    Reclaiming Our Collective Heart

    Post  infiniteblue on Mon Jun 13, 2011 8:43 pm

    Hi Everyone

    I thought for my first thread I would share an article I wrote recently for the Coffs Coast Alternative paper. I hope you enjoy

    LOVE ALLways, c

    Reclaiming Our Collective Heart

    Good rationale must be independent of emotions, personal feelings or any kind of instincts. Any rational process of evaluation or analysis must strive to be highly objective, logical and mechanical.

    It is somewhat ironic that it was during the period of our history known as the Age of Enlightenment that science and rationalism began to exclusively guide our advancement as a society, while the heart was relegated to the realm of sentimentality and romance.

    As we head deeper into the cold, hard calculating reality where everyone is numbered and life and worth is measured in dollars, it becomes increasingly clear that we need to reclaim our collective heart, or we risk completely devaluing and destroying ourselves and so much that is beautiful on our planet.

    Our hearts recognize true value beyond the dollar. In our hearts the future of our children and their descendants is far more important than accumulating material objects; to the heart the madness of destroying our ancient forests for fast-food burgers is blatant; and our hearts know that there is something very wrong when people are buying 200 million dollar yachts while there are starving children in deplorable conditions.

    Our hearts are there to remind us that we are not machines, we are naturally loving, compassionate, creative beings. When we align with our hearts we feel our interconnectedness and understand that when some benefit at the expense of others, we all lose.

    Our hearts crave closeness, meaning, purpose and a sense an innate belonging that are not found in the prevalent rat race style reality. By following our hearts we will be guided back towards reconnection with the natural world, each other and ourselves.

    I sense a deep energetic shift taking place and I hear the call of the heart getting louder. The call is urging us to heal the rift between rationality and heart awareness so that the heart and the mind can operate as one. When we collectively learn to heed that call and allow both love and reason to guide our decisions, then, I feel, we will have truly stepped into an Age of Enlightenment.

    > The Heart is made up of the same Tissue as the Brain.

    > The Heart registers a Beat or Pulse and the Brain operates off of that Impulse...

    It is the Heart which Guides Us and what They have tried to do is Train Us to treat the Heart sentimentally or that It gets in Our way...

    I will simply say this. The Heart lets Us live an Upright and True Life if only We will go back to listening and following It's Impluses as the Originator of Them in Physicality - Not the Brain or Mind as We have been trained to think...

    Awesome Post infiniteblue...

    BTW - Welcome...

    very welcome infiniteblue! I enjoyed your thoughts.

    wow great Mercuriel, I think the same way.

    We are living beings, the life force is what we need to recognize in us. You are so right the heart and brain are just organs. We use them to express ourselves and deal in the matter. We use our 5 sences to be here. We are living entities and we have personalities as souls. Our personalities are very different with our experience and memories from the ages. It is nature. It is nature IQ.
    As we recognize that we are not gross body, as we study and learn what is subtle body - mind, how it strugles to get answers, how it operates and how it is influenced by living in matter, we know who we are.

    I sometimes think we are here to learn this simple lession.

    kind wishes

    What a great post infiniteblue and a lovely way to start your first thread.
    The mind thinks and computes , weights and compares , judges and makes conclusions ... this is all very usefull.
    But the Heart Knows and unites for it made of Love .
    Love is our foundation , Heart is who we really are.

    Love from me

    ENIGMA

    Return To Innocence

    That's not the beginning of the end
    That's the return to yourself
    The return to innocence
    Love - Devotion
    Feeling - Emotion
    Love - Devotion
    Feeling - Emotion
    Don't be afraid to be weak
    Don't be too proud to be strong
    Just look into your heart my friend
    That will be the return to yourself
    The return to innocence
    If you want, then start to laugh
    If you must, then start to cry
    Be yourself don't hide
    Just believe in destiny
    Don't care what people say
    Just follow your own way
    Don't give up and use the chance
    To return to innocence
    That's not the beginning of the end
    That's the return to yourself
    The return to innocence
    Don't care what people say
    Follow just your own way Follow just your own way
    Don't give up, don't give up
    To return, to return to innocence.
    If you want then laugh
    If you must then cry
    Be yourself don't hide
    Just believe in destiny

    Hmm, I do like the editor of your newspaper. It's so good to hear about an editor who recognizes with her heart what her readers need for their souls.
