I focus my heart-love in the service of others.
As I serve others through my deepest heart-love, my own love expands and becomes amplified.
There is always more love to share, to give, to experience!
Such joy and gratitude fill me, when I open to my heart’s love!

First, I would like to thank Ka (http://fiestaestrellas.com/), who recently encouraged me through some self-pity regarding my artwork! I think I need to claim my artistic expression more courageously!
After I drew this picture, I scrolled through some of the pictures from the first Journey of the Heart; I found the picture for today’s Journey is remarkably similar to the picture from day 07 of the first Journey. REMARKABLY. See?
They both have some sort of “source” in the lower left, out of which flows some energy. That energy in both pictures flows through something—both of which have multi-layers, and ends up fanning out, like flames or tree-branches.
What is my subconscious getting at here? I wonder what the significance is, if there is any significance at all.
It was a conscious choice for this Journey that my drawings are more abstract than that Journey. There is the one Guiding Thought on this Journey that begins, “Today I decide to give my heart reign…” Well, deciding to allow my drawings to be completely abstract is one way I am choosing to enact this throughout the Journey. The Heart is thoroughly abstract. If I try to translate the heart’s message into recognizable things (people, hearts, globes, etc.…) I may be distorting the purity of the message.
Another problem with trying to directly represent the message through obvious symbols is I am not able to represent everything I want to. For example, how would I represent focusing my heart-love? How do I represent serving others through heart-love? It’s not like saying, “draw a table”. A table is something tangible, something that can be seen and felt and recognized when represented in a drawing, but focusing heart-love in the service of others is intangible and different for every person.
That’s the thing about these Guiding Thoughts…they are personal…everyone is going to have their own feeling about them, and their own way of representing that feeling. It’s that individual feeling that matters. If I can feel that feeling deeply and intensely, really feel what the heart is communicating to me, then draw whatever, the picture will convey the totality of that feeling and will do so in such a way that other people will get it, because (since our hearts are connected in Oneness) my expression of heart-feeling will communicate with you on that level. That is how multiplicities become unified: through our feeling nature (our hearts) universalizing our personal interpretations.
