How does our heart "close"? How do we get "hurt"?
Our heart closes as a result of us experiencing "hurt". We all experience "hurt" when we do not feel a resonance of the love, which flows through us, from people we love.
As a baby or young child we get hurt when our heart is open and we feel love – and the heart of our father and / or mother is closed (because they are
Likewise, WE are hurting others, if their heart is open and they (e.g.
our children) feel love for us and our heart is closed (because we are hurt).

Sure, we can experience "peace of mind", through meditation, being in nature, being with friends, listening to music we love, but it does not mean we have healed what is in us, and it does not mean we truly feel love!
Peace of mind simply means we do not feel anger, we do not feel fear, etc., during the time we are distracting ourselves or we manage to "control" or "calm" our mind.

for ALL people and ALL experiences of our life."
When our heart is closed, we are unable to feel love and compassion and therefore
we feel separate from love, God – and we experience "fear".
We then use our mind to "survive" and be "in control" in a world of
"fear" (a world where we cannot feel love and compassion because our heart is
In spirit (love, God, the energy of all), we communicate solely through FEELINGS.
Our feeling heart is our connection to this energy of love, God of all.
