The heart-opening passion of true love is only achievable if you’re vulnerable.
The fact that we are sensitive is human nature.
To acknowledge our humanity, our secrets, our ability to be hurt by the world, and then trust in God, is that same open heart of true faith.
In these times, where our control over what we thought was a stable world is lost, we become vulnerable.
In that loss is gain.
I cried today out of the blue, when I heard a song after a meditation, a combination of environment and thoughts that released that valve that opened my heart.
I knew that I had a life in which I was more concerned about myself, now that I look at my history, and in knowing the loss of the potential trueness I could have lived through those years hurts.
To be honest with everyone about what you feel and what you do.
To be a changed person who now has the strength to resist those small things that mean a lot.
If one were to rewind, would the loss of those mistakes lose their lessons? Probably.
Thus it is also important to remember that whatever losses we have in these troubled times, that it has a purpose.
God has a reason, and even when the loss is great it has a greater reward in something resulting from it, for He sees the big picture and we are small in the universe.
Love itself, and the acts that convey loving, all add up, and are the greatest things we can hope for ourselves, for the ones we care about.
Take a moment to reflect on why you feel anxious. What is being lost. And what love can do to fix that.
