There are some things that cannot be
learned through the mind,
such as innocence, kindness,
These can only be learned
through the heart in its fullness.
When these are missing in life,
the soul may choose to make up for it
by limiting the mind so that
qualities of the heart
can have more space to live.
We must learn to be unafraid of limitation.
We must learn to trust the wisdom of the soul
in choosing limitation so that greater life
may be possible.
What looks to outer eyes like
constriction and loss,
may, to inner eyes,
be an expansion of the soul.
