Truth of the Heart

21 Comments

Often, the truth of the heart
remains unspoken…
it hides in the quiet corners of the mind
as an abstract distraction
seeking solace
inside the thoughts
that offer some understanding
to the chaos inside.

  1. Hmmmmm …. this is deep, at least it is for me, Neha. The truth, especially sometimes at first, is startling. And scary. And we just push it away unable to process it. Truth tends to stir things up, at least it does me when it has to do with something that is deeply hidden within me.
    I had a conversation with Vietnam Vet today at the gym. One thing he said about himself, “I’m such a prick at times.” I stopped in my tracks, looked at him, and quietly said, “S., don’t be so harsh on yourself. All of us, no matter who, have our shadow sides. We just have to learn how to not let them control us.” It’s easy to see someone acting like a “prick” and say “Oh not me”. We all can act like that, and it takes a big person to admit it. When I first realized I am capable of some of, if not all, of what my husband does when he goes into one of his scary PTSD states, I couldn’t handle it. No, I rebuked myself. No way. Later down the road, however, I knew what I saw in him, mirrored what I am capable of as well.
    Truth ….. it’s a bitter pill to swallow but when we do, how it brings peace!!
    All this YOUR post encouraged to trickle up and out of me. Thank you!

  2. So beautiful – a whole lot does happen in that space within.

  3. So true and lovely said Neha.
    We are the keepers of what is inside of us. Our heart knows everything.

  4. So beautiful and poignant, lovely Neha
