The Heart


The papyrus depicts 'weighing of the heart' in Egyptian Occultism
Only from the heart,you can touch the sky.
- Rumi


"God dwells in you, as you, and you don't have to 'do' anything to be God-realized or Self-realized, it is already your true and natural state. Just drop all seeking, turn your attention inward, and sacrifice your mind to the One Self radiating in the Heart of your very being. For this to be your own presently lived experience, Self-Inquiry is the one direct and immediate way."
- Sri Ramana Maharshi


The Hawaiians have long believed that it is through the heart we learn the truth.The heart has its own intelligence as distinctly as the brain does.And the Egyptians believed it is the Heart not the brain,was the source of human wisdom .The heart was considered as the center of the soul and the personality.That it was through the heart divine spoke,giving ancient Egyptians knowledge of their true path.And they believed it was good thing to go into afterlife with a light heart.

Saints,Sages and Yogis,through out the history,unanimously described one sacred union that occurs in the heart.Whether it is the writings of the St.John of the Cross,Rumi's poetry,or the Tantric teachings of India.All of these teachings try to express the subtle mystery of the heart.It is in the heart union of Shiva and Shakti,Masculine penetration into the spiral of life,and feminine surrender to change.Witnessing an unconditional acceptance of all that is,in order to open our heart,we must open ourselves to change.To live in the seemingly solid world,dance with it,engage with it ,live and love fully,but yet know that it is impermanent and ultimately all forms dissolves and change.
