The heart is part of relative life. In relative life, nothing is always. Hearts are designed to sometimes feel open, and other times feel closed. This is how we know what feels right to engage with and what feels wrong to engage with. I think what matters is how open we are to what our heart actually feels. When our heart says no, but we say yes, that always brings trouble. When our heart says yes but we say no, that too brings trouble, as well as regret. But when we are aware of what our heart is feeling and when we align ourselves with that truth in each moment, we experience flow and awakening.
