    I love the question "How is your heart at this very moment, at this breath?"  That is so personal, so present.  That's so different than, "How's it going? or "Hey" or whatever other   When I share the state of my heart, I am open -- it sometimes feels risky, it often elicits a personal response from the other.  That kind of interaction is intimate and is what is most worthwhile in living.  The practice of examining the dark corners of my soul and being with another who is doing the same helps me to want it and do it all the more.  The author says he doesn't have a magical solution for our busy,doing, heart avoiding culture.  The solution is in sharing "How is your heart at this moment, at this breath?"
