Welcome to Big Heart Living!
We will be exploring and promoting thoughts that can help us all live a “Big Heart Life,” a life that embraces:
a peaceful mind,
loving thoughts and actions,
a happy life experience,
and makes the world we live in a better place.
It’s time for change. It’s time for us to “get back” ▣ to promoting:
- celebrating diversity
- taking care of one another
- taking care of our planet
There is a time for loving action, and the time is now! (The time is ALWAYS NOW!)
Go BIG ♡
Be BIG ♡
Think BIG ♡
Act with a BIG ♡ and we will…
Live a BIG ♡ Life
…and we will change the world for the better!
There has been a campaign, as of late, to promote fear, separation, and hate, when instead we need to “get back” to promoting LOVE.
We will explore thoughts and ideas to help bring about:
peace, love, happiness, and kindness.
The thoughts on this site will mostly be spiritual thoughts (NOT religious) ▣. But, we will explore thoughts from psychology, folklore, science, or wherever – as long as they help bring about peace, love, and happiness.
We are NOT asking you blindly follow anything we say. ▣
We invite you to explore ideas with us and encourage you to question every thought we present. Try it out. See if any of these ideas feels right to YOU.
Religions are great, but it seems religions can tend to divide us rather than unite us. Here we are working towards uniting all. We accept our differences and embrace what we can learn from one another.
On Big Heart Living, we are open to ALL thoughts and we do not condemn anyone who does not agree with us. We look at all beliefs (though we do make suggestions that have resonated with us), we encourage you to follow your own intuition as you choose YOUR beliefs, and develop your own spiritual thoughts.
This is a core principle of Big Heart Living – YOU are in charge.
YOU choose your beliefs, your thoughts, your actions. YOU choose.
We simply offer ideas you can "try out" and see if they fit you
Although the thoughts on this site are all a reflection of “Unpuzzling Spirituality: An Introduction to Spiritual Thoughts to Create a Big, Happy, Peaceful, and Loving Life (Ages 9 and up),” the copy below is cut and paste from our book, with slight alterations so it makes sense outside of the entire body of work.
Spirituality invites you to draw on your own inner wisdom about the world instead of blindly accepting any answer given. Here we invite you to question any and all of the believes we present. With any of the thoughts in this book [and website], please DON’T just believe and accept them.
Just as you would try on a shirt before you buy it, “try out the belief” - see if it continues to feel right to you, or if you want to refine your thoughts.
As you read, ask yourself:
Does this thought feel right and true?
No? - Keep exploring the topic on your own to find an answer that does feel right to you.
Yes? - Try it out in your day-to-day life. If something happens in life that makes you wonder if it is true – go back and explore that statement again! Tap into your inner guidance - not only the guidance that adults or authority figures around you have provided. (Remember, we are all “works in progress” - even adults.)
Some beliefs that we whole heartedly embrace on this site include:
- Your life is your choice.
- It is up to YOU what to believe in.
Your beliefs are important, for…
- Your beliefs form your thoughts and actions.
- Your thoughts and actions create your life experience.
- Your thoughts and actions influence the world around you.
We are all here on this planet together NOW and equally wanted for the unique contributions we have for our world.
How you influence the world is up to YOU!
But, why not use our time here to …
Think and Act with a BIG ♡
And, you will likely end up …
Living a BIG ♡ life
Your actions ripple out into the world, creating positive change!
We look forward to exploring empowering ideas with you and changing the world for the better!
Living a Big Heart life can be whatever YOU make of it.
To us, a Big Heart Life Is:
you choosing to think loving thoughts
you choosing to take actions that are helpful and loving to all
you being your unique wonderful self and sharing your gifts with the world
you choosing to see the world through loving eyes
you seeing that you’re part of something larger than yourself and working to make a difference in the world

When your heart is overflowing with love, gratitude, and joy you are living with a BIG ♡!
So, ask yourself:
Are YOU thinking with your small heart or your BIG ♡?
What could you gain if you did?
