The 91-year-old neighbor who taught us this trick said her tree sprouts new growth in February.
What clogs up our own openness?
We try to protect our feelings, our hearts, and our sense of self. We each have our own methods--irritation, anxiety, denial, or many others.
We can warm up our heart, perhaps simply by placing our hand on our heart. "Yes, yes. There, there now."
Our heart melts, and we too can have the resilience of new (personal) growth.
