The Head That Ruled Over The Heart


A random Australian man, around 60 years old and living permanently in Rote, asked to read our hand the last night we stayed in Rote.  Curious as we are, we opened our palm and our mind to what he would tell us. The first thing he said was “ Oh Shit (silence) …where is your heart-line.” In short, he told us what he saw and what we already knew. We have been living with our heads for the last 34 years while neglecting the wishes of our heart. . His observation was an accurate one and a damn confrontational one as well. Even though he was really objective, we felt compassion as he just could not wrap his head around the fact that the girl standing in front of him taught herself from quite a young age to rely on her intellect and her head for her whole life.

The mirror this man held in front of us was something that triggered quite some emotions. However, most important what stayed behind was the confirmation that quitting our jobs and start to really wander and find the road back to what our heart really wants, was the best decision we made in our life. We are exploring, living and feeling more and more each day.  The journey, experience and emotions we go through while wandering is one we treasure, as it feels good, it feels liberating, to just wander. What this man told us validated that feeling of wandering, we are on the right path.

Then, however the question pops up “And now?” Nothing in particular, we think. His words were merely a beautiful confirmation. A confirmation that we choose the right path, that we need to be aware of the fact that our head is a pretty strong one.  If we want to find true happiness though, we have to start learning how our heart wants to live life instead of what our brains want.

We felt blessed to have met this man. Life is a journey and with each experience we grow. Grow to truly become the person that has been hiding inside and let our hearts rule over our head.
