Many of us are heart wounded. We can’t feel love. Strange, yet true..we live our lonely lives caged in our cubicles of safe self preservation zones because we have stopped exposing ourselves to the cruel world of aggression, chase and fake projections. The wound is too deep and the fear of touching it is scary. What if it bleeds…so we just roam around like automatons in a reflex response of “getting the work done..day by day”
The heart wound if forgotten or covered in fancy robes is still unhealed and starts to bleed everytime we are brazed with unkindness, selfishness and hurt. So, the problem does not go away. Only that we learn to live with it now. During the acute inflammation episodes, we get more heart closed and feel chest tightness and discomfort that we can’t explain to anyone. It just keeps hurting and we just keep covering it..the cycle can be very damaging and explodes in us through a disease in our body or an imbalanced behaviour.
How does one heal the heart wound?
By sitting with it face to face.
By weeping on it till it’s deathlike
Then holding yourself tenderly in self love
And lastly…when it’s healed…you will feel the chest tightness leave you and the heart opening of compassion for all beings. Even the ones that cause you all the hurt. Until you can feel this heart opening, you have to strive to forgive and be grateful even for all the pain. When no striving is needed and the state becomes fluid and effortless in you, know that you have awakened.
Light the wick of the heart wound and awaken to the karuna or compassion that you are. Use the pain well…
