I used to be embarrassed by my capacity to love. I’ve never been described as being emotionally shy, but for most of my life growing up as a sensitive Cancer, the vulnerability of being a Bhakti Yogi felt like my greatest liability. (I’d only admit to this behind closed doors in a whispered voice). Why couldn’t I be good at some really respectable quality like perseverance or fearlessness? So I would put on various disguises to hide my enormous Heart Chakra. I didn’t want to be ridiculed by the other kids.
