Valentine's Day Message - What Barriers Have You Built Up Within Yourself?
Rumi is one of my favorite poets and philosophers. Reading his words always inspires me to move beyond my comfort zone, beyond my fears, and beyond my understanding.
I came across this thought-provoking message recently and thought it was worth sharing this week for Valentine's Day. I find it to be such a true and profound insight.
I think all of us, at some point in our lives, build up barriers in response to (and to protect ourselves from) being disappointed, hurt, rejected or excluded. These internal barriers become a part of us over time and we can forget they are even there.
They typically stay in place much longer than we need them and they can hold us back from letting the fullness of love into our lives.

Happy Valentine's Day,
