Heart, Head, Hand: Free The Heart

Free the heart and Let the Hand take over

All my life I have tried to get my head and heart to work together. About the time my head rationalized that I should believe one thing, my heart would intervene and convince me my head was all wrong. Sometimes I would ignore both and just jump in and let my hands take over. Thinking before acting usually works better . . . But not always, which I guess means that an action driven heart does have purpose

Obviously all three working in close harmony bring about the healthiest life.

The life of Christ had no dogma, no creed, no system, no theology. You didn't even need to know how to read or write. A no brainier. A religion of the heart without ceremony and without ritual and without a book. When the life and teachings of Jesus do not harmonize with the facts of history which can be gathered from other sources, I turn to my heart, the dwelling place of God.

Which brings me to my point. It is absolutely essential that we free the heart. Call it prayer, meditation or hanging out at our Glen Lake cottage. It needs to be done with purpose in order for fresh ideas to flow in.

When my heart rules I think about my feelings and the feelings of other people. And how I should act on those feelings. Following the example set forth by Christ is the only answer.

In these sunset years I often think about which of the three would be hardest to loose. The dreaded Alzthlimers would cast an unbearable cloud over my life, but so would a heart that had no feeling and hands that could not work. Keep the heart strong . . . Literally and figuratively. Keep walking . . .Better yet start jogging again!
