An Open Heart Is The Only Door That Love Can Walk Through

May 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 77

It's a challenge to love with ALL your heart that so many do not understand, for its focus and work you must do every day to commit to your heart's only plan;

To know that the truth of each feeling is more vital than what one is faking, is what guides the worthwhile commitment and the courage for this undertaking;

I, like many, lived life through denial where one's fear got to call all the shots, but screening through fear's not authentic and it causes too many subplots;

It prevents any genuine knowing of the who, what or where you're about, and the only thing left for the viewing is the mask one is wearing throughout;

It takes years to uncover the layers of the fears one creates just to live, all those layers made up of such horrors that keep one an imprisoned captive;

And it keeps one from feeling the magic of the loving and being loved too, for the heart that is carefully guarded couldn't possibly have.. any clue;

So one day when I couldn't go further in a life with such fear in control, I surrendered with utter acceptance and from that day let truth take its toll;

For when taking on truth in its purest form there is no way that fear can survive, because fear and true love are not able to co-exist in one who is alive;

I realized that running from fear every day had postponed any life that was real, and from that day on..I would run INTO fear like a bull who feared not what he'd feel;

It was scary of course and I sought any help that could keep me on track not to fail, for the one thing I wanted the most out of life was to FEEL what true love would entail;

I practiced the saying 'one day at a time' as the pain of my horrors dissolved, and I learned that one doesn't die trying when one's heart and soul's grief is involved;

But it does take conviction and courage to face all one's fears deep inside, and one MUST want to fight to know TRUE LOVE and especially when humbling one's pride;

This process of finding one's core truth is a journey one watches unfold, and in spite of the pain one must walk through it's a new life you get to behold;

I remember before feeling hollow and I wondered if everyone did, but as I unraveled those layers that feeling 'hollow' became more 'solid;'

I noticed the panic was lessened I noticed I saw the world more, I also felt so much more grounded than the edginess I felt before;

I felt more compassion where fear used to be and I found I could listen more clearly, I felt a new calm that I never had known and I treasured these findings most dearly;

I suddenly saw a new person who could FEEL where she once was pure ice, and I found more control in my actions and could make all my choices concise;

I still found my feelings of anger or anything else one might feel, but they weren't of a horrible nature and they seemed much more centered and real;

And with time and more practice of feeling I found a new friend in my heart, and I learned I could share myself freely without feeling my world fall apart;

Which is why I now choose to be open with as much love as I can breathe in, and forgive and forget all misgivings so my heart can start loving again;

And when your heart's door is so open it's not hard to watch someone walk in, who impresses your heart with their magic from the moment you shake hands with him;

This magic is new to your heart's song and you wouldn't have known what to do, with this wonderful feeling of loving if you hadn't changed how fear ruled you;

And I'm thrilled that I mustered the courage to heal and thus set my heart free, for if I had not then I couldn't feel the love that I now feel daily;

All these years in my heart has sure shown me what unconditional love really takes, and although it still takes great conviction it's a treasure I will not forsake;

I am lucky that I get to say this when many..never get the chance to, for the love that I feel in my heart every day is because... of how much... I love you...
