To know what your heart desires is a challenge in and of itself. To then be grounded enough to act upon this desire is once again a challenge in and of itself. Combining this feminine heart felt sense with the masculine ability to act then requires the balanced state of allowing and this too is a challenge unto itself. To gather enough heart and courage, strength and compassion and then give in to the allowing and the unfolding? Who said that life was meant to be easy?
"To know what is important to you, to have a real sense of who you are and what would be deeply satisfying and archetypically true, is not enough. You must also have the courage to act...courage is a willingness to act from the heart, to let your heart lead the way, not knowing what will be required of you next, or if you can do it."
