Lou Ludwig Success Tips: The Prison of a Closed Heart

The Prison of a Closed Heart

The Prison of a Closed Heart

 “The worst prison would be a closed heart.”

Pope John Paul II 1920 – 2006, Served as Pope of the Catholic

Church from 1978 to 2006




As I see it . . . . . . . .

The prison of a closed heart


When the heart is closed . . . . we close people out of our life . . . . and the good that they can bring into our life. We lose the personal interaction . . . . and the fellowship that the relationship would offer.


Keep your heart open . . . . and you open your life up to unlimited possibilities to come into your life.


Open your heart up to life . . . .  and creating the life that you want it to be.


The prison of a closed heart . . . . will lock you out of living a full and productive life. Open you heart and your possibilities become endless.

When I read this phrase  “The worst prison would be a closed heart.” I think of people trapped in unforgiveness.

Have I ever seen a lot of that these days. It is one of the reasons I turned off listing to political commentary.

He was filled with wisdom. It's hard to think that shortly after he wrote this, we lost him. He is missed.
