This is an invitation to awaken the spiritual heart. You have heard the saying “unless you be like little children you will not enter the kingdom of heaven”. Where do you suppose the kingdom of heaven is? It is within each one of us. It is both a psychological state of mind and an eternal space of pure consciousness – Love. It is here with us now as it has been from the beginning and will be forever. Love has no exceptions. It is Truth and Principal!
In the early morning before the rooster crows in this neighborhood I am up and listening for life to share her wisdom that otherwise I may not hear. This morning I am relieved to hear and feel what is there. I was thinking about the energy of ego and the energy of heart. I am given ideas to consider about the spirit of our heart. The nature of anything is to become more of what it already is.The organic heart itself in the body is the very life giving organ without which nothing else can carry out it’s function. The spirit of the heart is the light and life giving energy. It’s nature is both dynamic and informed. It is expressive, spontaneous, purposeful and unmatched. The ego or personality is formed in the brain as neuronal hardwiring of patterns from childhood. Thinking, choosing and reacting from habits creates more of itself again and again. I define the characteristic traits of the ego as dynamite, audacious,emotional,impulsive, calculating, clever, clout-full and forceful.
The context from which the heart functions is essentially unconditional perfect love.The context from which the ego functions is fear. We are all given life in abundance. The context we choose to walk this path from determines our wholeness and completion or our unfinished past or incompletion.
Our spiritual heart is the source of our wholeness. It is a powerful and effortless flow; a surrender that can be felt with inner awareness. When we are not authentic and integrated with our spirit, absorbed in the small self, feelings of unworthy, inadequate, perspective from ego projects explosively into the world around itself. Ultimately it is destructive energy towards oneself and others. It is created from illusions of mind and thoughts originating from fear not love.
