Listen to your Heart

Thursday, June 24, 2010

"To know how to choose a path with heart is to learn how to follow intuitive feeling. Logic can tell you superficially where a path might lead to, but it cannot judge whether your heart will be in it."
-- Jean Shinoda Bolen

"When you have compassion and surrender to your own heart, you are surrendering to the hidden power in your heart, God. You are surrendering to love, because God is Love, the cohesive force of the universe that connects us all. Surrender is not just a religious concept; it's a power tool for listening to the voice of your spirit and following its directions. When you surrender your head to your heart, you allow your heart to give you a wider, higher intelligence perspective. Remember the phrase, ‘The real teacher is within you.’ Very simply, that teacher is to be found in the common sense of your own heart."
-- Sara Paddison

"Surrender is faith that the power of love can accomplish anything... even when you can not foresee the outcome."
-- Deepak Chopra

    LOL - and here I thought with a title like that, this post might be about heart rate monitors...
Sometimes being a geeky scientist narrows ones thinking. LOL Good thing that there are people out there who express things in other ways, to drag us out of the box!

Valuing the Moment of Time

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

"... the only time you ever have in which to learn anything or see anything or feel anything, or express any feeling or emotion, or respond to an event, or grow, or heal, is this moment, because this is the only moment any of us ever gets. You’re only here now; you’re only alive in this moment."

-- Jon Kabat-Zinn



Eight Week Challenge #9 - Week One Done on to Week Two

Monday, June 21, 2010

Well I have completed week one of the eight week challenge #9 and dropped a two pounds. I am very happy with these results, especially seeing how I wasn't able to exercise much. I am hoping to get back on the exercise track this week. I got my lawn mowed tonight and weeded a small flower garden. Plus, picked up the house and did a load of laundry. So overall, it was an excellent night. Now I am off to bed with the hopes of rising early to exercise and do my Bible study work before before leaving for work at 7:30 a.m.

I hope everyone else had a great week and that this week will be even better. LET'S GO BLUE TEAM!!!!!!!!!

Quote for the Day
