We spend much of our time in our head, perhaps afraid to just stop and smell the flowers. But when you do, open heart living becomes possible. All you need to do is take a few minutes here and there, throughout the day.
Open your heart, shift your focus to it and put yourself into the loving care of the universe or God, whichever you feel more comfortable doing.
Freely give and receive through your heart, appreciate the many connections you have with people you love and indulge in the strength these connections give you.
Don’t forget, your heart is smart and wise. Listen to it. That’s how open heart living starts. If you try it, you’ll grow calmer, stronger, and happier.
