Open Heart

I just recently saw Barbara Walters piece on 20/20 "A matter of life and death"discussing open heart surgery. Her interviews featured Bill Clinton, Robin Williams and David Letterman among others. Walters said that heart disease is America’s No.1 killer, and that half of the U.S. population will die from it. Each year, half a million Americans have their chests cracked open. With open heart surgery becoming commonplace we can easily envision an open heart as being cut and broken open leaving us vulnerable and weak. Emotionally an open heart can mean just that to many of us as well.

What does it really mean to have an open heart? How many of us are open to this in the fullest sense? Why is there so much congestion in our hearts? An open heart is all about being open to both giving and receiving love. When your heart is fully open you feel deeply. Your soul is connected to the heartbeat of life. In our society rich with materialism, deadlines and competition there is not much time or space to feel deeply. We just can't fully open our hearts to life. The times when we do, we may feel overwhelmed with all the built up energy that has been blocked, like a wave crashing down. To open we need to release those flood gates where we will eventually find the tranquility of lapping waves deep within. Imagine if we all stopped and opened to fully feeling the heartbeat of life for just one instant. The freedom and sudden connectedness to all that is would overcome us. This is what I'm talking about! Open Heart.

Let those random acts of kindness become less random. Let them be deliberate. Make a plan to be open to giving and receiving love. Go back to letting your heart be your guide. Put your heart into what ever you do. An open heart is not weak. An open heart heals. An open heart is beautiful.

Celebrate Valentines Day with an Open Heart. and by all means...
