Here is a meditation on the fires of the heart.
When life squeezes you – and it will, let yourself not be afraid of what arises within you. Notice the ‘no’, the ‘not now’, the ‘how could this be possible?’, the righteous indignation spilling out of you. Breathe, and breathe again. Let the flames in your heart direct you towards the situation, to work for a solution to whatever dilemma life has brought your way. For the fires of love hold the ultimate protective energy. They strengthen and heal. They know the capacity to forgive. They burn with the boundlessness of joy and the Infinite.
