Opening ourselves to unexpected insight and love
Insight and love parallel each other. Just as an open mind is required for insights to emerge, an open heart is needed for love to manifest.
The challenge is that both insight and love cannot be manufactured. They can be stimulated or cultivated, but they usually visit us like a serendipitous encounter. For love and insight to visit us, we must first understand ourselves and the thinking and feeling traps we usually fall into that may prevent us from being open.
It is a dance between our willingness to be vulnerable and our need to protect ourselves. But just as dancing may make a fool out of ourselves at times, the right timing can feel like grace – where everything falls into place perfect harmony with ourselves and those around us.
Mark 8:14-21. Do you not yet understand or comprehend? Are your hearts hardened?
