The Restless Heart

The restless heart is like a beacon calling on you to some higher purpose

The inability to sit content, until you’ve found your way back home

Despite your successes, uneasiness still lies in you

Something calling you to do more, to be more

It’s a sign that something is not quite right

That you’ve somehow deviated from the path

The there is a part of you, or in you, that remains missing, that you are not yet complete

And although you can learn to show more gratitude for what is right now,

The heart can only rest once it’s found and pursues its true calling.

Despite having the most sophisticated navigation systems the world has ever seen -

We still wander, searching, seemingly lost, seeking direction.

All the while moving us further and further away from our natural callings

Away from our intended destination.

On the surface we have everything, and couldn’t possibly want for more

Life, by modern standards, is good.

But yet, your restless heart endures.

Seeking to be comforted,

Seeking respite and rest.

Seeking reunion with that missing part of itself

Seeking to have those parts that lay dormant, awakened.

And your potentiality, fully realised

Not in notching up more worldly successes

But rather in growing into what you can become

The fullness of ‘who’ you were made to be.

It’s only then you are whole again

It’s only then that your wounds can be fully healed

And your brokenness can be mended and restored.

So perhaps it’s time to attend to that restless heart of yours,

Not by doing what you want to do, but doing more of what you know you should be doing.

Only then can you begin reclaiming the fullness of your humanity and start living the full human life.

And only then, can you finally put your restless heart to rest.
