When your heart is broken by love you might think it is the end of the world. Certainly you feel very badly and may wish bad things on yourself or the one who broke your heart. But wait. A heart cannot be broken unless it has been taken out of its shallow world of separate self and brought into the world of the truer, and more real self that has experienced oneness. Most of us, outside of love, go around in the world of dualism. Everything is separate, mundane, ordinary, and unsatisfying. There is never enough "more" to fill us up. Then you fall in love. Suddenly, your are surfeited with more then enough. You experience a deeper sense of self. You see everything as if for the first time in all their beauty. You are happy. Only love can do this, show you a way of seeing and being that is always possible. Love unlocks the possible. The broken heart means that you at least have had this wonderful experience of life in depth. So I rejoice in the women who broke my heart. They gave me a great gift and for a time I was enough for them. Spiritual depth is to be in love with the world around me, to see people even as they may not see themselves. May my actions toward and with them give them a glimpse of The All that is within them.
