Let it Break Your Heart

Reaching for the stars means that you might lose your balance. 

Spreading your wings to fly forces you into the wind. 

And loving yourself enough to follow your truth, your yearnings and your higher callings might break your heart. 

Do not be be afraid of the wind. Do not fear losing your balance. Do not shy from the broken heart.

It is the journey for which you are here. Not the destination. 

Embrace it. 

Let it break you open. Let it throw you off balance. Let it carve a valley so deep, a container so wide, and a well so spacious that your capacity for joy and love can be that much greater. 

“And if the world has ceased to hear you, say to the silent earth: I flow. To the rushing water, speak: I am.” ~ Let This Darkness Be a Bell Tower, Rainer Maria Rilke
