Breathing to the Core

For many years I've heard spiritual clichés about opening ones heart and about being mindless. It's like a fad to catch onto the latest spiritual buzz words and self identify with them.
But... are we truly willing to pause and listen to the rhythms of our heart?
Do you know what your heart feels like when you are hurting, when you are vulnerable, when you are softly open to all that is?
Do you genuinely feel into your heart and breathe with the tightness, the blocks, the constrictions?
Do you offer loving kindness to these subtle shifts and changes that fluctuate within?
Do you honor yourself in these ways?
Or do you just say your heart is open, you're present and continue to play out painful duality games?
Do you know what it feels like to have a beautifully sensitive open heart that is willing to continue to open, tenaciously, so that you and those around can benefit from your authentic nature. Is it easier to be tough, to have a protective shell over the heart, to open and close based on ego agendas or are you truly willing to risk feeling all that is present.
Waking up is being aware sensitively, nakedly, authentically, not just conveniently in all this human experiencing. For now it is for the pioneers, the brave and perhaps at some point for everyone. There is never a lack of opportunity to be present to this.
We avoid this out of a fear of pain. Breaking through pain means being with the core, or root of what is arising. This is true breakthrough.
Finding ways to ease, or escape the pain is more like cutting the top off the dandelion, you can be assured it will return, pretty quickly, even stronger than before. Then you will need more of whatever your 'escape of choice' is.
Presence brought to the pain equals breakthrough it's really that simple. If it's complicated it's because the mind is running a repetitive story about it. Pause, drop the story and breathe through waht is arisingf. What's left, what's always left...presence.
