What are the Benefits of an Open Heart and Mind?
An open mind creates constructive and optimistic attitudes and a greater sense of awareness which allows you to look at your world from a different perspective. An open heart is dynamic and full of joy and enthusiasm. Open-hearted people have a genuine interest in and regard for other people and live a life filled with purpose and service to humanity.
An open mind is an understanding mind that has developed a genuine appreciation for people and will accept everyone unconditionally. When you open your mind to new and exciting ideas, your possibilities become limitless. An open heart is living with a heart full to overflowing with loving kindness. When your mind is tired of trying to find the meaning of life, go to your heart and let it lead you through its fullness to an inspiring life.
All mankind is hungry for open and constructive attitudes and actions with generosity and enthusiasm and quickly responds to them. It has been shown that, generally, optimistic, open and cheerful people who are prepared to listen to others and learn new ways of doing things are more successful than those who are closed-minded and pessimistic.
Self-image is the key to your personality and behaviour and it sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment. It defines what you can and cannot do either by limiting your thinking (closed minded) or by expanding the area of the possible (open minded). When you develop a positive self-image within yourself you open up new capabilities, new talents and you can literally turn failure into success. To create the life that you want, to grow as a human being and regularly experience a prosperous lifestyle, you will need a mind open to other people, possibilities, ideas and opinions around you. When you have an open mind you allow yourself to attract and follow up on opportunities.
An open mind is an understanding mind which will develop a genuine appreciation for people. When you take the trouble to think of other people?s feelings, their viewpoints and their desires, you are saying ?you are important to me?. An open mind will accept other people unconditionally but it requires the letting go of likes and dislikes and other similar emotions. When you do this you allow people to be who they are with all their idiosyncrasies and differences. When you open your mind you are not compromising your ethics and values. It just means that you begin to practice a greater sense of awareness and in doing so you are prepared to look at your world a little differently.
When you have achieved an open mind, you can then open your heart to humanity. An open heart understands that as human beings we are not islands; we need each other and we are linked together in more ways than we can imagine. Your heart will always lead you to fellow human beings and it longs to experience and interact with others. Opening your heart to those around you can be challenging but it is very worthwhile. The heart has been referred to as having influence over your thoughts, feelings and values and you must learn to understand the wisdom of your heart because it will help you understand yourself more accurately.
I read somewhere that the heart is like a compass that, when opened and listened to, will guide you through life more gently yet powerfully than the mind can ever hope to do. Its language is peace, compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience and thankfulness and when you open your heart you can access these emotions in infinite supply and they become the essence of who you are. A sincere, open heart for others shows through the eyes of the individual. Open-hearted people have an inner light shining through their eyes which marks a dynamic personality.
When your mind is tired of trying to find the meaning of life, go to your heart, commit to opening it up and let it lead you through its fullness to an inspiring life.
