Jewels of dark and light

It is not an error that you have been born a sensitive human being, with an open nervous system and a heart that is sometimes raw and broken. Your vulnerability is not a mistake, but a portal into aliveness.

Yes, it is shaky here, but it is surging with the qualities of love. Somehow you have remembered your heart-vow to be alive, which has taken precedence over comfort, safety, and knowing how it is all going to turn out.

While the world may try to convince you to mend the brokenness and to resolve the contradictions, look carefully to see if this response is in resonance with the vow you have taken. For inside the core of the broken is a unique form of light, placed inside your to reveal something the world has forgotten.

Hidden inside the broken and the abandoned are jewels of dark and of light, and the unfolding mystery of separation and union. But this revelation is not perceivable by means of ordinary vision. Here there is no bias for oneness over multiplicity or joy over heartbreak. In the center, all energies and experiences are revealed to be the path in disguise, utterly valid and worthy of your care and attention.

The forms of love will always dissolve, for this is their nature. But love itself is that which never comes and goes. While the path of the heart may not always feel safe, you are the vast space in which all feelings come and go. Take refuge in the warmth and holding of this space, which is overflowing with the qualities of mystery, attunement, and pure aliveness.

There is nothing more safe than that. There is nothing more sacred than that.
