.

The years roll by,
And hearts can cry.
Important decisions,
Do we live or die?

Did you love or leave,
Too early in life?
Have you lost, to grieve,
A boy or a wife?

Or have you grown,
As life opens up?
With courage to shift,
The past to usurp.

Where are you now,
In this thing called life?
It's the direction you're moving,
That brings joy or strife.

What's in your heart,
That needs to be clear.
That's all that'll keep,
Joy from austere.

Open that feeling,
To what's right for you.
Look into your heart,
For what is true.

Then decide to follow,
To the depth of your soul.
Whatever you find,
As you seek your goal.

Forget all else,
In this busyness of life.
Please inscape in you,
Use that emotional knife.

To cut through the crap,
That escaping brings.
You have only one life,
What will make your heart sing?

What thoughts arose when you read the above?

What feelings emerged?

Which line caught your spirit?

Because that was your heart (your intuition) speaking to you.

The question now is - what direction can you move in, to make your heart sing?

What thoughts crossed cross my mind? First a a very splendid effort thank you. It brought together all those thoughts and feelings going across the blue sky of my mind in some sort of order and perspective. Inscape is a god starting point but then to look outward with a new awareness and sample the richness of our lives.

A beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Spot on.....everyone should watch this.....FAB!

My wee challenge to improve it, would be the inclusion of the 'other' sex - men - although for sure image is more a woman thing....more powerful if it included all society, including THAT for me would move it from bloody great to bloody magic! ;-)

Thank you Silvia - what a great start to the comments............

Another spot-on......

What a fab start to the day........ :-)

A change of self-awareness is THE start of ALL only from personal change comes all other change - family, team, organisation, community, government, planet!

Self-Awareness -> Self-Control -> Self-Esteem -> Self Actualisation (to be all you can be - back to Maslow) ever upward spiral of growth and wisdom....with each and every shift in our self awareness.

Which I'm afraid to say is often at a juxtaposition with what we call 'education' in the west - which is really 'schooling'.

Education from the Latin 'Educare' - 'to lead out'
Schooling from the Greek 'Schole' - 'to put into'

Wisdom comes from education
Cleverness comes from schooling

The clever person knows the answers
The wise person knows the questions.

The world needs wisdom not cleverness as it stands.

I like the poem. And yes, I must concentrate on what makes my heart sing.
Incidentally, that is writing poetry, which gives me an outlet of emotional intensity.
Push to the back that which i cannot change.
Thank you Les

Like DaveB, I'm still working it out. Find myself arguing with what I'd like it to be and what it actually is. Liked your post Les, thank you, love from the room above the garage.
