Simple Clues to Being in the Heart – Can You Make Yourself Vulnerable? – Heart Clue #1

Published on October 15, 2022

The first key or clue to the heart is: can you open yourself to being vulnerable? Can you communicate so that it does not matter what others say or do? If we cannot be vulnerable with the people we love the most, we can forget the universe of the heart. Our closest intimate relationships give us the best mirror of our love. Anything we keep secret from the closest person to us feels a weight around our hearts. Anything we are afraid to share, we tend to hide, and this closes the heart.

Modern man has increasingly lost his soul. Modern medicine has no soul. Anyone connected to COVID vaccines has proven to be a soul terrorist, which is sustained now that we find out that the vaccines were never even tested to prevent transmission. A cry to heaven is rising into screams as millions of people’s lives have been ruined. I mention this because injections have made a significant part of the human race vulnerable, more than ever before. Cancer makes people vulnerable, but again, we go back to this simple clue, if you are suffering, can you allow the vulnerable feeling to rise and the tears of the melting heart to fall down your cheeks?

I am afraid the world has turned away from vulnerability, from the heart’s love, compassion, and empathy, and now we will possibly pay the ultimate price. The truth is this has been going on for a long time.

The Heart is the Vulnerability of Being

The purpose of our life here on this earth
is to contact our being, expand and grow our being
by coming into a direct relationship
with the essence of our heart’s true nature.
And what is this true nature?
The heart is the vulnerability of being.

Vulnerability is the capacity or susceptibility to being hurt. The word vulnerable is also synonymous with the phrases openness and exposure. When a person is genuinely vulnerable, there is an unobstructed entrance or view to the person’s heart, being, and soul. In the strongest or most enlightened person, there is no protecting or concealing cover because the person needs none. Such people carry themselves in full view of others because they are not afraid of being hurt. After all, they are not afraid to suffer.

The most important key to finding the love of the heart
is found in our willingness and ability to be vulnerable.

The Heart is the Vulnerability of being. This says it all when it comes to the heart. Our ego (separate self) is the edifice we have fabricated to protect our hearts. It is the wall that all beings create on this planet to protect themselves from being hurt.

Hurt is something our beings naturally feel. Hurt is the appropriate response of the human heart when attacked or misunderstood. When we betray the innocent and vulnerable nature of the pure heart, we cause hurt. When we are born, we have a great capacity to be hurt. Babies and young children are totally at the mercy of their environment. They are vulnerable but slowly lose this after years of being repeatedly hurt and misunderstood. We slowly lose the vulnerability of being as we erect our ego or separate mental self. When Christ said that we needed to be born again, he was referring to reversing this process.

When we betray the innocent and vulnerable nature
of the pure heart, we cause hurt.
The separate mind is the betrayer of the
universe of heart and true being.

When we are vulnerable, we put away the fancy airs we put on and drop our self-image, which is always hoping to look a little better than we feel. Any spiritual self-image automatically blocks our vulnerability, thus cutting off the heart and blocking us from the very thing we want – love. When we do expose ourselves, we become psychologically naked. This only happens when our defenses are down and when we are not worried that others will attack or judge us. Then we can be just who we are. 

But this isn’t easy because that is exactly what happens when we just are. People want us to be or feel or think something different. The paradox of vulnerability is that, though we can only be vulnerable when we are not worried that others will judge us, vulnerability means openness to such an attack. In human relations, no situation is entirely safe regarding our vulnerabilities. When we first learn to open ourselves, picking the most gentle and caring people we can find to open our hearts with is prudent.

Christ’s instructions for being born again were clear.
What he was talking about was that childlike quality
of pure vulnerability. This is the space of pure being.

It takes courage and strength to be our naked, vulnerable selves. And yet it is who and what we are whether we have the courage or not. Our true feelings and emotions and open expression represent the pathway into our vulnerability.   The path of vulnerability is for the strongest, and it is for the most humble. It is for those who can remain close to the ground, meaning it is for those who are not secretly hoping to look a little better than they are. Humble vulnerable people do not walk around with a self-image to protect themselves. They feel what they feel and share what they feel without shame.

When we open our hearts we are surrendering ourselves
to the vastness and strength and love of God, the cosmic intelligence.
We open ourselves and make ourselves vulnerable
to a great being which is one with all beings.
Open to experience, open to it all.
It’s thrilling and sometimes even terrifying.
Open to love, and this is something else again.
Being open to whatever life sends us is our proof
of our surrender of our love for God.

After many years or incarnations of being closed in the heart, vulnerability to other human beings can be terrifying. When we fall in love, the first thing we do is open our hearts, exposing our sensitivities and vulnerabilities, giving power to someone to wound or reject us. This is why many people are afraid to fall in love. In any situation, until the heart is used to being open, vulnerability initially feels like our heart is going to come right up through our throats.

To treasure vulnerable love
is the first law of a pure heart.

Christopher Hills

We cannot begin to flow towards another person or our higher or inner being until the psychic skin covering the heart is removed. The risk is significant when we open because once we enter that vulnerable space, our heads and their games disappear. We lose our ego’s protection, that wicked sense of separation is released, and we feel that good feeling flowing. We crave that feeling of aliveness that comes from opening up. We feel safe once we are in this space. A welling-up feeling fills our insides with warmth and a sense of caring—the pure in heart treasures vulnerability above all else. A person tuned to love cherishes this space because they know intuitively that this is what is most needed in human relations.

The purest heart has no mind.
The pure in heart is all heart.

If we are open, we can not be hurt too badly because the heart is the totality of being and that being is solid and open to whatever the cosmos sends it. When we are open in the heart, there is less place for the hurt to stick and less mind to dwell and suffer obsessively. The heart can feel and suffer, but these feelings pass quickly for solid hearts. The heartfelt person can be thrown to the ground. But these people pick themselves up, dust off their pants, and get about the business of living life.

It is our capacity to endure the sufferings of life
that often measures the degree of our being.
Love experienced to the depth of our pain.
This is one true measure of our love,
our capacity to feel and care.
