An Open Heart

We dream of hope, we dream of change, of fire, of love, of death, and then it happens, the dream becomes real. And the answer to the quest, this need to solve life’s mysteries finally shows itself, like the glowing light of the new dawn. So much struggle, for meaning, for purpose, but in the end we find it only in each other. Our shared experiences of the fantastic, and the mundane. The simple, human need to find the kindred, to connect, and to know in our hearts that we are not alone.

Life is a myriad of uncontrollable events. A milestone you earnestly plan, only to melt away in a single heartbeat. Plan a day to share with people you care most on a very special day; but not everyone can meet you in the same perspective all the time. It may not be really special for most and so you are left twiddling your thumbs, suppressing the eagerness for your plan, slowing down your heart rate, rubbing the goosebumps left on your skin, laying in wait… trying to make sense of what happened, or what didn’t happen…

But does it need to make sense? Does it have to be justified with a reason?

Most times we spend so much energy making sense of it all. In truth, we want to feel alright about it, we want to be assured that it wasn’t all for nothing. How we incredulously rate ourselves on the scale of importance…

When such plans fall apart, it is an enlightening opportunity how we see our own self, not how we think others see us. It is not about your plans being shelved aside because you are insignificant; it is actually the reverse – how people know in their hearts that if there is one soul left on earth who holds the most spacious heart of kindness and understanding, it belongs to you…

They only need to do their thing, grumpiness or whatever it may be.
And they will come back…
Because in the end we find it only in each other…
… our loving hearts.
