the open heart is the holy grail
i am a student of history. and much of the history i read is quite cruel to say the least. mans inhumanity to man litters the pages of history. history is rife with stories of one group taking advantage of, exploiting, murdering and exterminating other groups all for the sake of wealth and power. sometimes i wish i wasnt drawn to this stuff what is that they say ignorance is bliss ha ha.
my study has led to some positives though. i absolutely put no one on a pedestal and i mean no one. regardless of title i like to get to know the person myself and form my own opinions. the challenge i have is knowing some of the things i do know that have occurred in the past, can i put them aside and live in the present. and at times it can be a challenge
the challenge today we all face as humans is to live open heartedly. to open our hearts to live with kindness and without judgement of others . there are so many voices that would sway us one way or the other. i look at it like this i like to receive kindness from others there fore i will treat others with kindness. it is simple but it works for me
in king arthurs time the legend was that the sword excalibur could only be removed from the rock by the true king. many tried but all failed until arthur himself was able to extract it. in each one of us lies an excalibur within our own hearts. the challenge we each face is to find within ourselves the love, the courage and the faith to remove our own excalibur and to wield that sword for the benefit of others. so the open heart is the holy grail. may we each find it within ourselves and realize the power of love
