Letting go

People get into a heavy-duty sin and guilt trip, 
feeling that if things are going wrong, 
that means that they did something bad 
and they are being punished. 
That's not the idea at all. 
The idea of karma is that you continually get 
the teachings that you need to open your heart. 
To the degree that you didn't understand in the past 
how to stop protecting your soft spot, 
how to stop armoring your heart, 
you're given this gift of teachings 
in the form of your life, 
to give you everything you need 
to open further."
~Pema Chödrön

Intensity is the desire to receive. 
Open yourself to light and you will become light.
