Love comes heralding the end of your world



It is easy to forget that opening the heart may not actually feel good
But it was never designed to do that
Your heart does not open so that you might experience certain states of consciousness instead of others, so that you can have certain feelings instead of others, so that you can sort your experience into higher and lower, awakened and unawakened, self and no-self, spiritual and non-spiritual; for these biases remain alive only within an environment of fear and distance
Your heart opens so that a crack might appear, to remind you that your dreams of a life of invulnerability are a fantasy; revealing that your vulnerability is the gateway
Love comes heralding the end of your world, and it is through this reorientation of everything you thought you knew that love can finally find its way through
