The “spell” of this world is believing in appearances and forgetting all the beauty inside. When the heart shuts down, an anger seems to grow in its place. But an opportunity arises to extend love and the heart begins to open again. In forgiveness, which is looking past appearances entirely, we are reminded of the inner beauty that was always present. To paraphrase the pop standard: Fairy tales can come true; it can happen to you, when you are pure in heart. There is a song in all of us waiting to be sung. We need only let go of limitations and doubts and judgments for this song to come through.
