The relationship between heart and
mind centers around the flow of our creative life energy. To live in
the heart one surrenders to the flow of energy as it is. Here one is
so absorbed with the flow that they are out if mind and what mind
thinks. In the heart one becomes one with the energy. Being in the
heart and energy aspect of Creation is the
feminine aspect of being
for it nurtures and sustains the Creation as it is.
Mind is about switching and channeling the flow of one’s creative
life energy into a new creation. To live in the mind is to identify
with the consciousness that is arises from the flow of your creative
life energy and is experiencing the flow. It is to identify with the
identity that mind has created for itself as to who and what it
thinks it is. Being in mind and the consciousness aspect of Creation
masculine way of being for mind thrusts what it thinks into
the flow of energy to change the flow of energy causing the Creation
to change. It is here, when we are in mind, we become a co-creator
of Creation. That is we take the existing flow and channel it the
way we wish it to be.
What clearly needs to be understood is that mind, by its very
nature, alters Creation my shifting the flow of energy. You will
alter, and do alter, Creation simply by existing and thinking. In
this respect you are a creativity machine and cannot not create. The
question is are you conscious of what you think for you are changing
Creation subconsciously or consciously by your thinking.
If you wish to know the flow of energy of both yourself and
Creation, you need to go into the flow of your creative life energy
symbolized by the heart and what you feel for that feeling is
related to the flow of energy that is being sensed by the body. If
you wish to know what is being created, you simply need to look a
what stands in front of you for that is what your mind has created.
What you see and experience in front of you is where you are
directing the energy of creation and it is flowing and sustaining
Creation in response to what your mind individually and collectively
desires to create.
Although we each have an infinite creative ability to create
whatever we desire, collectively we agreed to have a physical
experience so there is a lot of beliefs and thinking we share
collectively that creates most of the world we experience and it can
be very difficult to break free of these collective beliefs to
create something new. However, the differences we see in each
individual’s life is reflective of who and what they think and
believe they are and how they think and believe the universe works.
If you compare what you feel with the heart and what you see with
the mind you can being to discern where mind has interjected itself
to change the flow of Creation and where Creation is flowing free
without the imposition of your mind.
If one becomes aware of this flow by focusing their attention and
awareness, symbolically on their heart as the source of their
creative life energy, in the awareness of what they feel, how they
feel and where they feel, they can develop an
internal compass to
guide them in life. Aligning with a particular type of feeling, that
we all have in one form or another and which can best be described
as a fulness of being, one accesses an internal compass that can
lead them to a life to what some have described as an internal bliss
and joy that seems to never run dry no matter what is happening in
the external world and to the source of their creative powers.
It is important to note, the consciousness of the heart will awaken
and become aware quite naturally in a state of spontaneous and
innocent childlike play of discovery and exploration of the
universe. However, the problem most of us face, because of the
conditions of childhood, is that we lost the ability to be in this
state of play before the heart consciousness awakened or if it did
awaken, before mind became consciously aware of its existence and
how to use it. In not having a consciousness awareness in the heart
and what we feel, we lose our direct connection with the source of
our being and the Source of Creation Itself. Hence the origin of the
concept of “original sin.” The concept that somehow humans seem to
be incomplete and separated from the source of their being. The
heart consciousness is what give the awareness of the source. It is
one’s direct connection to the Source of their being and their
creative powers and to the Source of Creation.
Most of us have, a best, a partial awakening of heart consciousness
or the heart consciousness remains asleep and unaware. The question
is, “How does one create the space for the heart consciousness to
awaken, birth and grow in strength such that it can survive in the
world as it currently exists?” It many ways heart consciousness is
much like a human - it must be conceived (awaken to its own
existence), grow in a safe warm space much like an embryo, be
birthed and grow until it can stand on its own to feet and survive
in the world on its own.
When one awaken to the creative process of the heart and what one
feels, and they can sees reality thought the view of the heart, they
come to realize they needs to create an effective balance between
the view of the heart and view of the mind. But balancing mind and
heart is not about using both equally. It is about learning to dance
between mind and heart. Because of the way the masculine and
feminine aspects of being cause a creation to happen, it is about
allowing the view of heart to dominate to create what one desires
and may even require one’s life to become a
single point meditation.
One will discover that they desire to live from the heart allowing
the feeling of fulness of being to lead. Listening to the heart
creates a richer and fuller life than mind could ever create for it
allows one to create the desire they have. When one becomes aware of
the heart and what the feelings one has really means relative to
directing one’s life they will find there are four primary ways to
live life. Each way has different implications. Most live in some
combination of the four. They are 1) to live from the mind, 2) live
from the heart, 3) mind intend, heart attend, and 4) heart intend
and mind attend.
