'When you begin to touch your heart or let your heart be touched, you begin to discover that it's bottomless, that it doesn't have any resolution, that this heart is huge, vast and limitless. You begin to discover how much warmth and gentleness is there, as well as how much space. Your world seems less solid, more roomy and spacious. The burden lightens.'
~Pema Chodron, in Start Where You Are
May your heart be touched today.
I want to let you know that my heart was touched deeply by all the responses I got to my last post - in the comments, and via email and Facebook. What a beautiful, wise woman you are, dear reader. It amazes me what you have survived, how strong and loving your heart is, what courage you have, what creativity and gentleness. Thanks for being here, and I'm so happy if I can bring a little extra beauty or inspiration to your life.
Today, whether you are with a partner, a friend, or just with yourself, and whether you are happy or sad to see this day, I hope you can love yourself deeply and give yourself exactly what your heart needs.
