This week my tiny heart went through a beating. The highs and lows were a bit too much. I feel raw just reeling from the ebbs and flows. I’m honestly still getting used to this type of a ride but I see it as a practice of strengthening. The changes in heart frequency hones and conditions it. Framing it this way doesn’t make it any easier though.
To cap it all off, my Manila-bound flight was suspended in mid air for almost an hour today due to bad weather. The uncertainty was nerve wracking. As if I needed more of it in this already crazy life. Amidst all these I succumbed to open heart meditation practice for solace. It has been most helpful. I treat it as express self care made available simply by touching one’s heart center.
