Our hearts are full, wide-open yet defined-
If the heart were to move outside of itself,
It would bleed, leak, explode or simply fall apart.
Definition has a strong purpose-
It is a discipline.
It is the drawn safety line, the zone of concentrated power from within defined space.
The heart is a beautiful muscle to exercise.
In order to engage this muscle there must be a partnership.
The heart never leads alone-
It never beats alone-
One pulse follows the other and it moves in the direction of unity or union always.
Union requires two-
If you look at the physical make-up of the heart, it's location and body attachments, you'll see partnership. The human heart has four chambers sectioned in two halves and a wall of muscle separates the two pairs. There is a double-walled sac that encases the heart. This serves as protection of the heart and anchors it inside the chest. To assist the circulatory function of the heart, you were given a pair of lungs and as an extension of the heart, you have a pair of arms and two breasts.
What do we do when we see something cute?
We say, awweee... and our arm moves automatically to place our palm quietly and naturally between our breasts, at the center of heart and we feel...
We connect and re-connect to ourselves and other people- - two sets of pairs.
The heart is so powerful, it is protected by many layers of definition-
The aura, skin, muscle, bones, even our minds-
Boundaries - Discipline
Protect the layers of life inside.
Anahata- (Anna Hottah) is the name of the heart-
It means, "unstruck" or "unhurt."
The heart, its beat-
Is the only function that causes sound without the physical striking of two things.
It is unstruck = yet it speaks.
It is unstruck = yet it is heard.
It is unhurt = yet it feels.
The name implies that beneath the hurts and grievances of the past,
Lies a pure spiritual place where no hurt exists-
The heart is a beautiful muscle to exercise and it invites the experience of connection.
You must come quiet and still...
If it's loud, you cannot hear the heart.
You must be silent, a witness, a presence-
A presence full of life.
You see, the heart reminds us, in order to create a spark - life!
You cannot go at it alone-
That in a way, it's physically impossible because the heart itself is made up of pairs.
You invest in yourself- It is the investment and you = Pairs.
You invest in others- It is you and another = Pairs.
You simply relate or form relationship.
The heart does not beat alone.
It does not lead alone.
One pulse follows the other in complete unification -
You are unified through your precious heart.
Now, that's a powerful experience!
