This Week in the Rhema "Christian Yoga" Weekly...
A guru told me last week that I would always find happiness if I lived with my heart... meaning that if I let my heart guide me, I would always be happy.
This cannot be true.
Happiness, by nature, is a fleeting emotion. We cannot possibly have happiness at all times. What's more, being guided by our heart in an attempt to chase this emotion is sure to only leave to striving and miserable, with moments of happiness in between.
The "heart" (or the soul in Christianity) cannot be trusted to guide us.
It can indicate to us when things are off, and we should listen, but it cannot guide us. What's more, chasing around an emotion such as happiness can only lead to unhappiness when we are not happy.
When we invite God into our hearts, we are led by the Holy Spirit. We have a purpose. We not longer idolize and chase after things of this world that cannot last such as happiness, or money, or fame.
This is the Joy of the Lord.
At Rhema Yoga, we use Christian Yoga to explore this side of living. A life of Joy, because God is with us.
