What's A Heartstone?

I found my first heartstone on the shore of Lake Kinneret in 1998 -- a pale pink rock, flat and smooth, shaped like a perfect heart. I had been in bit of a funk, and seeing this treasure sitting in the sand jolted me out of my gloom and into the day. Now they appear when I least expect it, usually when I'm needing a moment of clarity, going through a time of change, feeling especially joyful, or thinking of someone special. I've collected dozens, although I have given most of them away. Heartstones remind me to step more slowly, look for the beautiful in life and in people, and always try to listen to my truest self.
