It was quite amazing for me when I first realised the implications of closing myself down in any way to another person.
I used to happily think that I could be kind and loving to those people it felt safe and supportive to be with and yet spurn those who were challenging me in any way.
I thought it was okay to just pick and choose who I shared my love and acceptance with.
But when the realisation trickled into my awareness that in doing so, I was actually closing down to myself and everyone else I was relating to, I awoke with a jolt.
And I knew completely in my heart that it just wasn’t possible to selectively share love in my heart. It wasn’t possible to pretend any more that I was being kind and loving and yet harboured ill-feelings for those who were reflecting things back to me that I just didn’t want to look at.
This was all about me evolving and staying present to the fact that love simply is. Consciously choosing to close down the flow is equivalent to being cut off from life.
And with each day I am grateful for the feedback I receive from all those who interact with me, showing me where I am unaware of how I’ve slipped into closing down.
All it takes it to become fully present and acknowledge the pain. Give thanks for the message and breathe into your heart, allowing it to fully open. And experience your beingness in its fullest.
Today I am choosing a fully open heart.
