Tikkun Halev—the Healing of the Hardened Heart

As we step into the month of Nisan, we begin the work of tikkun halev—the Healing of the Hardened Heart.  

May we
     Free ourselves from stories that bind us to anger, jealously and pain.
    Let go of habits that perpetuate isolation and fear.
    Free ourselves from reacting with harsh judgment and disdain.
    Let go of ways of being that keep us from seeing ourselves in each other.

May the softening of the hardened heart guide us to enter into fuller connection with each other and the unfolding of all life.
