What the heart cares about

December 31, 2013


“You don’t measure love in time. You measure
love in transformation. Sometimes the longest
connections yield very little growth, while the briefest
of encounters change everything.

The heart doesn’t
wear a watch- it’s timeless. It doesn’t care how long
you know someone. It doesn’t care if you had a 40-
year anniversary if there is no juice in the connection.

What the heart cares about is resonance. Resonance
that opens it, resonance that enlivens it, resonance that
calls it home. And when it finds it, the transformation
begins…” ~ Jeff Brown

How true this is. The heart is all about juice–juice in the connection. That’s the driving force of love, what provides its vibrational resonance. This is why relationships of convenience are so empty and why relationships based on passion alone burn out quickly.

And as complex.

Jeff Brown is a brilliant writer on love and life. I loved his book, Soulshaping, and I’m going to love his new book on love when it comes out. I can’t recommend his books highly enough.
