Embracing the Unexplainable

http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/a0/b4/fd/a0b4fd0503b42dce8b36a242edb05b34.jpgWe all have great minds, and sometimes we feel the need to explain ourselves, rationalize why we feel a certain way and why we are doing what we do.

But what if understanding is beyond the stories of the mind?

What if true understanding comes from our hearts?

Our heart has a language of its own. It understands the world and communicates in its own way. One that may not be subject to wordy rationale. It speaks intuitively and guides our actions instinctively.

"I don't know why I did that but it just felt right"- this is the heart speaking. Its language is spontaneous and unplanned. It flows naturally.

To free our hearts is to embrace its language, whether it makes sense to our mind or not.

We don't always need a reason or explanation for why we choose to do certain things.

Instead of carefully arranging our lives into bento boxes and getting caught up in the details, let us embrace uncertainty.

Let us embrace the truth that life is messy and allow for our authentic expression without feeling the need to back it up with thought all the time.

Because the minute we try to create an explanation, we create a limit. A mental explanation suggests that something is a certain way- that it is fixed- this way of categorizing or labeling our experiences can sometimes take away from the magic of uncertainty and possibility.

Some things just are. And in their simple beingness, we see their truest beauty.
