The longest journey, is the one from your head to your heart.
Beautiful, is it not? I heard this in one of those Discovery documentaries and I promised myself to put it in the blog.
The journey to shift ourselves from depending too much on our logic to your feeling. The journey to learn how to walk the path of life using our intuition and conscience. The journey to learn how to use not only our physical eyes, but also the eyes of the soul.
And I agree, it is a long journey indeed. I mean, how many of us are brave enough to trust our instinct and live life without thinking too much? Will we ever dare? When was it exactly when we start losing our courage to dream and to be spontaneous, because of all the ‘pragmatic’ and ‘realistic’ thoughts we have?
We say we have grown up. Perhaps we are going in the wrong direction. It’s that way, not this.
The next time we see a child cry, let’s not think of how he/she has distracted us, feel the sadness and the need for love. The next time we see the rain falls, let’s not think of our way home, feel, enjoy. The next time we sip our morning coffee, let’s not think about our day schedule, feel the warmth of the coffee.
Start walking that longest journey. Perhaps we would then realize, it is not as far as we initially thought it would be.
