How to keep your Heart Open
How to keep your Heart Open.
By Peter Caughey
I had a beautiful conversation with a friend the other day. It was about getting hurt if you have your heart open. I would like to share about this as there may be some benefit in it for you as well.
I hear you talk about your experience about having your heart open and having a sensation of it being crushed.
I sometimes think it’s not our heart being hurt but rather the stories of how we think people should be and act, and it’s our belief in that story that makes us feel hurt.
I’m definitely not saying you didn’t experience what you did. I’m just suggesting there could be another way to see our reactions to what people say and apparently do to us. I’m also not saying there aren’t some not so nice people in the world, and that by hurting other people they feel better about themselves or by finding fault is someone else it makes them feel better to take away their own pain. I have done this myself and I think most of us have at one time or another. Maybe they aren’t really nasty, but just angry and hurt.
It’s a crazy world we live in. I am constantly trying to make sense out of my own behaviour sometimes let alone others. And yes people can seem to act cowardly and not return messages or calls but people often want to avoid confrontation or whatever other reason they have. But remember it’s not about you. It’s just their way of dealing with the situation. It’s hard to know the real reason, people just do what people do, just like we do.
So what I do that helps me is to have no expectation of people, and trust people to be exactly who they really are. We just do what we do, right or wrong, good or bad. I believe our true characters are not necessarily what we say, but what we do. I believe actions always reveal our true character and even if our actions appear to be good, the truth will emerge eventually. We can’t hide who we really are forever.
I would say leave your heart open for yourself, and for your connection to Nature and Heaven and don’t worry about people hurting your heart. They can’t. They only can if you think they can.
