This is an interesting phenomenon which I found out empirically earlier and now suddenly discovered in my favourite saint’s writings (it seems he touched all possible subjects!).
“This is the phenomenon of reflection.There are people who may sit together, work together, live together for their whole lives, and yet they may be closed to one another. It is the same reflection. If the heart of one person is closed, its influence is to close the heart of another. A person with closed heart will close the heart of others everywhere he goes. Even the most loving person will helplessly feel the doors of the heart closed, to his greatest regret, not knowing what has happened. It is an unconscious phenomenon.” said Hazrat Inayat Khan.
And indeed it is so! Strange enough, if there is a person with a closed heart, it takes a huge amount of love to withstand this breath of death (a closed heart feels like a death of the Spirit)…
I wonder if anyone of you have made same or opposite experiences?
