touching someone else,
full of enjoyment
just like a kid
in the school-yard
trying so hard.
on attention seeking behaviour in adults
our hearts are so distant now.
they can’t hear the beat,
they too far.
sound of the Heartbeat,
they used to beat
The distance grows
the Heart gripped by fear.
Fear of losing that
that is home.
losing home ..
must find a way
and so ..

You might be doing all the right things and the best you can for your relationship, but even doing the best you can is not enough. In fact, doing is never enough, if you neglect Being. The ego knows nothing of Being, but believes you will eventually be saved by doing. If you are in the grip of the ego, you believe that doing more and more you will eventually accumulate enough “doings” to make yourself complete at some point in the future. You won’t.
You will only lose yourself in doing. How do you bring Being into your life and relationships? You are a human being. Mastery of life is not a question of control, but of finding balance between human and Being. Human is form and Being is formless.
From pages 103-105 Role playing, the many faces of the Ego – A New Earth book by Eckhart Tolle
Just wanted to share a moment in the book that particularly moved me.
When you walk thru a beautiful botanical garden, you feel open and light, you feel love, you see beauty. You don’t judge the shape and the placement of every leaf. The leaves are of all sizes and shapes and they face every which way and that is what makes them beautiful.
What if you felt that way about people?
Add yoga mat, music and a candle. I would use it for opening my heart once gain, in privacy, securely. I would lie on my back, bend my knees and place my feet flat on the ground. My palms flat on the ground above my shoulders. I would take a deep breath, pressing into my palms, lifting my head, shoulders, and hips off the mat, straightening my arms and legs. The wheel pose – The Heart opener. I feel exposed, vulnerable, weak.
An open heart in my life, means not afraid to love, to share, to open your heart. Which also can be difficult or dangerous if you have closed yourself off for protection against emotional pain. An open heart is beautiful creation. Allows you to willingly give and receive love. I’m opening up in way that feels safe and secure, at my own pace, here in my breathing room.
