Comforting Thought: We pretend we aren’t vulnerable, but this is an illusion

Baby, You Were Born To Run: Horses From Cave Art to Melbourne Cup

We pretend we aren’t vulnerable, but this is an illusion. We are incarnated in a delicate body, intertwined in the community of life. Our senses have evolved to be exquisitely tuned to the ever-changing world of pleasure and pain, sweet and sour, gain and loss. Love and freedom invite us to turn toward the world. They offer the gifts of a flexible heart, wide enough to embrace experience, vulnerable yet centered.

~ Jack Kornfield
