When you look into a baby’s eyes, it feels like you are drawn into the infinite void of the universe. The purity and beauty open your heart and the serenity brings peace to your inner being. Their eyes reflect the state of their hearts – unconditional openness.
Unconditional openness is an innate quality of the heart. When your heart is in a pure, healthy state, it is naturally open. There is nothing to hide, neither is there anything to display. There is no intention to avoid, neither is there intention to seek. There is no need to draw attention, neither is there need to please others. There is no suspicion, neither is there projection. There is no arrogance, neither is there effort to be humble. There is no judging others, neither is there fear of being judged. There is no preference to gain, neither is there aversion to loss. There is no desire for things to go your way, neither is there resistance when things don’t. There is no controlling, neither is there negligence. There is no undue confidence, neither is there fear of the unknown. There is no self-importance, neither is there self-disapproval.
An unconditionally open heart is always aligned with the wisdom of the universe. Just like the universe, it can accommodate all without making a distinction. When your heart is truly open, the world is no long centered around you. Nothing will be manipulated according to your self-interest. Everything is left to the wisdom of the universe. Your heart and the heart of the universe are completely unified.
An open heart is ready to accept and accommodate whatever life brings. Your heart will become a source of great patience, understanding, and love, allowing all things to be what they are. It will be able to transform everything in the most beneficial way, no matter how negative it may seem. Your open heart will turn life into a continuous, smooth flow. You will enjoy true freedom.
Open your heart. This is a way to remove the shaded spectacles you are wearing. With an open heart, you will be able to experience life to the full with nothing being filtered or twisted. Look at the world with an open heart. Your eyes will become the void of the universe. When you look into your own eyes, you will be moved by their purity and beauty.
