Message from the author
Mystical wisdom holds the simple and beautiful notion that there are as many interpretations as stars in the sky. Like the stars Heart Story has myriads of unlimited fresh perspectives and interpretation's, it is not the pursuit of a canonical meaning.
When you read this story, I implore you to see yourself reflected within the story and make your own interpretations rather than rely on the story to tell you the meaning of the story. In this manner, “if you let it”, you will transcend your mind and undergo what the mystics call, metamorphosis of the heart, as the myriad perspectives of the story's consciousness evoking and underlying intuitive Heart Intelligence will lead you to – unlimited possibilities…!
