Living with Risk...

"Life responds when we risk. It meets us more than halfway & almost always demonstrates that the risk was worth taking. The heart's sure release is in moving with that release. It is in taking that step w/o assurances. Do we want to be 70 years old & saying to ourselves on our deathbeds "I wish I had...?" The way to prevent this regret is to live and risk in a never-ending journey deeper into our hearts. Are we willing to die to our old ways and risk the new? With experience our faith in this uncharted path of the heart will mature, and our mind will give up its battle to control. There is no other way to open the door to our heart except by risking our fears. What do we have to lose?"
