The Heart Knows the Way


The theme on the fourth day of the Guided Imagery Retreat was The Heart Knows the Way and I am happy to share the quotes given in the morning paper found at breakfast.

"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." Mt 5:8

"The tiny flame that lights up the human heart is like a blazing torch that comes down from heaven to light up the paths of mankind. For in one soul are contained the hopes and feelings of all mankind." Kahil Gibran

When you wholeheartedly adopt a "with all your heart" attitude and go all out with the positive principle, you can do incredible things. Norman Vincent Peale

Discouraged not by difficulties without, or the anguish of ages within, the heart listens to a secret voice that whispers: Be not dismayed; in the future lies the Promised Land.  Helen Keller

It is the heart that makes one rich. One is rich according to what one is, not according to what one has. H. Ward Beecher

In the rush of daily living it's easy to forget all the remarkable people who have been a part of your life. But if you just imagine they are near, you will realize that anyone who ever touched your heart is always with you, patiently waiting to emanate warm.  Barbara Sher

You may have other quotes that you like more than these, but the idea of the heart knowing the way leads to some fruitful reflection. Do we stop to listen to our hearts?
