“I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition. “-Martha Washington
I really appreciate all the people whom communicate on this online community as it’s one of my lifelines in my wholehearted life.
My name is Brooke and I AM wholehearted. I’ve learned a great deal about this person called Brooke by helping others. Two things that stand out: I’ve learned that I love to be there for all living creatures and I am not perfect. I don’t have all the answers. I now know that’s okay.
Even without all the answers, I still find that I am grateful to be able to give service and my time to others. I think what I’ve picked up most from living wholehearted is that service and spreading the message is a natural process that evolves when I feel abundance in my life. I’ve come to believe by working with others that we are all interrelated as everything we do, think or say has consequences (not always bad consequences) that involve more than ourselves. Working together to relieve the suffering that these consequences may produce can help to restore balance and peace in the community (again because we are all interrelated).
By working with others, I’ve found that in order to BE wholehearted and not a SEEKER of wholehearted that I have to put the energy into guiding others. I can’t just focus on myself. I’ve found through trial and error that it’s just not enough to focus on myself. I wanted…I needed to help others…not just in the wholehearted community, but also with causes that I feel strongly about.
Do I help others so I look good? No. I help others because I feel a calling to do so. A calling deep down inside the core of my being. To me, this is where I feel that insincere person inside metamorphosis into a human being; one whom is a soul, a heart, a companion, with hope.
Thank you for reading.
