Allowing LOVE into our lives....

I know....I know...
sounds corny...
But it's NOT....
We read articles and novels and E-books on 'Letting Love In'...
Dr Phil and Opra and Oz and EVERYBODY ELSE and "their mother'!!
 are lecturing to us about LOVE...
EVERY DAY....
EVERY DAY....
And we REALLY consider what they're saying....
and we contemplate....and speculate...
and ultimately, 
we just continue on as we were before....
none the wiser....
And then we turn around one day....
and we realize, in no uncertain terms, that we've SABOTAGED ourselves right into a corner...
for even though we certainly have the CAPACITY to LOVE...
we lack the ABILITY to BE LOVED.....
Is it an issue of SELF ESTEEM ?
or...
PARENTING ?
or 
CULTURE?
What about the HEART CHAKRA ?
I mean...
we practice YOGA....and we conceptually MEDITATE....
we work on the Chakras...
(at least the aspiring enlightened ones do!)
and STILL....
and STILL.....
the heart remains relatively CLOSED....
or so it SEEMS....
What if we were to somehow SHED ALL of the EXTERNAL blockages ?
the things KEEPING us from love ?
What would that look like ?
Feel like ?
