The conflict between the head and the heart can be boiled down to this: Are you going to risk everything for something unknown (the heart risk) and appear ridiculous to the head, or are you going to go the ego-preserving way of the personality? Of course, everything is a risk when you push the frontiers of love. The whole problem with the heart’s war with the head is that the head always thinks it will lose something.
Everything you will do will be according to your will
and your will is what your heart wants to do.
This is a great secret. There are two sides to the heart, the soft cuddly compassionate side with unlimited empathy and the side pertaining to courage, resolution, and fortitude. This is the side of the heart where the will resides. We have tremendous will to do anything we love to do, anything that springs directly from the heart. When our heart is in something, time goes by fast. It is easy to get out of bed at five in the morning if our hearts are beating, anticipating the manifestation of our love, no matter what that love might be. If it’s to go fishing, or make money to support our family, if our heart is in it, there is no conflict.
With love comes a tremendous will to change.
And even then, change comes hard.
We are always where our heart is; we cannot be anywhere else. Our body might be in one place, our heart in another. It does not matter where your body is. It is where your heart is that matters. You can be at the movies, in bed with someone you don’t really love, or at work. If your heart is not there, if your heart is not really into what you are doing, you, the real you, will be somewhere else. Anything we do without our heart is a losing game.
So, this is another simple clue: Is my heart in this? Do I really want to be doing this? If our heart is not into something, we should stop and find out what we really want to do. This answer is usually right at the tip of our tongue because we feel the conflict directly between our heads and our heart.
If we are in bed with the wrong person, and our heart is shouting this out to us, have the courage and integrity to say, sorry, I really don’t want to be doing this. It is helpful in life to always keep our bodies close to our hearts. Our integrity and health in life depend on us keeping our bodies where our heart is. How many people work their entire lives with the constant yearning for something else? How many people are following their dreams? Following their hearts?
The real problem for modern man is abandoning the heart center of feelings. Our civilization has brought us to the point where the heart has no home. We have a heartless society where vulnerability (See Simple Clue #1) is avoided at all costs, so our hearts close and stay closed.
Psychopaths and sociopaths are extreme versions of heartless people, and the world is fuller of them than our psychologists tell us. They are running the world and have completely taken over the field of medicine. They have been impassioned with hurting people with drugs, radiation, unnecessary surgery, and vaccines. They love injecting people with a wide variety of toxins and now have reached the zenith with their experimental genetic shots that are mowing the public down and bankrupting the life insurance companies with levels of death we do not even see during wars.
Heroes, by definition, are people with great hearts. We need heroes; we are in great need of people with big hearts.
Being Still and at Peace?
You will penetrate your heart
if you can but still the mind.
This is another simple clue. Are we at peace with ourselves? The conflict with the head disappears when we have centered in our hearts. If we could stop the endless merry-go-round of our minds, we might begin to hear the deeper voice of our hearts. We might start to listen to our being speaking through the mists of our fears. Typically our fears are more precious to us than our love of being, which is why we find it difficult to trust our heart’s real message.
Meditate on the ground of your being.
Fix your consciousness pure consciousness.
Only when our consciousness becomes still
do we become aware
of the experience of pure being.
Special Note: The first HeartHealth exercise, in fact, all of them, are heart-centering meditations. The first one is like taking an elevator down from your head into your chest, where the heart center resides. If one can touch the heart (not easy if it’s been closed), one knows it because the tears of the melting heart come, and the endless stream of thoughts disappears.
