“[In order to maintain a heart connection,] feed it with openness in order to experience the joy that is always present.
“Joy is like a meta-emotion that other emotions are floating on. Joy is like a lake, and other emotions are like sailboats on the lake. An open heart has a lightness and a lack of attachment to emotion, so it is free to transform as it is expressed, not be held in a cage. Even fear can have a lightness, like clouds moving across the sky. Gifts arrive unexpectedly. Live life openly in order to experience the gifts that arrive.”
