We all need now to learn and do the hardest of all work if we are to pull through these dark times.The hardest work of the work of opening the heart and deciding to never allow it to close again.It is hard because it hurts. As a natural instinctive reaction, we close our hearts to protect them. But once closed, there is no happiness in the world anymore. Because all happiness in the world flows from our opened hearts. So we must learn ways of bypassing or neutralizing that protective instinctive action of closing our heart for protection.Perhaps the easiest ways to open our hearts is feeling-thinking of our dearest ones whom we completely love and then slowly transfer the same feeling-thinking, one by one, to all our relations. As I look inside the mind, the human heart disconnected mind, I see nothing but hate and darkness. Actually hate is the darkness. There is no solution of light to be found inside the dark mind of hate. The light flows only from an opened heart. Therefore, whatever the risk, whatever the pain, the heart must be opened and allowed to speak.
