Why Your Heart's Desire is Important

What’s your heart guiding you to do?

The desires of the heart are “life’s longing for itself.”

The topic of this episode reminded us of the poem “On Children” by Kahlil Gibran, from which that quote is taken.

We include more of the poem at the end of this post.

In this episode, we encourage you to really honor your heart’s desire.

Listen to your heart.

It can require some real intention and practice to discern what your true heart is actually saying, because society pours billions of dollars into trying to get us to ’desire’ certain products, services, status symbols, etc.

P.S. the ending music only seems to be missing; keep listening for the real ending ;)

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
— from "On Children," by Kahlil Gibran
