Expanded Heart.

If you pour a handful of salt into a cup of water, the water becomes undrinkable.  But if you pour the salt into a river, people can continue to draw the water to cook, wash, and drink.  The river is immense, and it has the capacity to receive, embrace, and transform. 
When our hearts are small, our understanding and compassion are limited, and we suffer.  We can’t accept or tolerate others and their shortcomings, and we demand that they change.  But when our hearts expand, these same things don’t make us suffer anymore.  We have a lot of understanding and compassion and can embrace others.  We accept others as they are, and then they have a chance to transform.

Are you listening?

Are you listening?
I'm all ears this morning listening to one of my girl friend struggling stories. I've learn but still have to resist myself from jumping in on their sentences, saving them from actually finishing, or talk over them, allowing what they do manage to get out to be lost or altered in transit.  Instead, I have been tought to wait, so they have to keep going. And at the end of that conversation I ask myself "Ina, have you been listening? Were you been a good listener?"
"We have two ears and one mouth, so we should listen more than we say." Zeno of Citium

Let shit go.

The most important piece of advice my past has given me is to enjoy life while we're living it. We can never know which moments can be the one that we will remember and when happiness will hit us.
So I am open for anything at anytime. I'll not fret over the past, but I'll learn from it. And I'm making new memories everyday.
FOR THERE IS  ONLY ONE LIFE AND ONE CHANCE. So I'm letting shits go. *ngibrit ke toilet*
