“Heart is unveiled sight…” From ON GOVERNANCE
Heart has many faces. It is the organ carrying life-force through and into our physical body. Heart contains the beat of life, the pulsating power of love that keeps our body alive. Beyond its physiological function, heart is what allows us to experience the stream of love, the primal energy that encompasses all life forms. This stream of love moves into our bodies, our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body. It also moves through our collective bodies. This stream is present in all life forms. The health and strength of this stream differs in each of us and depends on our willingness and the degree to which we cultivate heart wisdom.
Heart wisdom emerges from the knowing transmitted by the heart. The transmission of heart wisdom occurs through heart feelings, one of the languages of the heart. Heart feelings are joy, kindness, courage, compassion, wholeness, forgiveness, peace, strength, confidence, hope and many other feelings of well-being. Heart wisdom is the whole brain. The information of the heart is delivered through feelings, intuition, a sense of deep knowing. Heart wisdom always delivers information that assists the individual to experience a continuing evolving range of heart qualities and feelings. This is so because of the natural drive of the heart to evolve towards the fullest expression of itself in the body.
The heart operates from wholeness, oneness and therefore capable of understanding and integrating the complex web of life. The heart weaves together the many aspects of the body into an integrated whole. The mind is geared to primarily coordinate and manage the functioning and survival of the physical body. It operates from the premise of duality, separation and therefore is only capable of capturing reality as a separate and random aggregation of facts. The mind is essential to the operating of our body. The mind allows us to express the formidable power of our physical experience and our heart. As such, the mind is meant to be at the service of the heart that in turn coordinates the functioning of the whole being. When the mind is the leading guide, the individual or collective perceives his surroundings as a survival-driven reality. When the heart is the leading guide, the individual or collective perceives his surroundings as an integrated, whole and interconnected reality.
Heart intelligence is present when the mind and heart are in harmonic communication with each other. Heart intelligence is given when feelings generated by the heart are flowing into the mind and thus bringing the mind to a heart-compatible vibrational level. Heart intelligence is given when heart wisdom flows into and informs the mind.
When the gate between mind and heart is open, heart intelligence flows into the mind. The mind transfers this heart-filled information to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies thus bringing them into a coherent alignment with the heart. Since the heart contains the source of life, it is the heart that transmits life-force to the physical body. The same principle applies to collective bodies.
The transmission of life-force occurs to a big extent via the mind that activates the various bodily functions. Heart intelligence underlies cellular organization and guides and evolves organisms toward increased order, awareness and coherence of their bodies’ systems. It is through the flow of heart intelligence that the heart transmits life-force into our bodies. In other words, when the flow between heart and mind is open, when heart and mind are in coherence, it is heart wisdom that informs our mental, emotional and spiritual state. When we are in a coherent state, virtually no energy is wasted because our systems are performing optimally and there is synchronization between the various parts of the system. Coherence ensures proper immune-system function, clear thinking and emotional well-being. Heart intelligence is the expression of the power of love.
