Test of Metal

Real strength is not measured in the body. Each body has different strengths and weaknesses, they are incomparable. One body could be weak from disease for an entire lifetime, or the healthiest and strongest of bodies could be instantly destroyed from the impact of a bus. 

 

Strength is not measured in the mind. Intelligence is relative and we all have something different to offer the intellectual table. The most intelligent mind can be outwitted, the most stable mind can broken with despair. The “strongest” personalities can suffer with depression and anxiety. 

 

So measure the strength in the heart. The heart can be broken over and over again yet if fixed correctly can get stronger and stronger. The more it is broken the more it can be reinforced with compassion and empathy. As we experience, so we understand what others go through.

“You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.” – Rumi

 

Love is the strongest power we have and it is abundantly available. Love more. Yes you can. 

 

Be strong my love. We are all in it together and can measure our strength in numbers. 

 

Recovery from anything is recovering compassion for every broken body, mind and heart.
