An instrument of peace

An instrument of peace

“The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace.” ~Carlos Santana

How much do you prioritize owning an open heart? Do you act like it’s worth more to you than anything else you own?

How well are you able to be an instrument of peace? How much effort do you put into becoming that?

The world would be a better place if we all prioritized both of these so much higher than we do.

“If our hearts are ready for anything, we are touched by the beauty and poetry and mystery that fill our world.” ~Tara Brach

We fear keeping our hearts open in this world because we don’t want to be hurt, but an open heart also allows us to be touched by all of the beauty and wonder and joy this world has to offer. How open is your heart?
