What is the deep ache in your heart?

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Welcome to week four. In this excerpt, David describes how Caravan moved, in near silence, a community deep in contemplation. Nearly everyone walking that night appeared to have something weighing on his or her heart - a sea of pilgrims moving together, more inwardly focused than anything else.

The collective mood of reflection moved David to ask "what the deep ache in my heart meant for my place in all of this?".

Welcome to the caravan of remembering. A year of living dangerously is a year long offering based on the book the caravan of remembering by Daniel good enough. That provides kindling for your body, mind, heart and soul to light up your exploration of your life's mission. Welcome to week four of a year of living dangerously. This week we are exploring the deep longing in our hearts. Here is our excerpt from the caravan of remembering. Caravan moved in near Silence, a community deep in contemplation. Nearly everyone walking that night appeared to have something weighing on his or her heart. I felt it in the air. We were a sea of pilgrims moving together, more inwardly focused than anything else. I felt the inner communication that directed us. Even the camels new end...

...turn like us. They were a unified field, inwardly guided. The collective mood of reflection moved me to ask what a deep ache in my heart meant for my place in all of this. Just on that point of being in a field together, I think of birds flying together in the sky and that feeling of them just moving together and or even in synchronized dance or, you know, watching people on a stage and just there's a kind of a an interesting like locked in feeling of moving together that that I've I know I've experienced at different times in my life where it's like it's not like we're all thinking...

...the same thing. I mean I don't even know what other people are thinking of, but there's this there's this feeling of moving together, like with with caravan guides, but with, you know, in creative flow and processes. There's this feeling of that movement and I think this actually does relate to my longing for, you know, the ache in my heart for peace and harmony. And I know it sounds really kind of Postcardi by there really is this deep longing for a feeling, like on the planet and in myself, of harmony and too, and so I've I've often really looked at well, what is harmony? It's not when it's all the same note, but it's when there's different notes playing together that create a certain harmonic so I relate this to my life mission because I'm longing for that longing for harmony comes through different work...

...that I do. In actually, where I think it comes through the most is in my relationships with others where I might be trying to seek harmony in a certain relationship, but really it's feeling that harmony in myself first, and that's a life mission piece. It's like there's something that I'm working on around that over and over and over again and building skill around that, and that is that gets expressed in my work relationships, in my family relationships. My ache for piece gets expressed in my relationships and also in in how I just even how I go through my day and be present with others in my day...

...or what I'm doing in my day. What is the deep ache in my heart? And as I was sitting with that question this week, I came to realization that the deep bake in my heart was to go home. To go home, the the idea of relationship, and I was listening to you and I was feeling into coming home or being home. It's a sense of connectedness, it's a sense of belonging, it's a sense of for me it's a sense of connectedness, a sense of belonging, a sense of, you know, being in the right place at the right time. And Daniel Talks about when you're when you're in the question of your life mission. There is a sense of being in the right place at the right time, both in...

...terms of a sense of safety, sense of this is the place I don't when I'm when I'm aching for when I think about home, it's not a place, it's a feeling within myself in it, and it comes down to being in right it's like about connection. It's for me. It's about connection, which is like relationship and is connecting to for me, to all the aspects of my life and all the beings in my life. So it's relationship, yes, and I drop it a little bit deeper into connection. Just being that aliveness of being, that that fully engaged aliveness of being, that...

...dropped in sense of aliveness. That's that feels more like home to me. Is there when I'm in alignment with what's happening within me and without me, with in me and outside of me and in a line move with my reason for being, what I'm personally here for, and when all those come into alignment, there is a for me, there's a really strong sense of coming home.
