To truly live through the goodness of our hearts, we must learn to connect Earth (our body) with Heaven (our mind). Grounding tends to be easy for us since we are Earthly creatures, it’s just a matter of remembering to do so. What is harder is releasing our dualistic mind and the labels that go along with it.
We as humans have this tendency to protect the heart because that is the most vulnerable part of us, the most tender. Because of this tenderness, we often feel the need to build a wall around it in order to protect it. We can go so far as to protect it from even ourselves. The more we feel the need to shield ourselves from pain and suffering, the more roadblocks we set that impedes us on our path to our higher selves.
