The Kostina Effect
You don’t choose your purpose, it chooses you.
You will never follow your own inner voice until you clear up the doubts in your mind. I now follow my heart, and I lead with my heart. I now choose and express my highest self and highest good in my divine spirit work. If you follow your heart’s knowing persistently, you gradually become far less exposed to pressures. Since knowing is so much more concrete than thoughts, feelings, and experiences, it is your first step to indestructibility. I listen to my thoughts, but I always follow the directions of my heart. Do something because you feel like you want to, not because you feel you have to. Let that motivate you to do it well. Allow it to give you a sense of pride and accomplishment. Let it make your life seem more meaningful. Derive a greater sense of satisfaction out of life. Feel more presence in the moment. Feel empowered. Be at peace. We love our partners for who they are, not for who they are not.
To love someone with all of your heart requires reaching them where they are with the only words they can understand. Your words will either give you joy or give you sorrow, but if they were spoken without regret, they give you peace. I have not always chosen the safest path. I’ve made my mistakes, plenty of them. I sometimes jump too soon and fail to appreciate the consequences. But I’ve learned something important along the way: I’ve learned to heed the call of my heart. I’ve learned that the safest path is not always the best path and I’ve learned that the voice of fear is not always to be trusted. Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray. If you truly feel that self esteem and motivation have to happen first before you can make changes in your life, then we’ll probably be sharing walkers at a retirement home as we talk over what might have been. The only real certainty is that if you get to live, you gotta die. Live life now.
You can’t do passion halfway. Living your passion means you’re all in. You trust your heart and trust your gut wherever that takes you. No one knows your truth but you. If you’re secure in yourself, no one and no(thing) can touch you. Follow your heart. Then root its longing with the facts. People who don’t follow their hearts are causing a great disservice to themselves, to the world, and to those who they stand by without love. Trust the timing of your life. Keep focusing on putting one foot in front of the other, be kind, and follow your heart. Doors will open effortlessly, but first you have to be ready to walk through. I can’t pretend to know what will happen. But I’ve been called by her I’ve got to go. You know what that’s like. You answered the call of your boots. Your mind can find all the excuses why your dreams are not possible but you will not be able to fight with your mind the stronger pull of your heart. Sometimes we need to be knocked down in a place so dark that we have no choice but to trust our heart to illuminate the way. Don’t live off your past successes or failures, live for the next big pursuit.
Our inner voice & angels are speaking to us all the time, but we are too busy to hear these voices. For ages & across the world, it is said that you should Go with your gut, Trust your instincts, Follow your intuition & Listen to your inner voice. But with all the external noise, pressure & so much of internal conflict, it is really so difficult to follow your true self & inner wisdom. Your mind, heart, stomach, body & everything around you is continuously guiding, inspiring & telling you what is good for you & what is not. Most of the time, you override these whispering, sensations & instincts with your damn logic, reasons, desires, greed, egos, societal pressure & social graces. Tell me if you haven’t felt horrible lurch in your stomach when it feels something is going wrong. Tell me if you haven’t felt that your heart is trying hard to tell you that you shouldn’t listen to the tricky beast (your mind) for the moment. All I am telling you is that next time when you have a bad feeling, a sense that something isn’t right, an inkling or a pit in your stomach, please pay attention. Remember that following your inner voice & angels will always lead you to what’s best for you & help you to live a more fulfilled, successful & happy life.
Delusion is what your society wants to believe in, reality is what you see from your heart. There is a secret oasis within us, where all the answers can be found. Following your convictions means you must be willing to face criticism from those who lack the same courage to do what is right. It’s called the road less traveled. When you follow your heart every destination leads to somewhere beautiful. I may have let myself go without a safety net, but in my heart I knew the universe would catch me. Leave everything to follow your dream, until your future walks it down the aisle of existence giving it away to meet you at the altered reality of your destiny. The freedom of the open road is seductive, serendipitous and absolutely liberating. The high road of grace will get you somewhere a whole lot faster then the freeway of spite. Those who achieve the extraordinary are usually the most ordinary because they have nothing to prove to anybody. Be Humble. When you decide where you turn next in life, look beyond your thoughts, do not trust your emotions, and listen to your heart.
The highway of grace will get you somewhere a whole lot faster then the freeway of spite. Successes are those highlights of life we look back on with a smile. But it’s the day to day grind of getting them that defines the laugh lines etched until the end of time. Enjoy each moment along the way. When your pockets are empty, go where your heart is full. When you choose intuitive living, you are signing a contract with the Soul and the Spirit that you will follow your own path. Consistently making choices aligned with your true heart’s desire will lead you to your rightful destiny in the end. Life is a marathon, my love, not a sprint. Trust yourself. You’ll get to the finish line eventually. We all do. And when you get there, if you’ve been true to yourself, you’ll be able to look yourself in the mirror with pride and a sense of accomplishment and, most importantly, no regrets. Follow your heart and success will be your unimpressive shadow.
You know that crazy heart of yours? The one with lightning crackling and moonlight shining through it. The one you’ve been told not to trust because it often led you off the beaten path. The one so many have misunderstood your entire life. Trust it. Feed it. Grow it. It’s your greatest treasure and will point the way to your highest destiny. It is the voice of your soul. As the sun knows; even the sky is not the limit. There’s more to a person than flesh. Judge others by the sum of their soul and you’ll see that beauty is a force of light that radiates from the inside out. To commune with your heart and soul, be willing to go out of your mind.
No one who loves the woods stays on the path
