You have to keep breaking
your heart until it opens.
But listen to me. For one moment quit being sad. Hear blessings dropping their blossoms around you.
Reason is powerless in the expression of love.
Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find all the barriers
within yourself that you have built against it.
Very little grows on jagged rock.
Be ground.
We are pearls on the sea,
we are all present therein; else, why does
wave upon wave surge from the sea of the heart?
It’s good to leave each day behind,
Like flowing water, free of sadness.
Yesterday is gone and its tale told.
Today new seeds are growing.
When you go through a hard period,
When everything seems to oppose you,
When you feel you can’t bear even one minute,
never give up
Because it is the time and place that the course will divert.
Love is from the infinite and
will remain until eternity.
Stop the words now.
Open the window in the center of your chest,
and let the spirits fly in and out.
