I don’t need to tell you that you should be careful with the vows that you make; intending to keep them makes your word strong, giving you a sense of integrity.
What I want to stress today is that if you do break your vow, you can come to your heart again. You can be forgiven. You can have a chance to begin anew, right now. Even if you have broken your vows 10,000 times — and my mathematical mind reminds me that would require breaking one vow a day for over 27 years.
Even if that’s been your life, you can start anew. Your heart holds the key. Energize your heart with your breath and attention, and you will experience renewal of body, mind, heart, and soul.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please share a comment here.
Yours in the One Heart,
P.S. I recommend The Essential Rumi for all those who’d like to explore the wonderful poetry of Jelalludin Rumi.
