To remain behind the walls of fearful or immature defensiveness is to completely limit our potential for intimacy, success, and expanding happiness.
The heart opens the instant we are willing for it to be open. Just a little willingness, given to the Divine within us, and miracles begin to unfold. Look at the following words from author and spiritual teacher, Paul Ferrini, and see if you can identify where you are in the process.
There is nothing mysterious about what opens the heart. Acceptance does.
There is nothing mysterious about what closes the heart. Judgment does.
To open you heart, you must be willing to be present with whatever is happening here and now. You just need “to be.”
Be with yourself. Be with others. Be with God. It is enough.
