I love this!

“The heart area is, above all, the center of deep feeling and sensitivity. .
.
.
When the heart area is illumined, we have a vibrant sense of the wholeness of life.
.
.
.
What thought divides, the heart unites.
.
.
.
Our argument with reality ends when our attention is deeply seated in the heart.
.
.
It’s not that we become passively resigned.
.
.
Instead, we first accept things as they are and then become available to respond creatively.
.
.
On occasion, the response may be quite fierce and forceful, but it will not carry the residues of personal insult, shame, or self-righteous anger.
.
.
Every situation contains a solution.
.
.
When our attention rests in the heart, we feel our way to the solution with much greater grace and ease.”
