“The human heart is exquisitely fragile. Our judgements need to be gentle, our understanding deep, and our forgiveness wide.” ~Ron Rolheiser
This is so true of how we should treat others. It’s also true of how we should be treating ourselves!
“Your heart is the size of an ocean. Go find yourself in its hidden depths.” ~Rumi
We so often underestimate the depths and the wisdom contained in our own hearts. We go looking outside ourselves for what can only be found in the depths of our own hearts. Dive deep and you may be surprised at what riches you find.
“All the windows of my heart I open to the day.” ~John Greenleaf Whittier
What would it mean for you to open all the windows of your heart to the day today?
“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?
“You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.” ~Rumi
Life breaks our hearts for us so often. Do you use those occasions as opportunities to open your heart? Or do you close it down? The choice is yours.
