DARE TO FEEL AUDIO: Walking with an Open Heart
In these moments, the work is to feel the kinks and knots in your heart, and to sit with them and tend to them and breathe with them.
It has been said by many a mystic that it is a warrior’s path to walk with an open heart in this world.
And it is in the seeming unsafety of staying with the feelings of your open heart, and keeping it open, that you break free.
In these moments, the work is to feel the kinks and knots in your heart, and to sit with them and tend to them and breathe with them. To feel your stubbornness. Your inability to open. Your fear of commitment. Your fear of seeming needy. Your avoidance masked as “self-sufficiency.”
And, slowly, you will begin to see them simply as waves of experience, of karma, or as remnants of past moments in your life that are coming up to be burned away on the path of your soul’s liberation from fear and suffering.
That which was once so hard will become simple when it is approached as your daily spiritual practice, the practice you live into your whole life: living from an open heart and accepting all of your emotions as passing moments to feel into, without pushing them away.
