Vulnerability


El Corazon, by Elsa Mora

I watched a fantastic video on TED today, on vulnerability, which reminded me of a major theme that Pema Chodron speaks about—the beautiful act of opening our hearts to others and to life. I'll let her say it in her lovely eloquent way:

"When you begin to touch your heart or let your heart be touched, you begin to discover that it's bottomless, that it doesn't have any resolution, that this heart is huge, vast, and limitless. You begin to discover how much warmth and gentleness is there, as well as how much space."
