When was the last time that you heard your heart beat?
Can’t remember? You’re not alone. Surrounded by noises inside and out, we are inundated to the point that our faithful heart is pumping to keep us alive and yet laid to the wayside, being taken for granted.
Not criticizing. Only an observation.
In meditation, I tried to listen to my heartbeat. Intentionally. First, I heard the neighbor’s car cruising down the street. So I focused more – breathed in and out. Then I heard the ticking of the clock on my desk. But despite numerous attempts, I couldn’t hear my heartbeat. Got to work on that mind-body connection.
Isn’t that true for many things in life – the closest to us is the most neglected?
Have you listened to your heartbeat lately?
