When you awaken your heart, you find to your surprise that your heart is empty.  If you search for the awakened heart, there is nothing but tenderness.  You feel sore and soft, and if you open your eyes to the rest of the world, you feel tremendous sadness.  It occurs because your heart is completely open, exposed.  It is the pure raw heart that has the power to heal the world.
