Keep Breaking Your Heart Till It Opens
So many of us have hearts that have hardened and which block us from giving and receiving love freely and ultimately from experiencing the most joyous life possible. This hardening comes from all the unreleased emotional traumas we've experienced in our lives. I think this is what Rumi was referring to when he said, "You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens." This is a bit of a play on words because breaking your heart is what can harden it, but once it's hardened, it can also require something strong to finally crack open the wall around your heart.
May I live each and every day with an open heart,
