Practice opening your heart

I watched an extended whanau at the estuary. The tide was high. Water flowed swiftly around an old concrete plinth. Young people swam out to the plinth, climbed to the top and then leapt out in faith and sheer delight into the salty waters below. This family opened its heart and soul and body and fully participated in the moment.

Perhaps we can all practice opening our hearts to joy; to delight; to pause; to mystery; to mindfulness; to gratitude; to leaps of faith; to the present moment; to the gift of life.
