“Follow your heart and intuition, they already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary” — Steve Jobs
Today I received a great question on Twitter that opened for me the gate to this article. After reading this quote from Steve Jobs, my Twitter friend asked me “How do you learn to trust your heart?”. My immediate answer was to first learn to listen to it so that one can find how to trust it.
First step: Listening
Spiritual and personal growth teachings, non-western practices, even religions, all have something in common: they provide answers, tips and techniques sometimes in symbolic manners, others in pragmatic ways that allow us to discover our heart and listen to it while we experience our daily lives. But how to do this “listening”?
The short answer: Listen intently!
The (not so) long answer: The path that connects us with the heart lies beyond the constant turmoil of thoughts, actions and reactions to which we are constantly identifying ourselves with. Listening to our heart means that we need to go deep within ourselves, past our thoughts and be willing to open up to the eternal peace within which our magical music is constantly singing to us. This unique symphony of love that “we are” is the very fabric of our universe.
This means of course we must open to love: love intended for ourselves firstly and not for “another” person present in our lives. Initially, we will get in touch with our love, soon we will become it, and then we will merge with our heart beyond the cluttered existence of thoughts and beliefs.
Thoughts are just a screen, a separation within you. They happen only when you identify, react, or feel related to a belief, event, or person. It is within the unified understanding of the heart that you really experience all that which is you, and become, or better said, remember the being that you truly are.
By letting go of the habit of thinking, entering into a less defined, less controlled reality, our uniqueness will express itself through the experience in our bodies and souls. Our thoughts will even change into efficient soldiers of our heart’s “commands”, enriching immensely our daily lives. And slowly but surely thoughts’ prominence will loosen and open the way to a marvelous experience of love, moving our awareness from the paradigm of mind, the doer, to the one of heart, the being.
You will become One… with yourself.

Great Article!…It’s a great pleasure the read you.
And yes when we do listen more often to what we feel, more happiness in life will be experienced as such. Instead us asking how to listen….you just listen!
We talk but we do not listen, we think but we do not feel, we do but we are not aware, we are together but we are not one….
has all to do with the non communication factor. When we do communicate or “share” we are able to listen. When we do not communicate or “tell each other what to do” we are not able to listen.
So when we stop telling our selves what to do and listen to what we truly want we are able to feel happiness and to experience oneness.
Thank you for sharing!
Such beautiful words! Thank you so much. I totally agree
Dear Arnaud Saint-Paul
I realy enjoyed watching the youtube video on this page of David Icke – Who’s controlling Who?…Very interesting, clear and inspiring!
again….Thank you for sharing!
You express yourself beautifully. Curious if after doing the work to listen to your heart and open yourself in this way – to become One – with yourself…what your heart/spirit says about the idea of Twin Flames – not soulmates.
Thank you dear Amy 🙂
I have had the chance, along my path, to meet my twin flame. It is actually her presence in my life that has allowed me to cover the “last mile” toward deeply listening to my heart.
What I can say so far is that you can definitely meet your twin flame in this path toward Oneness IF it is in your focus, or most probable path. I daresay that to meet with one’s Twin Flame is to abandon all pretense and enter or, better said, renew with an eternal “merged” state. No more apparent physical border, but one heart singing in unison with itself. Sometimes, obviously, our mental part create some discordances but within love, within our heart, we can come back soon to our origin and BE One … in Two 😀
It seems I already have much to say on the topic and may be it shall become the subject of another article :). What do you think?
I would certainly be interested in reading what you have say were you to delve further into my favourite subject. Thanks for answering 🙂 Have a fortuitous day.
