Heart’s desire

It’s as true today as it ever was: He who seeks beauty will find it.*
Bill Cunningham)

If we allow ourselves to see, we will more readily feel, and if we open to the river of compassionate feeling, we will more likely act. But the call to action is the sticking point.**
(Philip Newell)

Just before you think that really is your heart’s desire, pause a moment before acting upon it.

Is there more to see, to know, to think about, to feed your feeling and grow your heart, and the effect it will have on others.

If it’s a worthy desire, continue, and bring something beautiful into being.

(*Bill Cunningham, quote in Austin Kleon’s Keep Going.)
(**From Philip Newell’s The Rebirthing of God.)
