Heart's Desire and The Purple Sky

A purple sky and the purple rain. That signifies our roller coaster of emotions. When we experience the 'purple sky', we are the happiest and on a cloud nine. And when we are bluer than blue, we feel the 'purple rain' pouring in.

That's life! we feel the roller coaster of emotions that brings out the best in us. The purple sky can be so rare that makes it mystical and naturally beautiful. And that's the color that I have found. The color that symbolizes my love.

It was not long time ago that I have discovered some level of spirituality acquired from a Master of Life and revered Spiritual teacher who unifies Eastern wisdom and Western practicality. That was a higher level of Spiritual love for service to humanity through charity work.

Not known to many that the purple color symbolizes spiritual awakening. It calms the mind, enhances our creativity, and uplifts our spirit. And when we achieved such a level of enlightenment, the spiritual color reveals to us in unexpected places and moments.

As we live our purpose, we continue to experience giving love and receiving love. It's the most essential spiritual gift and the most important emotion to carry within.

As we celebrate Valentine's day, we are experiencing the color of love that is revealed to us. It may be the fierce energy of red to some, the calming effect of blue to others, or a combination of both red and blue, and that's the purple - - a highly significant spiritual color.

Love will always be more than and beyond our self. When we have found love, it gives the Purple color; a romantic, lovely, and royalty color in our life that our hearts desire.

Heart's Desire: Evolution of Love

To love someone and be loved in return must be a source of joy most especially when we are suffering from emotional setbacks like loneliness, apathy, and grief. There are times when some people struggle to find the real meaning of love when they feel lost and empty.

However, love has a different meaning to individuals. For the orphan, a warm hug gives them a feeling of acceptance and security. For single parents and a widow, raising their kids well gives them a sense of dignity and pride. The elderly, get the highest respect from the young ones. These are the positive emotions where love wins.

In today's society, we also have the victims of circumstances that made them view love differently. The homeless, feel less secure and abandoned. For the rebel groups, they may feel deprived of equal rights and opportunities. And for the sick and dying, they may feel unfulfilled, uncared, and unloved.

Love has several meanings as we go through the stages in life. When we were a kid, we feel so much love from our parents. As we go through our teenage years, we feel the acceptance and love of our peers. When we are now working and serving people, we feel the love for our countrymen and the nation. That is how love evolves in time. 

Following Our Heart's Desire is a reminder to chase our most coveted goals to achieve and to keep going on when life seems to be challenging in the achievement of our most cherished hopes and dreams. That may be the stage in life when we have all the energy and hopeful desires for success.

Heart's Desire: Living A Fantastic Life is a service beyond self. It's about experiencing bliss; a higher level of happiness that is Divinely inspired. When we reach out to other people through public service, we give part of our Divinity inherent of a human being. Then we go beyond our selfish desires which are all about us; our ego.

Heart's Desire: Living A Humanitarian Life is a realization of a higher level of love when we go beyond our love for self and love for our family. It is about humanitarian service through charity work or public service that allows us to serve both the privileged and the underprivileged sectors in society.

The evolution of love may be beyond life on earth as we may believe in 'life after death and may continue to guide the loved ones who are still fighting for love; the meaning of love and their evolution of love.

Heart's Desire: Living A Fantastic Life

There are times when life gives us a sweet taste of beautiful experiences. Oftentimes, life may also give a bitter taste of painful memories. 

However, we reminisce both the sweetness and bitterness that haunts us; our thoughts and emotions that will either make or break us.

When a tough time comes, we challenge ourselves to overcome it. We are creating an emotional shield as a protective defense not to become broken, but to shed the light of love to ourselves and others. We activate the internal light to guide us when we are lost and to be redirected towards the path of righteousness.

Our memories are a collection of beautiful experiences that will uplift us when things aren't right. Whereas, our miseries can teach us to become tough when we are halfway through... but a fading light. We are crafted by our imagination and desires that can spark a greater force of illumined self for the greater good and a better life.

Today, we are directing ourselves based on the principles we inherit. We go on when we are certain and without hesitation; we pause for a while and ponder when it seems to be doubtful. We continue to seek validation despite fully knowing ourselves, "are we good enough or is it just enough?"

As we continue the journey, we are "Following Our Heart's Desire" and we are molded through life's hopelessness and challenges; turning miseries into bliss. The peak of temporary happiness is when we surpass the valley of tears; a cycle of life that is never-ending; always temporary but has a joyous end.

Our destiny is always unknown to us. However, a Divinely-inspired being will arise in us, sharing a light of hope to some and enlightenment to many... only then it is rightful to live in comfort and live the charming life we deserve to be.

Following Our Heart's Desire

"Life is like a valentine. We never know when an arrow will strike us. We never know whether it will give us hurt or joy. But whenever it comes, we accept it and follow with all our heartsour relentless desire."

At the present time, we may have been experiencing a lot of struggles to survive life's endearing challenges. Some people might be constantly worrying about how to find the right path in life. Some wanted to achieve their goals and dreams despite limited internal resources. Some would have been giving up and let live as it happens.

The fact that life is difficult is not the ultimate reason for us to quit but to face life with faith and gratitude. There are so many things to be grateful for in life. One of which is our existence to find our purpose of living. We are here to follow the right path of life—the key to living a good life.

How do we get there, is a question that sometimes we are out of an answer to. We may have tried to solve so many never-ending problems. Some of which cannot be handled well, resulting in frustrations and distress. However, it is not just the mind we should work for, but also the heart—the love center.

A good heart

Oftentimes, we follow our minds. Yes, it is superior and controls our well-being. Nevertheless, we should consider our heart in our way of living. Our heart carries several functions aside from pumping blood. Hence, its importance is something we should consider and not taken for granted.

If we feel like giving and loving, we activate our hearts. Whenever we feel being compassionate and altruistic, we use the heart. Therefore, our heart is as important as what our mind does. There is the mind that interprets, but there is a heart that feels.

I believe that man is good in nature, thus we have a good heart. I recalled what our college teachers have taught us that no matter how bad a person is, there is still certain goodness in him. He still has a natural gift of a good heart. In that sense, we are given the chance to renew and to make better use of it.

Our desire

In our lives, we may have made wrong decisions that somehow made us have some regrets. We have followed what other people have told us. Whereas we followed the advice of a friend, we listened to what a stranger has said, and we pondered on wrong thoughts without following our real and own desires.

For instance, in our society, we may know someone who is living in a dream with his parents. Pursuing a course or career opposite to what he truly loves. It is due to respect and love that he cannot refuse but to follow. He cannot live his own life but accept and persevere.

If this is the kind of life we want, then we become a prisoner of our fate—our heart's desire. It seems that we do not have a mind and heart of our own. We never realize that life would depend on how we make it and not just living with somebody's wishes.

Something to ponder

Perhaps what keeps us from not following our own will and desire is for the reason that we are not certain of our capabilities. We still have doubts that haunt us to move forward.

We may ask ourselves, who am I? Yet, we are still struggling to know who we truly are. What do I want? Yet, unsure of what lies ahead. Where am I going? Yet, do not know where to head in life. When do I get there? Yet, have not started. Why shall I do it? Yet, doubting own self. And how do I get there? And yet, not utilizing inherent resources.

The questions above are true because I used to be like that. There are times I question myself to have a better understanding of who, what, where, when, why, and how do I want. It is good to constantly re-evaluate ourselves to keep track of our goals and desires.

Keep going on

Like a valentine, we may have full of hearts around on this day expressing love and affection to dear ones. Everyone gives flowers, chocolates and whatever they think is special and worth remembering. Truly, that reminds us that the spirit of love is alive. Our heart is in working mode, and it teaches a valuable lesson to keep going —to follow our heart's desire.

Life is not just about finding our self, but it is about how we create it. Certainly, we are responsible for our own lives and like a sailor, it is our choice on where we are heading to. We have the choice, and it depends on how we use it and make a better play of the game.

Life is like a valentine. We never know when an arrow will strike us. We never know whether it will give us hurt or joy. But whenever it comes, we accept it and follow with all our hearts—our relentless desire. We give our best wholeheartedly, and we have to follow what our minds and heart dictate.
