What does your Heart Say?
This is one of those songs that I find totally captivating, beautiful, simple and perfect. I admit it is my soundtrack to life right now for sure; yes, I have it on continuous repeat. It's just so beautiful and for a girl that loves to ask questions, it asks the million dollar one -what does your heart say?
We live in a world that is constantly moving; it can be hard to sit still long enough to even consider such a question. But what would happen if you did take that moment, if you took a second to slow down and ponder what your life would look like if you actually listened to your heart, if you lived your bliss? Life is not a guarantee, the only real guarantee in life -as much as I like to pretend otherwise- is death. Yet why do most of us live perpetually shunning that which we know to be only a matter of time? It's really one of life's greatest paradoxes-what if we actually lived every moment of our life like it was our last? Ok I get it-it's not that easy. I know. If it was we'd all be listening to our hearts, we'd all be living our bliss, following our dreams and there'd be only love, not war but... what would this world be if we all heard what our heart had to say and actually listened to it? We all are blessed with unique talents that are our gifts to share with this world-wouldn't you rather live this life having tried everything under the sun than having risked nothing at all?
I love this video in particular because it's shot on a train in Melbourne and captures the beauty in the everyday instances we so often think nothing of, I also love the sense of similarity and connection between the seemingly strangers on the train - enjoy and check Xavier Rudd out; he is an incredible songwriter and has so many beautiful songs!
Follow the sun by Xavier Rudd
Follow, follow the sun and which way the wind blows when this day is done. Breathe, breathe in the air. Set your intentions. Dream with care. Tomorrow is a new day for everyone, Brand new moon, brand new sun. So follow, follow the sun, the direction of the bird, the direction of love. Breathe, breathe in the air, cherish this moment, cherish this breath. Tomorrow is a new day for everyone, brand new moon, brand new sun. When you feel life coming down on you, like a heavy weight. When you feel this crazy society, adding to the strain. Take a stroll to the nearest waters edge remember your place. Many moons have risen and fallen long, long before you came. So which way is the wind blowin', and what does your heart say? So follow, follow the sun, and which way the wind blows when this day is done...
