Keep your heart open

“Everyone knows firsthand that life is messy and painful, beautiful and unpredictable. The endless practice is keeping our heart open to the whole of it.” ~Mark Nepo

Sometimes I think that learning to keep our hearts open to love, to others, and to life as a whole is the main lesson we are here to learn. Over and over again, I find myself prying my closed off heart open because it’s just too easy to shut down in a self-protective stance that is ultimately life-denying.
