With extreme events where we feel lost or our heart gets broken, we are faced with the choice:
to open or to close.
Do you open your heart wider to receive the healing process?
Or do you shut it down, off, closed to protect yourself from being hurt again?
In shutting down, the hurt will keep presenting. It will persist.
In opening, yes it feels wild and raw and out of our control, but we can ride that wave right back into the shore of our own true heart. And we find love there.
Stay open. Stay connected. Be willing to be wounded by life.
It’s worth it.
