The greatest potential we have for opening our hearts lies in the opening of our minds. The heart is simply a bank of emotional potential. It’s a vastness of possible experience. We all hold within us the capacity for joy, love, and laughter, but not everyone uses that capacity. In order to use it, we need to reach a unity between heart and mind. In our thoughts, we hold the key to our feelings. In our minds, we hold the key to love. In the wise words of the Buddha: “All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.”
Listen to a Drishti Point Yoga Podcast with author of the Love Mindset, Vironika Tugaleva. Vironika speaks about her own healing journey from self-loathing to self-love, and the myths in our culture that prevent us from understanding and accessing love.
