“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
I am grateful to notice what my heart tells me and how it responds. I am assured that I can trust my heart and intuition much more than my logical mind, as my brain often caters to my ego, whereas my heart never does.
I usually listen to my heart, always with beneficial outcomes.
I know my heart is the Wise One within.

Especially when I was a devout atheist, I relied on my logical and analytical skills regularly to live my life. That’s interesting considering that I am an especially sensitive, feeling person.
Since my logical mind and ego could never prove the existence of God in the way that it was looking to do so, I was ‘stuck’ being an atheist. It was looking for the visible evidence of God. When I got into a 12 Step program and heard stories of miracles and witnessed the transformation of others, I knew it was the result of a Higher Power. The miracles and transformations were invisible evidence, but evidence just the same for me of the existence of God. My heart was touched, my heart knew. It was not of the mind.
From then on, I started relying less on my logical mind and trusting my heart, my gut, my intuition more. I’m still learning how to do that despite 30+ years, but the ways of this society don’t promote that. I am grateful to be surrounded and supported by those who do operate and live their life in that way, and by a Power Greater Than Myself that shows me the way.
The logical, analytical mind has its place in this world and in my life, but it’s a far smaller place than it used to be as I have relied more and more on my heart’s wisdom, on Spirit.
