You Have To Keep Breaking Your Heart Until It Opens.
deep in the heart….deep in the groove……deep in love’s finest grace……
If we open our eyes, our minds
and our hearts, we will find that
this world is a magical place.
How did the rose ever open its heart
and give to this world all its beauty.
It felt the encouragement of light against its Being,
otherwise, we all remain too frightened.….Hafiz
Hafiz reminds us that it’s this world that needs us- not the one we imagine we may create some day, nor the one we nostalgically imagine once was- but this world, the one we have right now in all its messiness and spectacular beauty. And he tells us how to share what we are- not so much by teeth-gritting will power, but by letting encouragement calm our fears and help us open our hearts. What encourages you? Good to ask ourselves as we move through our day: How can I encourage those around me to be all that they are? Am I seeing and receiving the encouragement others are offering me? Happy Valentine’s Day weekend dear friends- may we offer and receive the light of encouragement to each other….Oriah Mountain Dreamer
