Calmness

I woke up this morning feeling a sense of peace. I had been reading/watching a lot of spiritually related material from Eckart Tolle's books and a video called What the Bleep do we know. I realize that my mind plays a lot of tricks that shape my emotional experience, or rather roller coaster ride. Tolle calls this mind content, and our mind is always complaining saying it needs more and it doesn't have enough or "I" am not enough. As i went to bed, I had the same thought feeling like I need to study more or watch my World War 2 dvd collection that has been sitting on the shelf for years in a span of a couple weeks. It was like I was searching for more content and not satisfied with knowing what I know.
When I woke up, I just thought about love and doing things from the heart. This is my natural state and when I do things this way, I feel more connection with what I'm doing and even more aliveness because it's what I genuinely love doing. I hope to keep listening to my heart as these days pass and will share the results on this blog.

Much love,
Krisen
