Because it’s not unconditional.
Your mind keeps changing,
The world keeps changing,
Until you decide nothing is worth closing your heart over you won’t have that lasting peace and energy.
So if you have a reason why your heart is currently open, I feel bad for you.
And if you have a reason why your heart is currently closed, don’t worry, everything changes.
But one day I woke up and realized I can’t just be at the whim of the world and be open when things are going on that are “right” and have a closed heart when something occurs that is “wrong.”
I instead wanted to learn how to keep my heart open no matter what passed before me, and it’s just like quitting cigarettes.
There’s a million ways to quit smoking: patches, gum, therapy…..but in the end you stop smoking by not putting cigarettes in your mouth.
The same is true here; you learn to stop closing your heart no matter what, simply by not closing your heart when you have an inclination to.
