There are times when intellectual analogies can only give a hint or cannot even describe the way of the heart, the way of our energies. Part of developing these senses, is to learn to accept them, the good and the bad, the pleasure and the pain, because they all have something to teach us. Pain & pleasure, sorrow and joy are all children of the same mother. it is said, that the depth in which we feel pain, is also the capacity we have to experience and feel great joy and love.
Our imagination is what fuels our creative gifts, it is where our dreams, goals and aspirations spring from. Desire, is simply a manifestation of our imagination. For we feed our dreams with our desire to make things happen. Compassion, is the thread that connects us to each other. Compassion is the ability to walk in another person’s shoes, but still retain the ability to distinguish what is yours and what is anothers. I feel this is also the gift of insight, enabling us to help others without being caught up in the emotional attachment to their situation. Resonance, is the ability to tune in to the world around you on so many different levels, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
As human beings, I believe that we have the potential for so much, we are so much more then we think we are. By exploring all your senses not just the accepted five senses you are opening the door to a world that is deeper, richer and multi faceted. By exploring all your senses, your ability to express yourself increases. Your understanding of others expands and in doing so, it can improve all your relationships. The most important relationship of all, is the one you have with yourself. You come to understand your own needs more, you are less judgemental of yourself as well as others.
With the expansion of your emotional senses comes the expansion of the mind. You start to see yourself and your situation from a more objective point of view. Your sense of will and self discipline increases. With clarity comes the ability to see through the lies we tell ourselves to justify what we have done that we regret. We start to see through the veil of illusion. Once this happens, things can begin to change in a positive way. Even the pain of facing up to poor decisions is over riden by the joy of freedom that self realisation and awareness brings. So today, make the decision to explore and develop all your senses and honour the real you.
