A Successful Life – it must be done with love and understanding

The heart chakra in yoga is the center of love and understanding. Managing a relationship should always come from a place of caring as opposed to manipulation. Love and understanding are the gateway to respecting the soul of an individual.

The heart chakra is the fourth energy center moving up the spine from the base of the spine to the top of the head. It lies in the area of the sternum or near the heart. It relates to love, expansion and indefatigable nature of the human spirit.

When the heart center is open and balanced the natural of our identity becomes infinite. We understand the eternal nature of love. We have the capacity to sacrifice for the sake of sacrificing and to love without condition. It is here that our first level of higher consciousness evolves. Being able to freely connect with this energy center is another piece of living a successful life.

It can take a life time to master love and compassion. It comes from a realization that we are all one with the same shared feelings and experiences. How we color those experiences may be unique to each of us but at the root of life we all are one. Love is love and hate is hate. We share and experience the same emotions. Understanding this we can reach out with compassion to those who are less fortunate, in need and not yet fully evolved.

To rise to this level of being is to begin to connect with and appreciate the true nature of success. A life consciously aware of and consciously living in love and understanding is a life that is rich, peaceful and happy. We all want to love and be loved. It is what makes for a successful life.

In a relationship love is the factor that will carry the relationship through all sorts of trying times. But love does not come without a price. In fact true love is not the stories of romance but rather the commitment, loyalty and caring that comes with time and a deep understanding of both the sameness and the differences in each human being.

You will know real love when the time comes that support and understanding is needed and it is given without hesitation or expectation. When you receive this love or you give this love, you will gain insight into the nature of a successful life.
