John reminds us that being openhearted is about boundaries.
It’s not about judgement or criticism. It’s about respect, honour and love for self, equally as much as for the other. Taking care of others to the detriment of self is sacrifice not love. It may begin with love and being Spirit led. However, the moment we lose our equality in the mix then it’s emotion led.
Without boundaries we can become lost in should, could and ought to. The world of should, could and ought to is vast and we may never find our way out.
