We each have a wise and a passionate heart, with a shell built around itto keep it from breaking that keeps it from living.

The spiritual path is breaking that shell and unfolding that heart.

To love truly is not to love others more, or to love self more, or even to love God more, but to love life more,

to love the life of the heart more than the life of the shell.

The greatest act of love is to do what you fear to do, to say what you fear to say, to think what you fear to think, and to feel what you fear to feel.

The greatest act of wisdom is to live without easy answers, or even without answers at all, in order to live with more heart.
