Break Open

“It is only through letting our heart break that we discover something unexpected: the heart cannot actually break, it can only break open. When we feel both our love for this world and the pain of this world – together, at the same time – the heart breaks out of its shell. To live with an open heart is to experience life full-strength.”

John Welwood in "The Broken-Hearted Warrior and the Renewal of the World."

This is my new life revelation.  I am experiencing life at full-strength.  Broken open.  Shells dissolving.  Barriers fading.  Why is so much of life spent bottled up?  I believe now that the bottles that bind us should be smashed against a brick wall; if not to break us open, then at least to wake us up.
