The Most Valuable Currency There Is

“My soul is not contained within the limits of my body, my body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul. I’ve often said that I wish people could realize all their dreams and wealth and fame so that they can see that it’s not where you’re gonna find your sense of completion. I can tell you from experience the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is, because everything you gain in life will rot, and fall apart, and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart.”

What Do You See?

What do you see?  What is left out, not acknowledged, missed?  In recent posts I’ve focused on the small wonders – tiny flowers and sparkling raindrops.  Taking time with these wonders have reignited my passion for seeing with the heart.  Taking the time, focusing the attention, allowing feelings to inform the seeing, engaging the heart, will always deepen the experience.Raven Child Portrait

In taking the extra time, focus and attention is there a feeling just under the surface of sight?  A whole huge world can unfurl and unfold in that moment of heart seeing.

Carlos Castenada in his studies with the Yaqui sorcerer Don Juan, learned the definition of “seeing” as: “perceiving energy directly as it moves through the universe”.   (He certainly was taking “seeing” to a whole new level of awareness!).

It is possible to feel the energy moving through the universe and to increase our depth of seeing and feeling our world. Taking a long sweet breath, go out to this day, this one and only new day, and see what’s new and what’s been there all along…see with the heart.
