For awhile we thought the heart should be

Kept out of the room of the mind–

That will allow us to see what’s really there,

Without the twine of feeling.


Now we’ve begun the turn-around,

We let the heart back in.

Reality’s not far, it’s near,

Comforting and healing.


It was in our heart all the time we were looking outward,

It was Love and Kindness, Joy, In Fact,

All around and Inward.
