The Heart’s Job by Mark Nepo

“The heart’s job is not to play seesaw with life and death,
with joy and sorrow, with peace and fear.”

“The heart’s job is to stay open to all these territories at once.
Each day, we’re asked to be a conduit:
to keep the heart open to the things that form
while bearing witness to the things that come apart;
including ourselves, especially ourselves.”
Mark Nepo
