Jonas, this is great when you say, “The only way you can put your heart into something is to engage with it. Not to merely think/plan/ponder about it. But to dive in, heart first”.
In my experience, engaging the heart is not for the timid. These challenges mostly go unmet because of the walls human beings have built in their minds. These walls confine their pain and isolate them from the love and connection they need for a fulfilling life.
Work and other passions can bring fulfillment. But it is these connections of the heart that have a compelling impact on human lives.
I recently listened to a Melyssa Griffin, Pursuit of Purpose podcast. She interviewed best selling author, Mark Manson, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a *F*. He made what I thought were some profound remarks.
“For a lot of people when something FEELS difficult to them. They assume the solution must be very complex. My experience is the opposite is actually true. The solution is incredibly, incredibly simple. But it’s really, really painful and difficult to endure. So most people avoid it”
I repeat your great thoughts,“dive in, heart first” anyways.
