I can feel the heart opening, after several years of being closed down… And with this opening, there are glimpses of the passion, energy and sense of direction I used to have – during the years before this fallow phase when my heart was wide open.
It is a good lesson for me. When my heart is closed, there is apathy, lack of direction, lack of energy. When it is open, there is passion, direction and fire.
And one way to allow it to open is to live my life for the larger whole, in the service of the larger whole. Not just for myself. To do this benefits “me” tremendously, as well as the larger whole.
