We all have a heart. A physical beating heart and an emotional, caring, empathic energetic heart. We all love. We all do things that bring us great joy and open our hearts.
Or do we?
I recently encountered someone who committed what I believe to be a rather heartless act. It’s not anything major (or crime-ridden), but was enough for my eyes to be opened to two things: not everyone is who we think they are and not everyone is doing heart-based activities. It was shocking and sad on many levels for me. Realizing that I do treat everyone as a trusted and loving person is both a gift and a curse, and has caused heartbreak when people leave my life. And I do understand that much of this is my own belief about what is heart-based … the other person may think they are doing an act that is indeed the best heart decision for them.
How do we interact with people in our lives who don’t seem to be living from a heart-based space?
We open our hearts even more. And wider.
In this particular case, the stress caused much cursing, worry, and “omfgwhatareyouthinking?!”. After a short time of this, I realized I can’t judge. I can’t worry. The best thing I can do is open my heart, flood the situation and person with LOVE, and surrender it to God.
When we can realize everyone is a divine being and doing the best they are capable of in each moment, we can see that every situation is as perfect as it needs to be. We can’t change it or control it.
And in the end, it all comes down to Love and opening our hearts. That’s all that matters. People’s choices in life are their own, just as my choices are my own. We may not agree on what’s the right choice, and that’s okay. But when we can just LOVE it all, sometimes, just maybe, a miracle might occur.
