I've been contemplating the lines from Michael Franti's song One Step Closer To You:
Till I let go of a broken heart
I let go to an open heart
My open heart allows me love and love dissipates all my suffering.
I am trapped in this cycle of continual choices as I struggle with the choices of Another.
Broken Heart--Open Heart
Shutting Down--Letting Go
Beyond ideas of right and wrong there is a field, I'll meet you there.--Rumi
