“I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart”
Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent Van Gogh was a pretty gutsy guy in my book. Not only was he phenomenal at what he did, and what he shared with the world and generations to follow, he shared with us words that many of us would like to believe we follow.
Yet, often times, we find ourselves falling far short of what we seek, what we strive for, with ALL of our heart. We find ourselves in a mass of tangled cobwebs, sweeping our hands this way and that, flailing, trying to find a way out.
I wonder what would happen if in our seeking, in our striving, with ALL of our heart, we would just stop. Stop to “be still” and “listen”? Listen to the still, small voice deep within, where our passions, our joy, our peace is found.
If we did, then, I believe, that as we seek, as we strive, as we go ALL in, with ALL our heart, all we have to do is BE…the passionate, joyful, unique person we are – all without saying a word.
