Each day, I try to live by the principles of Heart-Based Living. Here is a saying that I have on my bulletin board in my office that helps me remember what is important to me in life and how I would like to live each day.
“When all of our intentions and actions in daily life originate from the intuitive wisdom of our hearts; when we feel and act with sincere appreciation, caring and kindness for others; and when we can observe the world around us without the preset judgments of the mind but rather with the compassion in our heart – then we will truly be living from the heart.”
What is Heart-Based Living?
Heart-Based Living entails so much, and yet, it is so simple that it comes naturally to small children, who live their lives this way until the stresses of the world begin to weigh upon them. Anyone with sincere intention can learn the art of Heart-Based Living with daily practice.
There is perhaps no more appropriate way to understand the meaning of Heart-Based Living than through the words of the individual who has devoted most of his adult life to defining it: HeartMath founder Doc Childre.
