Opening the Deep Heart

During my meditation sits, my goal is to open my heart, to not think, to find the unworded knowing.

I can get to the no thought space, observing my breath and body sensations intimately.

To be honest, I have no clue what an open heart feels like, how to trust the universe, or feel safe in this world.

The path is not well lit or traveled.

We must have faith, I guess.

It must be very subtle in the beginning.

Is this the path to knowing, healing, or well-being?

Have you opened your heart up after childhood abuse?

Please share?

    Why must I “have faith?” Faith in what? Something mystical? Spiritual? Human?

  2. How else do we expect to heal

    I take action and hope it bears fruit

    I sure am not convinced I will heal especially after 10 years of trying

    PTSD makes us cynical about life, others and healing

    We have to resist

  3. Faith in our effort will bring relief

    So you’ve got ‘faith’ in the active process of resilience? Getting up again and again despite the number of times you’ve been down? That’s faith in oneself. Yes?

  5. I have faith in my actions, not to heal, but to give me best chance for enjoying anything

    My effort is a gift in itself

    I have faith if I do not give up, that is victory

    If I can do it with a decent attitude, a blessing

  6. Opening your heart – even to yourself – is an act of great courage.

  7. I do not know about courage, but it is similar to trying to walk in pitch-black darkness

    You tiptoe and stumble

    And know your in unfamiliar territory
