Like Rapunzle this heart is locked in a castle. Is it really too precious to allowed out in the world to experience life, love and loss?
Is that how you want to live?
Guarding your heart is natural, especially after you’ve been hurt, but it will not give you the life you desire.
You have the keys to the castle. Have Courage – Liberate yourself!
One thought on “30. The Guarded Heart”
What a beautiful painting! I remember a Buddhist teacher talking about being aware of when your heart is open or closed. To be mindful of the rhythms of the heart with kindness and understanding would be a gentle way of holding our emotional life.
