In everyday language it is common to use the expression “at the heart of” or “the heart of the matter” indicating how the heart is considered to be of essence or of utmost importance. It’s also interesting to note how the same significance is not attributed to the mind although important in its own right. So what language is reflecting is the implicit agreement among us that the heart comes, or at least ought to come, prior to anything else.
Of course what we refer to as the heart, when not using the term literally or medically, is not the physical organ but a metaphor to the internal space, our seat of silent power, which allows positive human elements to arise: Love, intuition, compassion, courage, hope and trust.
It is common wisdom that the biggest battles we go through are those between the heart and mind. When the heart and mind are not in sync or our of balance, there is internet conflict and confusion that often leads us to get lost off track. On the other hand, when both the heart and mind are in tune, life opens up in seemingly miraculous ways because our energy is focused on our deepest desires and our life purpose instead of being wasted in conflict. There is a deep sense of peace, purpose and belonging that ripple throughout everything we do.
The more life I experience, the stronger is my conviction that having an open heart is the most beautiful and powerful think one can achieve. Having spent many years seeking knowledge and reaching academic goals, this profound truth was somehow concealed. Yet now I firmly believe that knowledge no matter how rich and vast can never stand half as tall as the strength of the heart. In history, there have been numerous enlightened masters, gurus, saints and spiritually evolved people whose knowledge of the world was at best fair. Their true power, inner peace and contagious charisma came from their heart.
The heart has its own power codes, the keys that when found and made to use, open it to its full power and majesty. Here are what I hold as being the seven codes of the heart.
