Let’s Not Be Careless With Our Hearts

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

This is my pre-amble from the bottom of my heart to all the friends, family, lovers and community that share this path with me.

My motto these days is, “don’t be careless with people’s hearts and don’t let anyone be careless with yours.”

 

 

What does it mean to care?

What does it mean to be careful with someone’s heart?

 

When I reach out to you to connect and tell you I CARE

…and you respond, reciprocate, and call back

You are being careful with my heart and yours.

When you don’t respond, reciprocate, or call back,

You are being careless with my heart…and possibly yours as well.

 

When I ask you to join me for dinner or lunch and you happily accept

…and we share the intimacy of exchange and connection

You are being careful with my heart and yours.

When you don’t show up with any communication nor for any apparent reason

You are being careless with my heart and possibly yours as well.

 

When I share with you my intimate struggles and successes 

…and you walk with me through these highs and lows with an open heart

You are being careful with my heart and yours.

When you demean my struggles and successes as if they were nothing of importance to you or to me,

You are being careless with my heart….and possibly yours as well.

 

When you share your journey with me and I share mine with you

…and walk forth in a supportive partnership

You are being careful with my heart and yours.

When you question my presence as if I could only have an ulterior motive in walking with you on this journey

You are being careless with my heart….and possibly yours as well.

 

When you DO NOT treat me, ALL OF ME

This Body

This Mind

And my Sweet Soul and the compilation of who I am in this world.

 

With RESPECT

You are being careless with my heart…and possibly yours as well.

 

When I continue to go to YOU after more than three instances of hurtful or neglectful actions as listed above

…Then I am BEING careless with MY heart.

 

I have been blessed with this spirit encased in this temple and I am its caretaker.

You and I cannot afford to be CARELESS with such gifts.

 

I want so badly to love all of you and express it

Authentically and genuinely with such grandeur

I want to receive your LOVE and affection with the same intensity.

 

Let’s lay down the armor we put up to escape from the world to protect ourselves

Then maybe we can learn not to be CARELESS with each other’s hearts.
