What we call “heartbreak” is not a breaking at all, but only the contraction of our awareness. For the truth is that we are loved from all directions: by the earth that feeds us, by the breath that sustains us, and by the wisdom that waits for us in all things. But because we so often experience love as a tightening of focus, a clenching of consciousness, we forget that when the narrow point of our affection disappears, we still always have the ability to pull back the lens and behold the complete scope of love. You can learn a lot about heartbreak by taking long walks, for as you move through streets or forests, upon the earth and under the sky, you will find your awareness naturally becoming as large as the world around you. And as you walk with this enlarged awareness, you will remember: Nothing in you has broken. Nothing has dried up. You are standing in a rainstorm of beauty and wonder. You don’t have to keep gathering water with a eyedropper.

Try to make friends with the present moment, for it is the captain of the ship on which you are traveling. If you come to it, as we often do, with nothing but demands and agendas, it will not take you where you want to go. If the present moment seems tough or uncaring, remember that you have not yet earned its trust either. You must come to it with something in your hands: some appreciation, some willingness to listen. Keep reversing every experience by asking what you can give to it. If you think and live this way, you will find yourself in world that is no longer random, a world in which cooperation exists in all things. For after all, the journey you are making is everyone else’s too.

The world is unraveling. Look closely at your new clothes: you will see a thousand threads already separating from the fabric. Look at your mind: you will see a thousand thoughts rebelling against the sense of self you’ve tried so hard to cultivate. And in the midst of this, it’s easy to see love as one more unraveling thing, one more garment constantly wearing out. But love is not the material, but rather, the tailor, who is just as comfortable taking apart a suit in order to learn from it as weaving together a new one. So today, try to be the tailor: if things come together for you, you can develop joy; if they come apart, you can develop wisdom. You can always develop love. For life is too short to waste fighting this great unraveling, especially when all we have to do to be well is work skillfully with the cloth in our hands.
