The heart is the soul’s gateway, both into life and beyond into eternity. The heart is the timeless and indestructible source of all higher knowledge. It is the one point within each person where the inner and outer forces are the same. Within the heart, the will of God and your own may be brought into harmony” — Jesus
Continuing my book review and sharing of Glenda Green’s inspiring book, Love Without End — Jesus Speaks, the author contemplates in her chapter “The Heart is Your Higher Intelligence” the historical celebrations of the heart, such as on Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and other holidays on which we celebrate some aspect of our heart’s devotion. Then there’s country music which raises verse and song to the broken hearts . . . and the subsequent need for counselors to fix them. “How little,” she writes, “we know about its fullest and truest meaning.”
She then cites medical evidence and scientific data concerning our physical heart: “…physicians report that the physical organ has never been stronger, which accounts for our larger bodies and greater longevity. Yet, at the same time, heart disease is still on the best seller list of tickets to Heaven! The physical heart is a life-giving organ, with deep and wonderful resources, most of which have yet to be discovered.”
Our physical hearts exemplify innocent perception and awareness. Just consider how, for instance, without judgment, complaint, or condemnation it pumps clean and dirty blood through its chambers with equal vigor and blessing. Sort of inspires me to have a more non-judgmental attitude toward what the River of Life brings through me and my world for blessing and passing on to other members in the larger body of Man, the Body of our Creator.
Speaking of the physical heart, Glenda also cites Oriental medicine and philosophy for bringing to our awareness “an important and wonderful energy field which surrounds both our bodies and our physical hearts, and every day more evidence is surfacing that this complex and intricate field of electrical energy is a life enhancing source to the physical heart.” She cites acupuncture for revealing deeper and more pragmatic evidence of this energetic field in its exploration and therapeutic use of the meridians in and around the body, opening a door to “alternative” or “complementary” medicine’s debut into western science and healthcare.
Moving from the physical heart to the psychological perspective of the heart, modern psychology has introduced the now popular view that there are “right-brained” and “left-brained” approaches to life, the right-brained people considered “heart people,” who are “more intuitive, emotional, empathic and responsive, while, in contrast, left-brained people are more logical, analytical, competitive and initiatory. This dichotomy,” she suggests, “is often carried to the extreme of referring to ‘heart people’ as feminine and ‘logical people’ as masculine.” She lends a certain amount of credibility and truth to these observations based solely on the “bicameral nature of the brain.” The real truth, she offers, lies in the “reflection such limited assumptions cast upon the culture in which we live…. In our culture, the heart has generally been considered the emotional, empathic, intuitive, and feminine side of our being. The complete spectrum of the heart’s power has been missed by most people. All of the above considerations about the heart are important and valid, yet each alone is incomplete. Even taken collectively, they do not equal the Sacred Heart of which Jesus spoke.”
Here is what Glenda recorded Jesus — whom she knows more historically as “Jeshua” and more intimately as “The Beloved” — as saying about the significance and power of the heart:
There is a point within each person where the physical, spiritual, emotional, and intellectual components of one’s existence are in perfect synchronicity. At that point, there is no difference in elements, time, space, or condition. This is the personal ‘zero point’ which is known prior to birth, immediately after death, and anytime in between when a person’s will has been perfectly reconciled with the will of God. A person is forever able to connect with his Creator in that sacred place, regardless of how far he has strayed through the process of living. At the point of true simplicity, you may enter into perfect communion with the Father. Whenever you do, your life will be renewed or even transformed.
The heart is a magnetic vortex through which the blessings of all essences and potentialities are received, integrated, and focused into living. Through the laws of electromagnetism, that power is converted into life energy. The heart, being essentially magnetic, functions best through innocent awareness which attracts and receives. Acts of judgment, which divide and repel, will shut the door of the heart behind you. If you would make the heart strong, you must first learn to perceive with innocence, accept, and forgive. As you empower your heart it will open to you. At first you may simply notice this change as more passion for living, more peaceful sleep, or better digestion of food. The heart is the center of your health and quality of living, therefore those things will be addressed first. As you progress in your affirmations of the heart, however, your life will begin to have more abundant fruits, and you will have the energy needed to make more dramatic changes. Eventually, what you gain from your heart visitations will surpass your wildest dreams. There will be levels of energy which are transformational and transmutational.”
“In a world so preoccupied with power,” Glenda writes, “is it not ironic that the heart is so little understood. For Jesus said, ‘The heart center is the true source of human power.'”
Food for much thought and meditation. Certainly enough for today. See you in my next post. Until we meet again. . .
